Greetings All,

Hopefully by now you have gotten a chance to read James Rapp’s Blog on the new BI Pattern Books and reviewed the Patterns themselves.  If you haven’t make sure you hop over there before you read another word.

The Patterns

http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/SAP+Business+Intelligence+Platform+Pattern+Books

Ok – so now that you have read about them are you going to use them? I know the answer to that is an emphatic YES! You won’t begin another BI4 implementation without them.  If you do and we find out we may have a Tony Soprano type moment to discuss. But seriously if you are going to Cooking school at Le Cordon Bleu wouldn’t you check out the recipes of the Head Chef before jaunting out to develop your own? That is what the Pattern Books are and even if the recipe isn’t exact for you the tips and tricks you will get will make your BI4 a success Top Chef Style.

James didn’t trumpet the team fully on this but I am not so bashful.  The original Pattern Books were developed with over 3000 hours of blood,sweat, tears ( testing, benchmarking, optimizing) with some of the best and brightest from SAP Solutions Management, Development, Pre-Sales, Knowledge Management, Infrastructure, Consulting, SCN, and of course Active Global Support.  The type of peole that we can find plenty of other work to do but we committed them to this project because we believe it has value to the ecosystem.

Phase II is coming and while we have our ideas on what is to come next we want your input. 

  • What would you like to see in the Pattern Books?
  • What topics would make your life easier?
  • What else can we do to ensure successful implementations?

Thanks again for listening and YES we want your feedback so Comments / Tweets / Shout Outs welcome.
