APOS Freemium Offer
During the session with Patrick, we heard mention of the APOS BI Upgrade Freemium Offer, which bundles our UNX Universe adoption technology with an automated inventory of your BI system content.
To benefit from the extended lifespan of SAP BusinessObjects, you will need to convert your universes if you haven’t already, as UNV universes will no longer be supported. This conversion process can be time- and labor-intensive, so it makes sense to take advantage of this offer to automate the process.
