Well, it’s that time of year again to make lists and check them twice, trying to find out who’s been naughty or nice. Of course, all the BI Expert team has been very nice. However, several of our authors deserve some extra credit for writing one (or two!) of the top 10 articles for the second half of 2010. (You may recall I reviewed the top articles for the first part of the year in my blog “Top 10 Articles on BI Expert for First Half of 2010”)

I was impressed again with the range of articles, spanning the years covered in the knowledgebase as well as a variety of topics, from BEx, to SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence, to process chains, to SAP BusinessObjects Planning and Consolidation (or BPC, as many like to say).

Here’s a look at the list. To m ake things more interesting, at the bottom of the list you can vote for your favorite article.
