Reportapalooza Challenge Check in!

And Reportapalooza continues! Two weeks ago I wrote my first blog post about this exciting SAP BusinessObjects virtual competition. Since then, THANKS to YOU, I won Challenge #1 with my Coffee Consumption Calculator.  I can’t thank everyone enough for the overwhelming support and feedback  that I received! I am cooking something up in the form of a free  giveaway, to show my appreciation, once the competition ends for all of  you.

The bad news? I did not fare as well in Challenge #3, “Lessons from a Reporting Maestro”, but a huge CONGRATS to the winner Brian Durning (ASUG Crystal Reports SIG Chair). He did an awesome job, including,  providing some direction on my beginner video (along with my colleague  and Crystal Reports Guru, Mike Garrett).

So what’s next? Below is a quick review of the past and upcoming Reportapalooza events:

So what’s Challenge #2? Many folks have asked me about getting involved with Reportapalooza not realizing that this is exactly what the “Report Hero” challenge is all about. It’s simple, submit your heroic experience with SAP Crystal Reports or Dashboards by October 8th,  2010, and you may become the next superstar! Not only can you register  to win prizes, (I was shocked to see that 3 of my twitter friends won  $25 ITunes gift cards for Challenge #1!) but if chosen, your story will  be turned into a collectible music poster and highlighted in the competition and community.

My advice? Don’t walk, Run to submit your story NOW. If you are an SAP BusinessObjects report writer/developer or consumer  this is a no brainer! It takes 5 minutes to submit your short story, so  do it now! In addition, we will feature the winning story on our blog as  well.

Thanks again for all the great support!!

  • That must have been fun, Mico.  I was on vacation while all this was happening.  Anyway, I have given up having coffee at work.  Coffee is reserved now for weekend and holiday mornings – makes it all the more special.
