       The PerformancePoint Service is a SharePoint Server 2013 service application. It enables users to create business intelligence (BI) dashboards that provide insight into an organization's performance. By providing flexible, easy-to-use tools for rich dashboards, scorecards, and key performance indicators (KPIs) in web browsers, that can aggregate their content from multiple sources and help companies make important decisions.

For this demonstration ,I am using

Windows Server 2012.

First, we have to create site using SharePoint template “Business Intelligence Center” as shown in below

Once the site gets created, go to Site Contents on “Site Contents”

Go to ribbon “PERFORMANCE POINT” and click on “Dashboard Designer” as shown below


   It shows window like this, click “open”

Launch the Dashboard Designer as shown below

It will show different types of data sources. choose “Multidimensional” and “Analysis Services” . Click the OK button as shown in figure below

Create a connection string by specifying  Server Name ,Database Name and Cube name as shown below

Note: Some times 'Database' remainder empty. please check my Article for that .
Rename the data source to “pps” save the data source. Right click “PerformancePoint Contents”, New and select Report as shown below
      It shows some different templates as shown below

   choose Data Source you would like to use .choose “pps” .click finish button. Rename the report as “PPS Chart” .

From the Details pane which is on our right hand side, drag and drop measures and dimensions depends on Your requirement ,I drag  “ Student SDAPH“ into our “Bottom Axis” section and drag and drop “Total English, Total Hindi, Total Maths”  from Measures as shown below

Create Dashboard and deploy it:

Create a dashboard and deploy the same to our SharePoint site. To create a Dashboard, right click on “PerformancePoint Contents” and click on “Dashboard” Choose the “2 rows” dashboard page template. Rename your dashboard to “PPS Dashboard”.
In Details pane, expand “Reports” and then PerformancePoint Contents. Drag and drop the “PPS Chart” into our first row and “PPS Grid” into our second row.
