Is SQL ENTERPRISE 2008 R2 required for Performance Point 2010?

  • My company would like to try Performance Point 2010. We already have a large SharePoint 2010 farm.

    The SharePoint Administrator said he thought SQL "ENTERPRISE" 2008 R2 maybe a requirement for Performance Point (or SSAS). Can anyone confirm or deny whether

    SQL Enterprise is required - we just want to demo a few reports to Sales Team.

    SQL Enterprise is very expensive $30K. We would like to use either SQL Standard or SQL BI 2008 R2 rather than SQL Enterprise 2008 R2.

    The administrator told me to research. 😎

  • Enterprise Edition of SQL 2008 R2 is not needed to run PerformancePoint 2010. I am running PP2010 with SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard. I've already published dashboards and it works.
