Overall Satisfaction with SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform

SAP BO BI is widely used in my organization since it is a tool that does not require an understanding of coding and provides a good supplement to support tools such as Excel and pivot tables. It is a good tool for a business analyst to do reporting and data visualization.
  • Nice visualization.
  • Nice reporting.
  • Integrated system.
  • Required java.
  • Based on Adobe.
  • Stability.
Even though all these tools are very similar to each other, SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform does have better integration with the database than other competitors such as Microsoft Power BI. On the side of SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform you also have very a good data visualization ability that matches with its competitors.
Overall decent connection, SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform allows its users to connect the data with the most popular databases. The connection is good enough for even real time data analysis which ensures most of the performance review and data monitoring work that we need to perform at a real time basis.
As for sharing and collaboration capabilities of SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform, it is overall a good tool to share data. On one side, it has very strong data connection as I mentioned before which ensures the basis for data sharing. On the other side, it allows you to render into different formats.
SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) Platform is well suited for a business analyst who performs basic data analysis and data visualization and output into the report originally through Excel or without too deep understanding of coding or any other data science tool that allows them to perform the analysis in R or Python.
