The Future of SAP BusinessObjects Explorer

Diversified Semantic Layer host Eric Vallo catches up with Explorer enthusiast (and DSL panelist) Dallas Marks and two Explorer customers, Jamie Oswald and Dave Rathbun. While glimpses of Explorer functionality are showing up in SAP Design Studio, SAP Lumira, and even SAP BusinessObjects Cloud, it doesn’t yet have a complete replacement or a migration path.

Join us for a candid conversation about the past, present, and future of SAP BusinessObjects Explorer.

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.

Into 2015 – Is Design Studio the Dashboard Slayer?

Ahmed Sherif and Mike Howles join hosts Jamie Oswald and Eric Vallo to revisit a topic on all our minds. Is SAP Design Studio ready to unseat SAP Dashboards? Or has it already?

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.

SAP HODGEPODGE

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.  Derek Loranca joins Diversified Semantic Layer regulars Josh Fletcher, Greg Myers, Jamie Oswald, and me. And, my dog really ate my podcast.
