Overall Satisfaction with BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

Our Business Intelligence team uses it almost exclusively to build dynamic reports for both out internal users, customers, and vendors to mostly aid in the financial accounting of day to day operations. After our SAP implementation back in September on 2013, BOBJ was mainly used to recreate the reports our customers and personnel relied on to keep the books straight. Now that we have moved onto the Realization Phase of the implementation there has been a wide variety of requests for our BI team to tackle. The one report paramount to me is the KPI report they are developing, which is a currently a manual task I undergo weekly to consolidate the company's most important Key Performance Indicators and used to steer decision making at the highest level.
  • Dynamic reporting and consolidation of information from disconnected sources
  • Adaptability to needs of shifting business initiatives
  • QA environments are understandably slow, but BOBJ's borders on driving me crazy
  • Users must be highly trained to maximize the tool's capabilities.
  • Thus far the BI team has been playing catch-up since our SAP implementation, as a good many important customer facing reports were left out of the implementation as a requirement for go-live.
  • The scalability and SAP data conversion are the real value.
This tool is really the best option when undergoing an IT overhaul in switching to an SAP driven production system. There are many competitors but the overall suite of out-of-the box functionality is hard to pass up.
As it is our organization's new reporting tool, it is the default application to create or recreate existing reports to utilize the data captured in SAP.

Using BusinessObjects SRC (Discontinued)

It is already an integral part of our company's reporting and will be leveraged to create new growth sectors in the industry. I see it as a valuable tool for creating new services for our customers to increase billing and strengthen ROI.
