Accurate and meaningful reporting is critical to the successful operation of any large enterprise, and the City of Chicago — the third largest city in the US, with a population of nearly 3 million and nearly 40 million visitors each year — is no different. To help vital services such as 311, 911, fire, and police operate at peak efficiency, and to help save taxpayer dollars with streamlined W2, PO, and invoicing processes, the City of Chicago decided to migrate from its existing reporting solution, SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1, to SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) 4.1

Attend this webinar and learn how the City of Chicago optimizes their resources, implements real backup and disaster recovery, boosts LCM, maximizes auditing capabilities and prepares an optimized, secure migration to SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.1, including how it:

  • Assesses the existing deployment to gain a better understanding of the environment and performs cleanups to streamline the migration, already reduced the number of reports by 30,000 (more to be reduced)
  • Prepares to migrate from SAP BusinessObjects XI 3.1 to SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.1, including moving over 100,000 reports and 100 production universes
  • Implements an incremental backup approach and an effective disaster and recovery strategy
  • Optimizes its SAP BusinessObjects deployment to save time and taxpayer money
