Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Till the good is better and the better is best!” True story – My Dad’s eighth grade teacher, Mrs. Kurchigator, was well known in my family for having passed on that bit of wisdom. It was such a big thing in my family that my musical brother wrote a “Good, better, best” song. As with anything we do, we can do it at the basic level or we can try and get the most out of it. This session is “just” a tips and tricks for IDT session, but if we listen close, there might be a few pearls that will make us use IDT better. And that’s the point, isn’t it?

Let’s Speak BO Webinar: BusinessObjects as Part of BI Strategy for the Next Decade

Back to Let’s Speak BO Webinars

March 1st, 2022 at 10AM PT/11AM AZ/1PM ET

As the world continues to navigate a global pandemic that started well over a year ago, the importance and significance of Business Intelligence has never been more critical.

Yet, at the same time, most organizations find themselves in a situation where time, resources and budget have never been tighter. As a result, making better and more use of the BI applications in place makes a lot of sense. For many, that means leveraging BusinessObjects as it remains the most widely used BI suite in the world today.
In addition, between Web Intelligence and Crystal Reports, it offers the best BI reporting platform available.

While tools like Tableau and PowerBI are gaining larger market share in the BI space, they are used for data discovery and data visualization and not designed for BI reporting.
It is for this reason, that most organizations who have adopted these tools, retain BusinessObjects for BI reporting.

This session will both discuss and show real customer case studies of how existing BusinessObjects are adapting to the new co-existence norm and how companies, new to BI, are adopting BusinessObjects as part of their new BI strategy for the next decade.
