Influence Council Update and Working Meeting: SAP BusinessObjects Explorer & Casual User


This ASUG Influence Council is for SAP BusinessObjects customers who want to extend the reach of business intelligence (BI) to all information workers. While most BI tools serve the needs of power users, these users only represent a small percentage of the information workers, usually less than 10%. The vast majority of users, those we call casual users, require different tools. The goal of this business council is to have an open dialog about the best ways to allow more and more casual users to quickly access relevant information and make fact-based business decisions. We will have an open dialog about current and future developments of SAP BusinessObjects Explorer. We will also discuss the evolution of this software (exploration views) and validate the usability and mobility aspect with the team.

Join Cathy Kennedy and SAP’s Mani Srinivasan for this session

    Thanks Tammy!  I think that video is going to be around forever!  😆

    Good news…the Customer Chair for the re-launched Dashboarding and Visualization Influence Council will also be at the session, too. Come and meet Sandy Brotje from the Cleveland Clinic!  Sandy, Scott Leaver, Matt Lloyd and myself will all be available to take questions about how to put your name in for the Council.

    Looking forward to a great Annual Conference!
