Almost a month ago I posted SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: ASUG BI 2016 Community Survey

We have a few more weeks left, and I would like to share the results as they stand right now. Over the course of 2015, the ASUG BI has offered 71 webcasts (as of November), with over 16K registrants.  Additionally, the ASUG BI community supports three face-to-face conferences including ASUG Annual Conference, SAP TechEd, and ASUG BusinessObjects User Conference.  There is still time to submit your survey today.  Below reflects the 125 results received so far.

So far roadmaps are the top-rated topic, followed by customer stories.

Do you agree or disagree?  Take the survey today

We read every comment made.  So far, some have provided feedback on the BI content at their local chapters – we have passed along the feedback to the relevant chapters.  There has been a comment on some of the technical issues we have experienced; ASUG changed webcast platforms this year to allow members to watch webcasts from mobile devices.

There was a request for more SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence webcasts.  There is a roadmap webcast for Web Intelligence this week.  February 8th there is a Web Intelligence Calculation Changes webcast.  Molson Coors shares how they stack more beer in the fridge in this upcoming January 19th webcast; this solution includes Web Intelligence.

Another member commented “I continue to find the most benefit from customer experience / best practice type information from a user perspective, as that is more closely related to my current role” Another said “The webcasts are terrific, esp. having them available after they occur.”
