In addition to this home page, the site template contains an instance of each of the lists and libraries described
in “List and Library Templates” earlier. This makes the site a good location for one or more complete solutions
to be stored. Additional content can be added to the site as needed.
To use enterprise features, your SharePoint site collection must have the SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection
Features feature activated under the Site Collection Features.
The PerformancePoint functionality is enabled using two additional features. The first is the PerformancePoint
Services Site Collection Features feature. This feature can also be found under Site Collection Features. The second
feature is activated at the site level and is named PerformancePoint Services Site Features. See “Deploying the
Business Intelligence Center” later in this chapter for step-by-step instructions for enabling these features.
Setting Up PerformancePoint Services
Like the other services we have examined in this topic, PerformancePoint Services are configured using Central
Administration or PowerShell commands (cmdlets). Let’s take a look at the settings for PerformancePoint Services,
along with the procedures for setting up a PPS instance.
The default, wizard-based installation of SharePoint Server 2013 includes an instance of the PerformancePoint
Services application, so creating a new instance is not normally necessary. If you do need to create one, however,
this can be easily accomplished through SharePoint Central Administration:
Open the Central Administration web site using the SharePoint 2013 Central
Administration link available in the server’s Start menu.
Navigate to the Central Administration ➤ Application Management ➤ Service Applications ➤
Manage Service Applications page. Note the default instance of PPS highlighted in Figure 6-11 .
