UPDATE (6/2/2011): Updated the Microsoft BI link to reflect updated BI site and resources (2nd link) and added the SharePoint 2010 Resource Centers link.

Looking for good information in regards to the Microsoft Business Intelligence components?  Not sure where to start?  Well look no further, here is a list I compiled that provides the current link to where the portal pages are for each BI related component:image

Microsoft Business Intelligence Scenarios http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/bi/default.aspx
Microsoft Business Intelligence http://www.microsoft.com/BI/en-us/pages/home.aspx
SQL Server Best Practices (MSDN & TechNet – slight differences and not sure why there are two of them) http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/sqlserver/bb671432.aspx
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sqlserver/bb331794.aspx
SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/sqlserver/cc510304.aspx
Report Builder http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/ff657833.aspx
SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/sqlserver/cc511477.aspx
SQL Server Analysis Services Multidimensional Data (SSAS) http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sqlserver/cc510300.aspx
SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) Data Mining http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sqlserver/cc510301.aspx
PowerPivot for Excel (Business Intelligence) http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/bi/ff604673.aspx
SQL Server Master Data Services (SSMDS) http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/sqlserver/ff943581.aspx
Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/default.aspx
Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Resource Centers http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/ff465365
Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/office/performancepoint/default.aspx#tab=1

 

These are all great reference points to help you get started in the technology, highlight particular areas, and also introduce you to the members of the community.  The first part is to find them and that has been taken care of (wish it was a bit easier myself…).  Some items listed are on TechNet and some on MSDN.  Not sure what the differences are between the two, TechNet and MSDN (IT Pros vs. Developers I guess), and that has confused me why these are split.  Now to go explore and check them out, that part is up to you.

If I have missed one please let me know and I will be sure to add it to the list.

Thanks and enjoy!
