What does it mean? BI4.1
SAP says BI4.1 is “one suite for all insight, one place for all information, one standard for Enterprise BI”. They said they had a fast successful ramp-up. They recommend customers move towards it for reliable, stable, “full of innovation”.
One suite that is connected better, as it connects to BW, Hadoop, any source .
It is one standard for BI – well managed, organized, and trusted
