At SAP TechEd Las Vegas, Thierry Audas and Dan Kearnan discussed the SAP BusinessObjects BI roadmap for the coming months. Per Audas and Kearnan, “The suite of SAP BusinessObjects BI solutions is the recommended and strategic BI front-end offering for SAP NetWeaver BW and other data sources.”

Here are some highlights of the roadmap:

Q4 2010

  • SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 (Aurora)
  • SAP BusinessObjects Analysis, edition for Microsoft Office (formerly known as Pioneer or Advanced Analysis), which is available now

2011 and Beyond

  • New Web application design capabilities for SAP NetWeaver BW (planned for SAP BusinessObjects 4.1)
  • Unified Web-based analysis client for relational and OLAP sources

According to Audas and Kearnan, “SAP recommends transitioning in a phased approach starting now with SAP BusinessObjects Analysis and continuing with SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0.”
