In hopes of getting a sneak peak at some his BI 2011 session content, I spent some time chatting with Dan Kearnan, Director of SAP Business Intelligence at SAP Americas, about the upcoming release of SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0.
In addition to providing an overview of the improved integration options between SAP applications and the SAP BusinessObjects BI suite expected with the new release, Dan highlighted three key functionality enhancements found within 4.0:
1. An improved end-user experience with a consistent look-and-feel across almost all BI solutions in the SAP BusinessObjects suite
2. A common semantic layer
3. Improved platform: The SAP BusinessObjects enterprise platform itself has been enhanced to be more global-ready, more scalable, and to offer new install options.
For more details surrounding these three enhancements, and other news related to SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0, you can listen to our Q&A here:
