During a recent Reporting & Analytics 2010 research survey, participants were asked what their reporting challenges are primarily related to.

Top responses included (open-ended responses): 

  • Integrating SAP BusinessObjects with BW/BI and R/3
  • User-friendly report delivery
  • SAP BusinessObjects implementation
  • Data cleansing and integration
  • Delivering dashboards for KPIs measurement and performance
  • Difficulty of creating real-time reports
  • Data quality
  • Knowing which tools are best for certain environments and jobs

We also asked respondents to indicate which reporting tools they use (could pick more than one):

  • SAP Business Explorer (SAP BEx) (78%)
  • SAP NetWeaver BW (75%)
  • SAP BEx Analyzer (66%)
  • SAP R/3 (56%)
  • SAP ERP (48%)
  • SAP BusinessObjects (40%) 

Respondents indicating SAP BusinessObjects usage were then asked to identify which tools they use (within the SAP BusinessObjects portfolio); top answers included (could pick more than one): 

  • SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence -48%
  • Xcelcius -34%
  • Crystal -26%
