    Historically speaking, all true change in the world has come thanks to leaders emerging, them taking charge and giving the masses someone to rally around. Can an intentionally "leaderless" movement survive or will it just slowly fade away?

    You want change, then get involved. Vote, run for office, go to shareholder meetings and contact advertisers or investors. Sitting around banging drums, singing kumbaya, smoking weed and having a camp out under the stars is not going to get you the change you want.

Heat/Tree Map Add-On for SharePoint 2010

Posted by Alan on January 12, 2010

With PerformancePoint Services 2010, Microsoft has removed some functionality that was available to us via the ProClarity components — Heat/Tree Maps and Scatter Diagrams.  

So my question  to all of you is that if someone developed a Silverlight Heat/Tree Map web part similar to the ProClarity component, that came with an interface to map into a SSAS cube that a consultant could use (i.e., no development work) and that would work with SharePoint 2010 would you buy it?  We know it can be done and if there is a market for it we might be willing to create a for-resale product.  

And, assuming the web part allowed unlimited usage within a single SharePoint deployment, how much would you be willing to pay?   Keep in mind that this would be (in the first release) a stand-alone webpart and not fully integrated with PerformancePoint Services.

So if it is something that might interest you, either post a comment here or drop me a line and if we get enough interest we might take on the project.

    I think the heat maps are heavily used in ProClarity if was going to ditch ProClarity for sharepoint analytics then I’d probably at least want the same functionality.

    Also what about a geographical heat map component that ues bing maps! Perhaps with a time slider so I can watch how my heat map blushes and fades over a time period.
