An awful lot of hype surrounds the pending release of SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0, and not all of it has to do strictly with new software functions.
There’s a sense from non-SAP BusinessObjects customers that 4.0 will be a golden opportunity for SAP to show it can accommodate folks who don’t run on the SAP stack.
Mico Yuk, director of sales and business development at Benchmarkers Business Intelligence and a speaker at our upcoming Xcelsius Bootcamps, sent up a lightning rod with her piece for ASUG News about the 4.0 release and what it means for all SAP customers. The comments about the article are well worth reading, too.
Meanwhile, over on the BusinessObjects Expert site, I previously discussed whether BI 4.0 is a signal that the BusinessObjects brand is waning.
Ultimately, the 4.0 release will be judged on how well it sells and performs. With all of this in mind, take a moment to answer our poll below about where you stand with BusinessObjects 4.0.
