I need to populate data from a web service and show the result in an analytic chart using PerformancePoint Dashboard Designer.

I came across this SDK to customize our own data source provider and custom report. I tried to change the report type as below.

reportview.TypeName = ReportViewNames.OLAPGrid;
reportview.SubTypeId = ReportViewNames.OLAPGrid;

But I don't get the desired result. How can I render dataset values as an analytic chart? Let me know if this is even possible or not?

Update - To be more clear about my requirement. I just want to get data from web service and show it in BI Dashboard analytic reports. I tried to customize SDK to customize datasource provider and I was able to set my custom data provider. After this I need to populate data with the ReportView. There are many options with ReportViewName but I didn't was not able to bind this data with OLAPGrid. Can anyone show me any link/provide more information on this.

Have you found the answer to this that you can provide? Or can you edit the question with any more information? Thanks! – Alex Angas Jun 1 '11 at 5:07

PerformancePoint analytic reports only consume OLAP data (i.e. from SSAS or PowerPivot).

Agree !! There one more way, I haven't tried, but can be a good solution; using Power Pivot as stating and also to build cubes, read the date webservice into PowerPivot, build the cube and design the Reports in Performance Point – Vamsi Jun 2 '11 at 16:01
