Overall Satisfaction with SAP Business Objects

SAP Business Objects is used by our entire organization. It helps resolve complex reporting issues. We use this tool for ad-hoc reporting, sales analytics reporting and supply chain reporting. It also helps us manage a large group of user base in an enterprise environment. It does support creation of reports for all the sales hierarchy from sales rep to management.
  • Connecting to multiple sources irrespective of whether it is SAP or non SAP.
  • IT, HR, Finance and Sales reporting.
  • New intutive look to develop reports, charts and static and dynamic dashboards.
  • Customer support, I think for any tool based issue I face on a daily bases often times requires a ticket to be opened for SAP which sometimes takes forever for resolution.
  • The process of educating developers when a new feature(s) have been introduced should be made easy.
  • Time for a resolution from SAP should be faster.
  • obiee and MSBI
I feel that SAP Business Objects tool gives me the competitive advantage over other tools because most large organizations use SAP Business Objects because of its endless scalability. Moreover it has more secured features with restrictions levied at the row level and easy to login options with various authentications to support single sign on.
SAP Business objects is well suited in sales reporting, and ad-hoc reporting where users are able to create their own reports with minimum IT involvement. It is an easy to implement tool with a stable platform. It has the benefit of making a secured clustered environment to support large enterprise accounts for various reporting needs.
