Microsoft has announced the launch Patterns and Practices for SharePoint at DevConnections Las Vegas.

The MOSS P&P launch affirms that MOSS will be around for some time.
Microsoft has been pushing MOSS as their portal solution; Intranet and Internet. It is becoming clear that MOSS is becoming much more than a portal solution.
The director of SharePoint, Thomas Rizzo, wouldn’t comment on the release date of SP1 but he did recommend that all SharePoint users should install the infrastructure update.

Recently I have been working on a Business Intelligence (BI) planning team; we are looking to migrate to SQL 2008 as a BI platform.
A part of our process was to have a webcast with some Microsoft team members to showcase some of the features with company stakeholders.

Our agenda was to discuss reporting services in particular (SSRS). When it came time for the webcast, the demonstration focused more on Performance Point 2007 than SSRS.
One of the requirements for Performance Point is that it must run on SharePoint 2007.

To summarize, in order to get to ‘the Microsoft recommend BI platform’ you need to purchase.

1.       SQL 2008

2.       MOSS

3.       Performance Point 2007

I think it is great that all 3 of these products work well together, but that also means our budget and resource requirements multiply by 3x plus.
