In this presentation, you’ll learn about the deployment approach, data and universe preparation, and impact self-service data visualization has had in its first year post go-live.

January 25 – How Honeywell Aerospace went from Whiteboard to Dashboard in Eight Weeks (Customer Story)

In the past, Honeywell Aerospace did not have a common tool to provide a view of how CSMs were progressing toward targets in a given fiscal quarter. To get this information, they had to manually execute various reports to get data out of SAP solutions and SFDC and then merge it all together. This session will walk you through how the Honeywell Aerospace BI team developed a CSM standard-work tool, from whiteboard to dashboard, in just eight weeks.

January 26 – Build It and They Will Come, But Do They Know Where and What It Means? South Carolina Enterprise Information Systems

SCEIS (South Carolina Enterprise Information Systems) has built over 200 reports in many areas for enterprise and individual needs. The problem is that users do not know where the reports are located, which reports to use for what situations or what to do with the data in the reports. As a solution, Reporting Links dashboard with direct links to each report were built, along with a searchable tool using SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio for word searches to help locate reports and tutorials loaded into SAP BusinessObjects to show the purpose of the reports and its data.


I hope you enjoy these session.
