Create a Strategy Map Report
Microsoft Visio is a powerful desktop visualization tool. As you saw in Chapter 2, the Visio Services component in
SharePoint Server 2013 allows Visio diagrams to be brought to life with real data. With PerformancePoint Services,
you can take that integration one step further. A Visio diagram can be created that visually represents the KPIs
on a scorecard. Those KPIs can then be connected to the Visio diagram to create a graphical representation of the
status of the enterprise. In PerformancePoint, this type of report is called a “strategy map.”
In this section, we will create a simple Visio diagram that we’ll deploy to PerformancePoint as a Strategy Map
report. The term “strategy map” refers to a particular type of diagram often used in conjunction with the “balanced
scorecard” methodology. While this feature in PerformancePoint is ideally suited for implementing that type of map,
any Visio diagram can be used as long as it contains only simple shapes that don’t involve sets or groupings
■ readers who are not familiar with visio or visio Services should review Chapter 2 before proceeding with
the rest of this section.
Launch Visio 2013, and create a new blank diagram using the Basic Diagram
(US Units) template.
Create a diagram with a set of simple shapes that looks something like the image
in Figure 6-119 . The precise details of the diagram are not important.
