Corporate Performance Management Average8.1

Please provide some examples of things that SAP Business Objects does particularly well.

  • I would score an 8 if reporting on a relational databaseperformance is good and the product works well.
  • Features and options are good. It can cater to many different use cases, depending on end-user requirements.
  • The suite contains multiple tools – OLAP, Εξερευνητής, Οι πίνακες ελέγχου. It’s highly versatile with a great variety of tool-sets. It doesn’t force people to do things one way using a single tool.
  • Ωστόσο, continuing problems in reporting against an OLAP database reduce the overall score to a 6.

Please provide some examples of areas where SAP Business Objects has room for improvement.

  • BW / Business Objects integration: SAP has more work to do here. Εκδοχή 4.0 has removed major obstacles in stability, but we still have a lot of performance issues. The Business Objects features have been limited by the BW background. I would give this a score of 5 overall.
  • SAP is pushing an in-memory database solutionHANA. SAP resources are focused on moving BW to HANA database. I believe BO performance will improve significantly as a result of this. We want to re-evaluate our data warehousing strategy, middle of next year. We are going on two paths currently. We want to take a step back and re-evaluate if SAP has a better solution.
  • Dashboard tool sub-standard relative to Tableau. Takes weeks to get working vs. days in Tableau to build.
  • Mobile compatibility is far ahead in Tableau.
  • From the admin perspective, Business Objects is not fine tuned out of the box.
  • Rolling out support packages is not disciplined -sometimes every 2 weeks, sometimes every 2 months.
  • No good alerting and monitoring systems.
  • No handshake to BW – π.χ.. send something on a trigger basis from another system to Business Objects.

What positive or negative impact (i.e. Return on Investment or ROI) has SAP Business Objects had on your overall business objectives?

  • Saleshelps track revenue, shipments, pay commissions to reps.
  • Operationsusability of tool is goodone common repository for every body to see reports. This really is a one-stop-shop for reporting.
  • Inter-operability of analysis views.

On a scale of 1-10, how likely are you to renew your use of SAP Business Objects? Why do you give it this rating?

We will likely make this decision at the end of next year. We have 2 paths. We have to determine how we consolidate our various data warehouses, and what are the enterprise promoted tools.

Most of the operations reports are in the WebI ad-hoc reporting tool, and we don’t have any complaints about them.
