Deploying PerformancePoint Content to another SharePoint Site

PerformancePoint Dashboard Designer is usually synchronized with the SharePoint Site from where it was first downloaded. The PerformancePoint Content – Data Connections, Filters, Reports, Scorecards, KPIs and Dashboards from the workspace gets deployed to this SharePoint Site. In most implementations often there is a need to deploy the PerformancePoint Content to a different Business Intelligence SharePoint Site. For instance, deploy dashboards from test to production environment.

If you need to deploy your PerformancePoint content to a different SharePoint Site, follow these steps

1. Save and Version control your existing workspace file.
2. Run PerformancePoint Dashboard Designer from the newly created Business Intelligence SharePoint Site (Screen Capture 1). This new workspace will now point to the new SharePoint Site.
