Introducing Real World BI Stories
We’re excited to announce the launch of a second feature, with the first one being Dear aBI.
Sometimes, lessons are best told in story format, which is why we launched Real World BI Stories. On the community we do a good job of telling the story about SAP BusinessObjects solutions but in the field, the story gets much more complex and variable. There is a complex interplay of resource, political, technical, process, and other factors that make for compelling stories, many parts of which you’ll likely be able to identify with and relate to.
The goal for providing a platform to tell these stories is to share those lessons learned by their respective authors, but also to spark further dialog about the particular story. Would you have done anything differently? Do you have a similar experience and if so, what are the details and what are the lessons you learned?
To kick off this series, SAP Mentor Simon To shares his tale of upgrading from SAP BusinessObjects XI Release 2 to XI 3.1 with only 1.5 months to complete. Real World BI Stories: Upgrade or Else in his first-hand account.
