Welcome to my random thoughts in regards to Business Intelligence, databases, and other technologies

SharePoint Server 2007 Training

Posted by denglishbi on February 7, 2009

As we have all heard now PerformancePoint Server Monitoring & Analytics is completely moving into the Office 14 SharePoint Server Enterprise product as PerformancePoint Services.  As it sits now the dashboards end up being a part of SharePoint at some point anyway with either WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007.  I just thought that I would provide some links to some resources that are available to build up your SharePoint knowledge and start diving into the product more.  This is definitely the direction that Microsoft is going with their products, so it is going to be important to really understand how everything integrates and works within SharePoint.

If you don’t have a copy of SharePoint to work with then the first thing you should do is download a trial version Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Trial Version.  You can also order the technical resource DVD to get additional resource information, presentations, SDKs, etc.  You can download the SDKs for WSS 3.0 and SharePoint Server 2007 if you want too.  If you want to get a VHD to use you could also download the 30-day trial Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 VHD or just download the MS BI VPC 7.1 which has this already loaded up and is good through the end of the year (version 7 had a time bomb expiration of 12/4/2009).

So now that you have the software on to the training references (some of the information is contained in multiple spots, seems to be scattered all over the place, so sorry for any duplicates):

That should be a good start.  Enjoy the links and leave a comment if you have any additional items that are good resources for learning SharePoint…I know there are tons of them.
