Welcome – Prepackaged Business Objects Applications

Hello and welcome to our blog. I am a founder and Chief Business Intelligence Architect at SmartDataApplications. Our company develops prepackaged Business Object’s applications that extract and present data from small to midsize ERP systems. We specifically choose ERP systems in the Medical Device, Pharma, and Manufacturing Fields. To learn more about our company goto

Our Prepackaged applications use the following Business Objects products: Web Intelligence, Xcelisus, Explorer, BO Mobile, and BODS.

Because our “RapidMarts” include many Business Objects products, our blog will discuss:

  • Web Intelligence and Dashboard Development
  • Business Objects Enterprise Installation, Configuration, and Migrations
  • ETL and Datawarehousing of the underlying ERP data
  • Medical Device and Pharma ERP Systems
  • CAPA, Compliance, and QA ERP systems and building “RapidMarts” extracting data from these Apps
  • Migration Assessments

In our first Blog we will be discussing “Migration Assessments”, What they should include, how long should they take, and what are the next steps.

Stay Tuned…..
