BusinessObjects Universe Optimization and Best Practices

What does poor BusinessObjects Universe design do to your reporting solution?  The list is long including: poor performance, increased complexity, limited usability, an understatement of the value and power of your BusinessObjects investment, and many more limitations. 

For many years I worked as a consultant and trainer for BusinessObjects and beat the drum of “good universe design.”  Those that heard it and evangelized within their own organizations realized they just produced a competitive advantage over those that did not.  Many of us have been trying to carry this message back to our organizations with limited success. 

SAP Enterprise Support is now offering a new way to carry this message forward through the Expert Guided Implementation (EGI) for “Relational Universe Design and Best Practices.”  The pilot session for N. America is occuring on CW13 (or March 27 – 29).  Yes, it’s a pilot session which means that it does NOT count against your 5 day Enterprise Support contingent for 2012.  For those of you less than familiar with what that means please request to speak to the Support Advisor Center (via the Customer Interaction Center @ 800-677-7271) for more details.  In any case, this 3 day session is at no additional charge to customers with SAP Enterprise Support.

Go to the SAP Service Marketplace to sign up today:
