The SAP BI Roadmap: Perceptions, Challenges, and Opportunities for SAP Customers

Based on a survey of more than 300 SAP customers and consultants, the report finds that technical challenges rank ahead of budget, staffing, and understanding of BI applications when it comes to planning and executing an SAP BI project.

The report also found that:

  • Only 15% of SAP customers track the ROI of their BI initiatives
  • More than half of respondents (62%) say their end users do not have the skills necessary to get the most out of SAP BusinessObjects applications
  • While most respondents (62%) say they do not have enough information about the SAP BI roadmap, a large majority are able to correctly identify the primary function of each application on the roadmap
  • Almost half of respondents (44.5%) say gathering requirements for a BI project is “difficult” or “extremely difficult”
  • Almost a quarter of respondents (24.1%) did not believe their consultants were capable of recommending the correct BI applications for their needs
