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.

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

Jamie Oswald 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 platform, SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence  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.

And, my dog really ate my podcast.
