Enabling you to make the best of your investments in SAP Analytics

This blog describes offerings that we, the Enablement Team within Product Management SAP Analytics, add to all the other great knowledge assets you find here on the Community or as part of event publications (TechEd, DSAG, ASUG to name but a few).

For our many webinar series, we present hand selected content and bring together people from all continents – customers, partners and SAP employees, all with the same interests and needs. We go deep and wide: With the choice of topics we help you to expend your in-depth solution knowledge and to widen your area of expertise across a number of solutions.

We are often asked what products we cover with our webinars. I’d like to use this blog to list and describe them all, along with our team members.


SAP BusinessObjects Cloud
This is the webinar series with the most sessions. In fact, we have two webinar series for this latest addition to the BusinessObjects Product Family: the Expert Sessions and Virtual Classes. Adrian Paul manages the program.

Adrian is curator and host of these webinars, which we run on a fortnightly base. These webinars cover three different types of sessions (What’s New, Deep Dives and Customer Presentations). Adrian draws from a pool of presenters from across SAP and the world.
Virtual Classes: BI & Planning
The expert webinars are complemented by the shorter Virtual Classes for the two most prominent flavors of our cloud solution: Jacob Stark covers the BI features, and Ravin Angara and Howard Dai focus on Planning features.
These sessions run every month – live and in person – and are masterfully hosted and organized by Majed.


SAP Lumira Discovery & Designer

These webinars cover both the Discovery part (previously known as SAP Lumira) and the Designer (SAP Design Studio).Adrian draws from a pool of presenters from across SAP and the world. The series also features our most innovative partners.


SAP BusinessObjects Predictive Analytics
This webinar series started in March 2015 and was initially triggered by the release of SAP Predictive Analytics 2.0 – which seems such a long time ago, with plenty of 3.x news to share! Helena Chong is your master of ceremony.
We offer to different types: the Solution Expert Webinars focus on the solution SAP Predictive Analytics. I am very excited about the popularity of the Data Science Webinars, which describes the science, not a software. Our Chief Data Scientist Paul Pallath is the master mind behind this!


SAP Enterprise Performance Management, including Analysis Office

This webinar series focuses on the on-prem offerings within the EPM space. Heather Do passionately manages this space.
If you came here to learn more about our cloud based planning features, please check the SAP BusinessObjects Cloud series.


SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise, aka BI
Heather takes this popular webinar series into its 3rd season. The same presenters that you know from previous years will again share tips, tricks and their experience to support you in your upgrade and migration projects.


Rotating Topics

Interested? Here’s how to not miss a webinar!

We usually open up for registration about a week before the actual webinar, and update the schedules on our community pages accordingly. (some webinars will be open for registration earlier). Once you registered for a webinar, we’ll send you invites for other webinars for the same solution.


Please! Reach out to us if you have any feedback on the webinars. Do that either through direct messaging here on SCN, or in reply to event invitations, that you might receive.

Thank you!

I¹d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who’s attending our webinars and engaging with us! Your feedback is motivation to do more, your attendance encourages us to increase our offering!

Of course, all this wouldn’t be possible without a great collaboration team across all sorts of team inside SAP, reaching from development to support, marketing and more. A gratifying experience!

Cheers, and hoping to see you soon in a webinar!
