Jamie Oswald’s Reaction to Steve Lucas Keynote at ASUG SABOUC 2014

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.

Data Archiving Update

Clint sat down, twice, with Henrique Pinto  from SAP to talk about where we are with SAP Data Archiving today. With SAP HANA today this means Near Line Storage for BW customers and Smart Data Access.

They also spoke about the much anticipated Extended Storage  which is due to become Generally Available in Q4 2014.\
