SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform Review

The Web Intelligence reports are the most valuable feature because they have the flexibility for detailed data analysis.

Valuable Features

  • Web Intelligence reports because they have flexibility for detailed data analysis
  • Dashboard designer for managerial reports
  • OLAP Analysis reports for ad-hoc analysis.

Improvements to My Organization

We were able to combine data from two different sources and compare and identify data discrepancies thereby enabling us to correct the data.

Room for Improvement

It needs to become more user friendly. Currently, it is very cumbersome to use.

Use of Solution

I've been using it for seven years.

Deployment Issues

We have no issues with the deployment.

Stability Issues

Some database issues were encountered, but SAP has vastly improved on technical support for Business Objects over the last three to four years.

Scalability Issues

We've been able to scale it for our needs.

Customer Service and Technical Support

It's good, and around three to four years ago, SAP’s technical support was not up to the mark. Now SAP it is reliable and fast.

Initial Setup

It's complex and has technical challenges.

Implementation Team

We achieved the implementation in-house with hard work and technical support.

Other Solutions Considered

We went with it because my organization already had SAP deployed as the corporate ERP.

Other Advice

Go ahead with it -- it’s a good product.
