SAP Business Objects: Review by a Grumpy Old Customer

Overall, the tool (Web Intelligence 4.2) is fast and solid. One issue is a dependability on JAVA for a full feature report creation/edit capabilities (as opposed to limited HTML option). Second, planned end of JAVA support by major browsers (Chrome is already not supporting JAVA applet).

Great BI platform for organizations with established well-defined data practices, although not for the self-serve visualization era

Like any BI stack, how well it performs is dependent on many factors including what resources you provide the system itself and how well the source data is structured. If you do it right as at least a 3 tiered installation separating the processing components from the front end and keeping the database separate, along with a dimensional data warehousehouse as your source, it is a star performer.

SAP BIP what is it and what can it do?

When it is deployed properly the system is very stable and consistent in its response times. The way the product is designed the data sources it connects to and the bandwidth of the network its on can be the main performance inhibitors. Addressing these two factors can greatly increase performance overall. Integration with third party tools requires strict adherence to SAP specifications. When they are followed there is no performance degradation.
