The BusinessObjects Technical SIG is taking place on Tuesday 20th March 2012 at SAP Objects house, Vanwall business park, Vanwall road, Maidenhead Berkshire SL6 4UB. Sybase are sponsoring this meeting.

Mike Potts from Sybase (UK) Ltd will deliver a presentation on Low Latency Business Analytics - using Sybase IQ and Business Objects. Business Analytics solutions rarely perform as unfettered as business users need them to.
Reason? We as users "Kill the goose" before is has laid the "Golden Egg" by overloading its capability. This workshop demonstrates how using Sybase IQ allows you to remove these workload constraints through Sybase IQ's uniquely powerful performance capability, and harness the power of Sybase IQ to find the "Golden Nugget", regardless of query complexity, user numbers, or data growth. The workshop will give brief overview of Sybase IQ then demonstrate the power of using Business objects in combination with Sybase IQ. Also it will demonstrate the power of delivering business analytics via mobile devices.

Gordon Crawford from Northamptonshire Police will deliver the session Dynamically Building OpenDoc Commands outside Business Objects. This process can effectively allow a simplified Business Objects security model, and allow the user access to BI products to be controlled by data inherent in most HR systems. If the HR system is properly maintained to fulfil legal requirements, the opportunity exists to significantly reduce the overhead of maintaining a separate set of group memberships within the Business Objects system. The process could also be adjusted to fulfil a wide variety of different requirements, based upon the OpenDoc command being built outside the Business Objects environment.

Roland Hoeller from SAP UK will be delivering a session on Upgrading to BI4. Upgrading to BI4 is a project and needs some planning to be successful. The presentation highlights some important aspects to take into consideration apart from running the Upgrade Management Tool.

Graham Sturmy from SAP UK will present Backup and Recovery of Business Objects Enterprise. This session will look at the planning and practical steps required to minimise downtime caused by a system failure of a Business Objects Enterprise XI 3.1 and BI 4.0 platform.

Graham will focus on how to recover from three different types of failures to ensure that you can restore the system to a working state for your business:

  • Database failure
  • Hardware Failure of the Business Objects system
  • Loss of data (e.g. user deleting a folder)

 Peter Humble from SAP will deliver the presentation Mobile BI – How it Works. Business Objects have had a mobile solution for a number of years but with the smart phone revolution finally there is a real demand for accessing Business Intelligence whilst on the move. This session will provide a overview on how to deploy and use SAP BusinessObjects Mobile Business Intelligence.
