Somehow, once lost in the abyss of the interwebs, we’ve found an episode recorded last October with none other than Timo Elliott.
We’re humbled that Mustafa Bensan mentioned our podcast in the Design Studio Innovation Series on the SAP Community network.
I found it to be a very informative and timely discussion with a balanced mix of opinions, which makes for a good follow-up and contrast to prior discussions on the topic.
Last September, I moderated an #askSAP Community Call on the SAP BusinessObjects BI Strategy and Roadmap. Nick Smith published a recap today on the SAP Analytics blog. Listen to the original recording as Steve Lucas, Jayne Landry, Ty Miller, and Blair Wheadon discuss the future of SAP business intelligence.
You can read my thoughts about the call on the EV Technologies blog in an article entitled The Times They Are a Changin’.
Jamie gave his reaction immediately following Steve Lucas‘ keynote at the ASUG SAP Analytics and BusinessObjects User Conference in Fort Worth, Texas last month.
Already off-brand in my second sentence. Steve, beyond bringing charisma, did a great job expressing the pain of what SAP BusinessObjects and/or SAP Analytics customers are going through at their businesses. A first step we should all be looking at is to get on the most recent major version of the SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform – 4.1. This allows customers to take advantage of the innovation that is there and prepares them to receive more frequent updates of that some innovation going forward.
Here’s Steve’s Keynote.

If we could have named this episode appropriately, we sure would have. Today, we talk about topics ranging from ASUG SABOC to SAP Lumira to the lifespan of BI4.1. And, my dog really ate my podcast.
