PerformancePoint Services is now INCLUDED with your EXISTING Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise license!

Microsoft has not only promised to incorporate what was formerly a standalone BI product, Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007, into Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2010 (?) Enterprise Edition, but they have actually updated the licensing of MOSS 2007 Enteprise, so you can start taking advantage of PerformancePoint Services RIGHT AWAY at no additional licensing cost! ("PerformancePoint Services will be a license entitlement for SharePoint Server 2007 E-CAL customers with Software Assurance.")

This is a huge win for organizations looking to analyze their business' performance without purchasing an entirely separate BI solution when they already have MOSS Enterprise up and running.
