Enclosed a PDF, created by Ingo Hilgefort (Director Solution Management at SAP), which describes on a very detailed level how to select the right SAP Business Objects BI Client product.

Within the PDF a distinction is made regarding selecting

  • based on your audience
  • based on product capabilities
  • based on your business requirements

Without taking away the fun in reading the document, the key take-aways are:

  • Your BI Strategy should start with the business requirements, not with the DWH.
  • Start by defining your requirements and your desired outcome.
  • Focus on the business pain points by area. One use case after the other – not all in once
  • Understand your audience. Let them describe their workflow. Listen !
  • Remember – Your BI Strategy starts with the business requirements.. Not with the DWH

Enjoy your reading!
