SQL Server features that are part of the Microsoft Business Intelligence platform include Analysis Services, Integration Services, Master Data Services, Reporting Services, and several client applications used for creating or working with analytical data. This section of the SQL Server Setup documentation explains how to install these features.
Analysis Services and Reporting Services can be installed as standalone servers, in scale-out configurations, or as shared service applications in a SharePoint farm. Installing the services in a farm enables BI features that are only available in SharePoint, including Power Pivot for SharePoint and Power View, the Reporting Services ad hoc interactive report designer that runs on Power Pivot or Analysis Services tabular model databases.
