As time goes by, there are some interesting and generally applicable things we learn that we think are important enough to share but aren’t big enough for their own presentation. This presentation will introduce some new things we’ve come up against lately such as relatively new requirements for SSL in Chrome, automated bulk users/groups upload, reporting on which reports use Free-hand SQL, issues found in Free hand SQL reports during migration and more (there’s always more…). Looking forward to seeing you there and exchanging your unusual finds as well.

For the last 3 years at our yearly BI convention at IBIS, we have put together a list of disparate lessons learned.  There are always some small things we pick up throughout the year that don’t warrant their own session that make it into our mash up here.  This presentation is a sneak peek into some of the items gathered up so far along with some of our favorites from the recent past.  We will be highlighting weird bugs, out-of-the-box fixes and interesting applications we find worthy of sharing to make the good better and the better best!

Let’s Speak BO Webinar: Archiving and Retrieving Scheduled Instances

Without limits on folders, copies of scheduled report results (instances) are saved to the repository forever. Even with limits, many BusinessObjects environments are experiencing instance overload that can reduce performance and index time. When migrating to a new version these instances can take a migration job from simple and quick to complex and slow. In this presentation we will walk through the steps to archive instances that will allow you to still retrieve an instance when needed. If you have a pesky instance problem, or want a way to avoid developing one, join us with your questions, input and shared experience.
