In May, SAP announced new branding changes that simplify the way we talk about our analytics solutions. (See http://blogs.sap.com/analytics/2012/05/09/understanding-the-recent-branding-changes-for-analytics-solutions-from-sap/) Since then, you’ve seen these changes rolled out across Web content, collateral, and other places where the portfolio and product names are used. Now starting Oct 30, you’ll also see these changes appearing on SAP Support Portal.
The SAP BusinessObjects software portfolio is now known as “analytics solutions from SAP.” Analytics solutions from SAP include products for business intelligence (BI), enterprise information management (EIM), enterprise performance management (EPM), and governance, risk, and compliance (GRC), as well as certain additional analytic applications.
The business intelligence (BI) product names still contain the term “SAP BusinessObjects.” For example:
- SAP BusinessObjects Explorer
However, the products for EIM, EPM, GRC, and new analytic applications now just contain “SAP” in their names.
- SAP Data Services
- SAP Strategy Management
- SAP Global Trade Services
- SAP Sales Analysis for Retail
