Pros
The Implementation of HANA is critical for reaching the next level of performance as well. SAP has very good customer service and the free education and learning resources are very useful.
This product give us the ability to pull reports with ease. Once you have successfully composed a report, you are able to build on the structure as needed.
Love how quick and easy it is to use this program. A lot of our major software programs are SAP based and very user friendly.
Cons
I think this is more of how poorly our company rolled this product out, but we are struggling to get through it.
As with any new product there are bugs and errors. I have been frustrated at times with the newer software and sometimes even the more mature software can be frustrating.
Data base integration often malfunctions for some RDMS, for example Netezza queries are often lost in queue. Adding new data sources and change request require complicated changes in Universe.

You need to take the next step.

Reviewed a year ago

In general it is a good tool, but it is becoming a bit outdated in the face of new alternatives.

Pros

It is a tool that can be integreted with other applications, it can also work with a lot of data and build ad hoc reports. Finally, reporting creation from information cubes is friendly when youa are heavy user.

Cons

Something that needs to be improved is the visualization of the reports, they should migrate to a more user-friendly dashboard. Another issue is that it is a bit complex to understand how it works when you just start using it.

My Review of SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence

Reviewed 2 months ago

My overall experience with SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence is good but needs some improvements.

Pros

I like the drag and drop option at SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence which allows me to move windows and dashboards anywhere. Also, it allows me to fully control the graphs from assigning labels and legends to controlling the layout and format.

Cons

There are a few documentation and tutorial online about SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence which makes it hard to learn. There is no web-based version of SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence. Also, it is too expensive to buy the software.
