Birmingham City University will be speaking about their experiences in the Business Intelligence. The synopsis and speaker for this session will be confirmed soon.

Herman Ohlhoff
from Bluefin Solutions will discuss SAP HANA and the future of In-Memory Analytics. SAP HANA heralds the start of a new era in Business Analytics but it creates many questions. What is possible today with HANA 1.0 and what is coming in the near-term roadmap? What is the relationship between HANA and the NetWeaver BW Data Warehouse and how will these converge? How do you know if your business should consider implementing In Memory analytics today and what do the HANA apps that are coming later in 2011 mean to you?

Andrew Fox from Bluefin Solutions & Dawn Holmes from Brother will present Self Service Reporting – Panacea or Pain in the Neck? Using live examples, Bluefin and Brother UK Ltd will discuss their experience of implementing Business Objects to deliver self service reporting, including identifying the “self in self-service and how moving the service point from IT to business management can lead to culture change and better decision making. The implementation has not always been easy, and this will be a “warts and all exposé of the process, and the cultural, mental and philosophical issues encountered in order to deliver competitive advantage through technical solutions.

Kishor Pindoria & Michael Lescun from BP will be speaking about their Experiences of Implementing BusinessObjects on SAP BW. BP presentation will be around the experiences of implementation of SAP BO on SAP BW.
