SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform Review

With some of these tools, the technical dependency is much lower​​.

Valuable Features

  • Easy interface for business users
  • Advanced functionality in BI
  • It connects any data sources with SAP Business Objects tool

Improvements to My Organization

There are many tools that help the organization like SAP Lumira, SAP Business Explorer, SAP Design Studio and Dashboard to give you the summary and detailed analysis. With some of these tools, the technical dependency is much lower.

Room for Improvement

The Events feature needs to be improved, and I have already suggested this in the SAP Ideas portal. It is related to BOBJ.

Use of Solution

I've been using it for the last seven years.

Deployment Issues

We have had no issues with the deployment.

Stability Issues

The stability is again dependent on your sizing activity. If you don't have enough hardware and use it a lot, the tool will crash.

Scalability Issues

We have had no issues with scaling it for our needs.

Customer Service and Technical Support

10/10 - technical support is brilliant.

Initial Setup

It's dependent to the client requirement. As I said earlier if sizing is done properly then you will not face any issues. If not, you may face issues if your utilization is high and resources are low.

Implementation Team

I performed multiple implementations and upgrade projects for the BOBJ and BODS tool.


It depends how the customer is utilising the solution.

Other Advice

Business users can learn it very fast because it is easy to operate.
