Example text

When the calculation takes minutes or even hours, the ramifications are obvious. The following section introduces you to Excel Services and how it can help address these needs. What Is Excel Ser vices? Excel Services is a new server-side technology that is shipping in Microsoft Office 2007. It is not a product onto itself, but rather an integrated set of features that is part of the new Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (more on this product in the next section). At its core, Excel Services enables you to calculate workbooks authored in the Excel client on a server, and distribute the updated results through either a browser-based interface or a programmatic interface in the form of web services.

For now, it is important to understand that Excel Services administration is an integral part of Office SharePoint Server integration, and not a separate solution. With that said, there are numerous settings that are specific to managing Excel Services functionality, which this book covers in depth as well. The key to Office SharePoint Server is that all the capabilities are completely integrated into a single product. Though you can use it as a document management system or as a portal, the real strength is building solutions and applications that leverage all this functionality in an integrated way.

As outlined, the needs for server-side workbook calculations are real and many. In this first release of Excel Services, a number of these needs are met. But there are many more needs and scenarios for serverside workbook calculation and management that are not solved by this version of Excel Services. A few of these are worth calling out to further define what Excel Services is by describing what it is not. Although the version of Excel Services shipped with Office 2007 does not support functionality listed here, this may change in future versions.
