Thanks for your help.

Its not clear to me what you're asking - could you clarify a little please? Are you looking to generate charts and graphs or something else and what does powerpoint have to do with your requirement? – Ryan Oct 24 '11 at 10:13
Thanks for your answer. Yes i definetely want to generate charts and graphs in/with SharePoint based on datasets. I read somewhere that PowerPivot (not Powerpoint) can be a solution but i'm not sure of that. – raminou Oct 24 '11 at 11:18
have you tried the charts web part? – David Lozzi Oct 24 '11 at 12:13
Oh - PowerPivot! I read PowerPoint, me bad ;) – Ryan Oct 24 '11 at 13:07
Any of these any good? – Ryan Oct 24 '11 at 13:07

In addition to those already mentioned, you can use Excel Services REST API to generate graphs that are then shown in you page. This is actually a surprisingly powerful feature that doesn't seem to get a lot of publicity.

Thanks SPDoctor. I'm going to look on this new solution! – raminou Oct 27 '11 at 7:33

Option 1 is Excel Web Part (Enterprise license) Option 2 is Charts Web Part (also Enterprise license) Option 3 are BI components: PowerPivot or PerformancePoint (Enterprise license)

all other options are 3rd party tools.
