Managements want to get rid of a lot of things but at the end of the day some other guys are responsible for the seamless replacement and migration of those things :).. BO lets you set your reporting layer(Universe in BO World) on ANY data model with any complexity,…

Best on publication functionality especially if you dont schedule the publication:-). it doesnt work since we are on 4.1 SP5 namely. Tech Support is really sick I agree. If you have a major problem, be ready to discuss to death with the support engineer over a ticket.

It is awkward to install and use BO in a project at school for a project. I would have preferred a simpler and smarter BI solution. BO is a BI SUITE tailored for large enterprises busy with diverse tasks and problems , which are probably irrelevant for school projects. I…
