SAP BO - the ultimate Reporting Platform

5.0 8 months ago

Comments: SAP BO has provided the most user-friendly and also complex reporting system that is available. Being a daily user, I find that the system is easy to understand and allows the user a certain level of creativity. I also appreciate that SAP maintains up-to-date changes for new data connections and patches for correcting known issues.

Pros:

SAP BO provides a vast array of capabilities for using data across our companies' systems and provides expansive tools to process and display our data. SAP BO allows us to use large amounts of data across multiple instances (such as EWM, S4, etc.) and consume the data quickly and easily. It also allows for many different reporting designs, formats, and use cases for our reporting needs

Cons:

SAP BO is a complex system that sometimes requires knowledge of the schema integration in order to solve issues. This does not allow for everyday users that are not power users to self-service issues and can lead to a developer backlog. Also, our company has run into issues that were only able to be solved by SAP and there was a large lead time in waiting for a solution.

SAP Business Objects - Watch your wallet

3.0 5 years ago

Comments: This company has draconian licensing and contract renewal process. They are not willing to work with consumers on any part of renegotiating a contract. For this reason alone I would never recommend this product to a colleague.

Pros:

Business Objects has a great number of features. Report scheduling, dashboarding, and data file exports were some of the major features I used in this package.

Cons:

Version upgrades are extremely difficult to perform without consulting. Troubleshooting messages tend to be cryptic which makes troubleshooting a laborious and tedious process.
