Can Dynamics CPM pick up where PerformancePoint left off?

Can Dynamics CPM pick up where PerformancePoint left off? And how does all of this fit in with SSRS Report Builder and Project Gemini, a key part of Microsoft's self-service BI drive? When you say things like "Microsoft Forecaster is a budgeting and planning application that allows companies to build budgets based on specific objectives", one has to wonder!

And "Enterprise Reporting is designed for sophisticated group reporting and consolidation needs, and includes advanced multi-dimensional consolidations, eliminations and multicurrency capabilities. Enterprise Reporting’s planning environment is easily customizable to fit diverse budgeting and forecasting needs across all industries and organizations. Enterprise Reporting provides strong analytical modules to make it extremely easy to create new ad-hoc reports on the fly"

Seriously? That's quite a bundle of tasks. Enquiring minds want to know more!

As far as I can tell, the CPM blog has no purpose or provide value to any audience. There is already plenty of material for each product, product descriptions, pricing information, support forums, etc. My recommendation is to check those out.

Product message boards:

FRx Product Info:

Forecaster Product Info:

As far as I can tell, Management Reporter does not have customers and provides only a subset of FRx functionality. I am unable to find an Enterprise Reporter site.
