This is an interesting news on Microsoft PPS.
As we all know, Microsoft entered into Business Performance Solutions or Corporate Performance solutions or Enter prise solutions space by introducing PPS (Performance Point Server) a few years ago. In the last Forrester Wave report (2007 ) report, Microsoft was also considered as a leader in this space.
But in the latest report published, Microsoft is not listed in the report and Host Analytics (only SaaS CPM Vendor (www.hostanalytics.com) took Microsoft's spot on this report.
FYI - Forrester Wave report is produced once in 2 years and it profiles major software product vendors world wide in each solution vertical.
