Join Simon Allardice for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a Business Intelligence Center, part of SharePoint 2010 Essential Training.
There's a new site template called the Business Intelligence Center.…This only available in SharePoint 2010 Enterprise and only as a top-level site…in a new site collection.…So I'm going to create one here.…I'm in SharePoint Central Administration, which is the only place I can create it,…so you may have to get your administrator to do this for you.…It's available under the Enterprise tab as the Business Intelligence Center.…I'll just give it the name of sites/business.…It doesn't matter what you call it of course.…
It is a normal SharePoint site so it's made of a collection of lists and…libraries, but it's very, very different in intention from typical SharePoint…sites like team sites, Document Workspaces, and so on.…This site is about understanding your data, not about collaborating on it.…It's the site your CEO, your CFO, your business analysts want, the one that…allows them to scan the thousand different pieces of information that are…changing all the time.…
It's a way of getting insight on what's happening in your organization right now.…

Q: In the "Adding a user to a site" movie, the instructor shows how to add a user to SharePoint and demonstrates by adding a user named “gini.” But gini is already set up and recognized by SharePoint. What if I have no users set yet? How can I add someone?
A: SharePoint doesn't store a separate user database; it wants to be pointed to an existing source of users, like Active Directory. If you don't have that, you need to first add your new users as local accounts on the Windows box you installed SharePoint on. Only then will you be able to give them permission on a SharePoint site.
