SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform Review

A robust solution with pretty direct integration with SAP ERP, but needs better pricing and more dashboarding metrics

What is our primary use case?

We use it for dashboarding. We are using the previous version of this solution.

What is most valuable?

It is stable and robust. It has pretty direct integration with SAP ERP. It is easy to use. 

What needs improvement?

Its price should be better. It is expensive and not cost-effective. It should also be improved in terms of end-user experience. It requires further improvements for usability and ease of use. 

It should have more dashboarding metrics and much faster integration with ERP so that when you double click, you can instantly see the scenario-based result.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for about ten years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have about a hundred users of this solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is all right.

What about the implementation team?

It was a partner who did the installation. It took about one week. You need two people for its deployment.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is not cost-effective. It is expensive.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
