The 
CA Business Intelligence
 integration with 
CA Performance Management
 offers access to 
CA Business Intelligence
 reports and dashboards through
Performance Center
.
CA Business Intelligence
 (CABI) reports for 
CA Performance Management
 offer portable graphical representations of 
CA Performance Management
 performance metrics. To run a 
CA Business Intelligence
 report for 
CA Performance Management
, install the 
CA Business Intelligence
 JasperReports Server. 
CA Performance Management
  content is delivered through a Connector for the 
CA Business Intelligence
 JasperReports Server.
To configure a standalone CABI integration for the 
CA Performance Management
 3.1 GA release, see Install CABI Reports for CA Performance Management 3.1.
For the latest instructions applicable to the Unified Dashboards and Reporting for Infrastructure Management solution, see the documentation: Install CA Business Intelligence Reports and Dashboards. You must have
CA Performance Management
3.1.x installed to use the Unified Dashboards and Reporting for Infrastructure Management solution.
Run and access reports that are based on your 
CA Performance Management
 product privileges. For more information, see CA Business Intelligence Reports.
With the Unified Dashboards and Reporting for Infrastructure Management solution, you can view 
CA Business Intelligence
 dashboards in
Performance Center
. Use these dashboards to evaluate performance metrics including high-level representations of your sites and their monitored devices. For more information, see CA Business Intelligence Dashboards.
CA Performance Management
 integrates with 
CA Business Intelligence
 in two ways:
  • CA Performance Management
     connects to a standalone 
    CA Business Intelligence
     instance. In this deployment, 
    CA Business Intelligence
     contains only 
    CA Performance Management
     data.
  • The 
    Unified Dashboards and Reporting for Infrastructure Management
     solution lets you integrate a single instance of 
    CA Business Intelligence
     with the following products:
    • CA Performance Management
    • CA Unified Infrastructure Management
    • CA Spectrum
    • CA Service Operations Insight
Sharing a single instance of
CA Business Intelligence
 reduces the number of 
CA Business Intelligence
 instances that you are required to deploy and maintain. Sharing 
CA Business Intelligence
 also enables dashboards that span multiple products, giving you a new level of insight. For more information, see Unified Dashboards and Reporting for Infrastructure Management.
