9:00 – BusinessObjects Co-Existence: The New Reality – Paul Grill, InfoSol

More than 50% of existing BusinessObjects customers use at least one other BI tool in addition to the tools in BusinessObjects. Using the best tool for the job makes a lot of sense in today’s competitive and fast-changing business landscape and so this co-existence of different BI tools has become a reality. The most popular BI tool used with BusinessObjects is Tableau followed by Microsoft’s PowerBI. This session will talk about different use cases for using these tools with BusinessObjects as well as options for integrating them in order to leverage your BusinessObjects investment

10:00 – The Future of BusinessObjects Dashboards – Paul Grill, InfoSol

Business Intelligence Dashboards remain the dominant way we deliver Business Intelligence applications. While a picture speaks a thousand words, a dashboard delivers a thousand visual insights. For the longest time, BusinessObjects Dashboards (Xcelsius) dominated and is still prevalent with its HTML5 runtime. Web Intelligence is improving its dashboard capabilities with each new service pack and SAP is looking to develop new dashboard solutions in the cloud while many BusinessObjects customers have turned to Tableau, PowerBI and other BI data visualizations. BusinessObjects customers have a lot of choices and this session will discuss the pros and cons of each to help you both better understand and see the possibilities.
