Microsoft Cost-Cutting Hits Enterprise Apps

This isn't what we wanted to hear from Redmond about how cost-cutting would affect Microsoft's product offerings. Apparently PerformancePoint Server is up for the chop -- more specifically, it'll be folded into SharePoint -- in the months to come.

OK, so maybe PerformancePoint isn't a massive moneymaker (we don't know) and folding its capabilities into SharePoint probably makes sense. But on a broader scale, Microsoft, we wish you'd leave the enterprise stuff alone and look for efficiencies elsewhere. After all, the server and tools business is the one that's still raking in the bucks for you and for the channel.
