SAP Preps 'Huge' BI Upgrade

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

SAP is gearing up to launch Business Objects 4.0, its biggest business intelligence release in roughly three years, later this month at an event in New York.

"This release is huge," said Dave Weisbeck, senior vice president of BI and EIM (enterprise information management) solution management. "Every single tool has had some major upgrades. There's not a single place we haven't touched."

But the release is a milestone in another way as well, as it spells the retirement of the suite's well-liked Desktop Intelligence component, also known as DeskI. That decision is not going over well with some customers.

However, those who upgrade to Business Objects 4.0 will get tighter integration of SAP's BI tools with its EIM product line. The release's goal is to cut down on the amount of time and effort customers spend on the process of assembling, transforming, modeling and ultimately delivering information to users, Weisbeck said.
