Redesigning Designer

Before we begin, don’t think this is the Mustafa episode. Google was stuck on his face for about 19 minutes. Then you get to see the rest of our handsome mugs. In this episode, Robert, Jamie, Mustafa, Mike, and Eric talk about their hopes for an eventual return of the name SAP Design Studio for SAP Lumira Designer, and a host of other improvements.

 

Customers Talk SAP Analytics Statement of Direction

Jamie, Derek, Eric, and some guy named Mike regroup now that the dust has settled a little bit to talk about the impact that the SAP Analytics State of Direction has on them as customers.

A Bend in the SAP Data Discovery Roadmap

Blair Wheadon joins Clint and Jamie to dive in on an “it might take two commutes to listen to it” episode all about the big Statement of Direction on the future of SAP Analytics.

 

BI & A – Not your Grandfather’s BusinessObjects Conference

Jamie and Clint are joined by Steve Morris of Eventful Conferences to discuss the upcoming ASUG Business Intelligence & Analytics Conference (formerly SABOC, formerly SBOUC). An Eventful conference is a little different than the old SABOC (and any other SAP Analytics conferences) and we talked about what is different and why. We also got to watch Steve melt as we cornered him into talking on a bright California afternoon whilst waiting to pick up a kid.

If you’re interested in the next iteration of this conference, it’s a must listen (and quickly – the event is August 7-9 in Nashville.

Steve Lucas

No. STEVE LUCAS!

In between kitten cuddles, a part time job at The GAP, and sending questionable Snapchat pics to Jaime, Steve Lucas was kind enough to take a few minutes out of his hiatus to talk about life after SAP, the road ahead, and Troy Aikman’s giant hands. We don’t know precisely where he’s going, but we can only hope it really will be in our back yard still. Thanks for everything, Steve.

Analytics in the Cloud

Jamie, Greg, Dallas, Clint, and Eric are back together again, talking authoritatively on a product we’ve had no robust experience on. That’s how we roll. Seriously, though, the gang regroups on how analytics of any kind play into the cloud, whether on SAP Cloud for Analytics or Amazon Web Services.
