Wrox Professioal SP 2010 Admin — P. 603

Creating Analytic Chart Report (ACR) and Dashboard – Analytic reports are dynamic, visual representations of data that can be displayed as interactive line charts, bar charts, pie charts and tables (also called grids). PPS ACR remains connected to the data, which means they content is always up-to-date.

(For now skipping all contents related to creating an ACR…. Probably not in the scope of 70-668 is why)

Now Page 609.

Promoting PPS objects across environment —

>> Moving contents between servers requires that both servers are the same version, hot fixes, patches etc.
>> DD objects need to have unique names to ensure objects in the destination servr doesn’t get overwritten. Use naming convention.
>> Make sure there are no missing dependencies.
>> All data sources must have unique names – even they reside in different display folders (!!!!)
>> When promiting objects to production server, make sure your data source point to the production server.
