Software Version

Business Objects 4.0

Modules Used

  • SAP HR,MM,CRM and SD

Overall Satisfaction

  • This is a complete reporting tool, it provides ad-hoc reporting capabilities for the users.
  • It does not store huge amounts of data. We cannot create datamarts but we can use them for reporting.
  • Saves users time, as they do not have to analyze all the data themselves; it also saving time by scheduling these reports to be delivered to users' email everyday at same time.
This is a perfect business solution for reporting, especially when companies are using SAP as their main business solution.

Product Usage

10000 - All of the business users in various departments use this tool to generate daily and monthly reports on their part of business.
10 - 5 Admins and 5 developers
  • Used for reporting purposes.

Evaluation and Selection

We picked this directly; as we already have a previous version of Business Objects, it will be easier to upgrade than to switch systems.


All the functionality of previous versions were upgraded appropriately, Technical support is always available.
  • Implemented in-house
Worked with Infosys Datalysys team to implement this.


  • In-person training
It was good and complete training.



Response is fast and good based on the level of question that we raise.


We use this tool everyday to generate 100's of reports over different modules.


Its available anytime. Depends on the server configuration.
I can see this is the best reporting tool available on market right now.


  • SAP BW
  • SQL
  • Oracle Database
It was the same compared as the previous version

Vendor Relationship

It was pretty easy, as we are already a customer. We had a discount.
