ASUG SAP TechEd && d-code Speaker Profile Manish Umarwardia – BW 7.40 LSA++ Curro Ergo Sum


Continuing the ASUG SAP TechEd && d-code meet the speaker series (Las Vegas), please meet ASUG SAP TechEd d-code speaker Manish Umarwardia.  His speaker profile says “Mr. Umarwadia consults at leading CPG companies. His BI experience encompasses architecture & landscape design, data acquisition, data warehousing & modeling, information delivery, data mining and performance tuning. “


His session is DMM236 Extending the Reach of LSA++ Using the New SAP BW 7.40 Artifacts

I asked him the following:

Please tell us about your session:

This session highlights an actual use case of leveraging the new modeling and data acquisition options available with SAP Business Warehouse 7.40 SP5. We briefly examine the evolution of LSA to LSA++ and then explain how using Open ODS views, operational data provisioning, and the new composite provider opens up creative ways of extending LSA++.

Please tell us about yourself:

My favorite hobby is running and actually my motto is the Latin phrase “Curro Ergo Sum” (I run therefore I am). After five marathons, I no longer run long distance, electing to “save my miles and knees” for continuing to run injury free and for a long time.

Circa 1997, a close friend working for SAP America overcame my resistance to a career in SAP with the argument that it’s a lot easier teaching SAP to folks with a solid business and process background than vice versa.

What do you hope attendees take away from your session?

I am hoping that attendees to my session walk away excited about SAP’s ongoing commitment to SAP Business Warehouse (“BW is not going away”) and new and creative ways for addressing some age-old pain points in the data warehousing area with BW 7.40.

Manish works for Tek-Link.  Tek-Link co-presented with Molex last week on a very successful and popular topic, BW Workspaces last week.  Tek-Link gave a webcast on LSA++ last year (logon required) and it was very popular

Manish has presented for ASUG before on BW topics, BusinessObjects Explorer, Analysis for OLAP and more.
