Day 2 of SAPPHIRE/ASUG Conference: BusinessObjects DataServices – a crowded session + other great sessions…

Today I attended a technical session on Universes/Common Semantic Layer.  Much of the session seemed geared towards the work that Basis-type people would do; the presenter even showed SQL code.

The next session I attended was given by Jay Roble and Trevor Dennison, General Mills,  and their experiences with BusinessObjects Data Services.  They said their experience with this tool was they missed the CTS+ tool!  It was a great session, full of lessons learned.  The room was packed.

In the afternoon, I attended Coca Cola’s Workflow session.  In this session, Dominicus Van Asten presented excellent suggestions for moving your Workflows into production.  I loved how he said that incorrect master data is the number one source of problems with workflow in production.  How true.

The last session of the day was a presentation on Union Pacific’s experience with the Universal Worklist.  In this session, Justin Snyder presented detailed slides of how they implemented the universal worklist and went from 6 clicks for travel approval down to one!  He provided detailed screen shots of how they renamed buttons, how the workflow task links to the UWL, and spent a great deal of time after the session answering everyone’s questions.

Additionally, I have spoken with other SAP customers about their conference experience, click here to see!
