A data source object is one of the first class object (FCO) types in PerformancePoint Services. Data sources are stored in a SharePoint document library (by default, the PerformancePoint Data Connections Library), but other FCOs are stored in a SharePoint list.

A supported development scenario for PerformancePoint Services is to create a custom tabular data source. For more information, see PerformancePoint Services in SharePoint 2013.
