ASUG Influence Council for online and in-product education for the BI Suite – Closing Loop, Relaunch

The ASUG Influence Council for online and in-product education for the BI Suite has been meeting for past 3 years, with this council’s support, says SAP’s Steve Paxian, has grown to over 1200 individual tutorials (most of them in both interactive and video versions) that have been viewed almost 2 million times just in the past year. This project, to provide free online BI tutorials, has been very successful and it will be continued by SAP.

Join ASUG on January 27th to highlight this council’s accomplishments, close this council, and investigate starting a new council for BI enablement topics.

Many of these tutorials are built into the products, such as Design Studio:

Clicking the More on the Design Studio front page takes you to Official Product Tutorials – SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio 1.x

The same goes for Crystal Reports 2013:

They are short tutorials that help you get moving on your BI journey.  I have used them for Lumira, Design Studio and IOMS.

Using Lumira, I looked at the # of views on the SCN tutorials (they are also posted separately via a Youtube channel):


I was lazy and used the related visualizations in Lumira to develop the charts.

What is the most viewed product with the tutorials?

See below:


Web Intelligence, then the Information Design Tool are the top viewed tutorials.  See the shared SAP Lumira Cloud visualization here.
