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


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.

Jayne Landry @ SAPPHIRE 2015

Jamie and Clint found some time at Sapphire 2015 to talk to Jayne Landry – Global VP & GM Business Intelligence about all things Analytics. Yes, we’re a tad late in posting. But, better late than never.

Just one correction to the podcast is that Design Studio 1.5 that was mentioned and showcased at Sapphire is already GA.
