Journey to Mobile BI – Meet ASUG SAP d-code Speaker Peter Chen
Continuing with the Meet the Speaker ASUG SAP d-code speaker series I am pleased to introduce Peter Chen of Deloitte
He is presenting on session EA114 Practical Lessons from Deloitte Global’s Successful Mobile BI Launch
From the abstract:
Deloitte Global began their mobile BI journey in late 2012, from prototyping, SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.0 upgrade, mobile dashboard development, security evaluation and LDAP authentication, mobile app customization and deployment, to a successful launch. Practical lessons were learned along the way and are ready to be shared.

After completing the B.Sc degree in Beijing University, I came to the United States for graduate study. Briefly studied in Georgia Tech, before completing the Ph.D. in biomedical research from Northwestern University, a post-doc program at University of Chicago, and Computer Career Program at DePaul University.
What are some fun facts about Peter?
I am a loyal 49ers fan who recently visited the 49ers’ brand new stadium in Santa Clara.
On the subject of superstition in sports: My arrival had apparently brought good lucks to his favorite teams:
1) Studied in Georgia Tech in 1990 – coincided with the Yellow Jackets’ only final 4 appearance and football National championship.
2) I arrived in Chicago in 91, when the Chicago Bulls started their historic 6-peat.
3) I visited SF the first time in 94, when the 49ners overcame the Cowboys that had beaten them the previous 2 years.
I am looking forward to his ASUG Mobile BI session at SAP d-code Las Vegas. For a complete list of ASUG sessions, click this link.
