The SAP Community Network (SCN) provides you with access to SAP customers, partners and internal experts. With about 2 million members, there is no doubt that SCN is no longer a “best kept secret” but the place where the SAP ecosystem comes together to connect, as well as find and share information to impact business change positively and find the tools to increase financial performance.
In regards to Business Intelligence in particular, the SAP BusinessObjects Community (BOC.SAP.COM) should be your first stop to evaluate, get answers to questions, and collaborate with your peers.
In the recent SAP INSIDER article “Increase the Impact of Your BI Investment”, SAP’s Steve Graham provides more background and useful information on how you can leverage the SAP ecosystem to your business advantage.
Here some O-Tones from the article:
“There’s a great deal of information available through the SAP BusinessObjects community on how companies can solve just about any kind of problem they face. It’s amazing that it’s all available for free.” – SAP Consultant
“Reading what other customers said about these [SAP BusinessObjects portfolio] products gave me confidence that the products would work as promised. It’s uncensored, so we could trust the information and move ahead with confidence.” – IT Studies Manager, Cable and Wire Manufacturer
“We wanted technical information, step-by-step instructions on how to get [SAP BusinessObjects solutions and SAP ERP] to work together, and objective information about what works and what doesn’t. Our partner pointed us to trusted resources on the SAP BusinessObjects community that gave us just what we needed to make informed decisions and implement the software successfully.” – Managing Director, Office Supplies Manufacturer
“The real value of business intelligence (BI) software lies not only within the tools themselves, but in how the tools are used. Driving business process change – that is, truly altering and improving how your business operates – requires the best and most appropriate tools and the right mix of skills and knowledge to use them.” Learn more in the full SAP INSIDER article here!
