Let’s Speak BO Webinar: Why Converting Webi Reports to PowerBI is a Bad Idea

Back to Let’s Speak BO Webinars

Tuesday, April 2nd at 10am PT/1pm ET

There is really no way to migrate Web Intelligence reports to PowerBI and conversion is really more about re-creating the report in PowerBI than actually “converting” it.This session will showcase how a group of Web Intelligence Operational Reports were analyzed to determine that the only way they could be re-created in PowerBI was to create them as Paginated reports in Power BI Report builder.

The method of assessment to determine when to use Power Bi Desktop or Paginated Reports will be covered as well as a discussion on why operational reports are often times better left in Web Intelligence.

Back to Let’s Speak BO Webinars

Tuesday, March 5th at 10am PT/1pm ET

Enabling external access is on the rise and with it comes the need for greater security. Most users are familiar with multi-factor authentication for VPN and other applications.

Making a move to multi-factor authentication with BusinessObjects is becoming the more preferred method for signing on. Although possible in earlier versions, BusinessObjects has matured in this area, providing all the files needed for configuring by default in the new BI 4.3 installations.

10:00 – 10:45 AM BusinessObjects Solid for the Next Decade and Beyond – Paul Grill, InfoSol Inc.

When SAP updated their Statement of Direction for BusinessObjects in June 2022, they also announced a revised roadmap for the product that projected out more than 10 years. This included a new release of BusinessObjects after BI 4.3, code named BI 2024, that will run both on-premises and in the cloud and continued evolution and enhancement of both Web Intelligence and Crystal Reports. This session will show and discuss this new roadmap and the key features that have just been released with BI 4.3 SP03 along with what is currently planned for SP04 and beyond.

About 80% of BusinessObjects customers use either PowerBI, Tableau or both. Most use BusinessObjects for BI reporting while using PowerBI/Tableau for data discovery and visualization. This state of co-existence is very much the new normal for organizations using BusinessObjects. This session will explain how the different BI tool can complement each other and how you can integrate them by accessing both Web Intelligence reports and universes from PowerBI and Tableau.
