The momentum of customers moving to the SAP BusinessObjects Cloud is rapidly accelerating – and so are the innovations being introduced by SAP. New features and functionality for cloud and on premise with SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise offer hybrid use cases that organizations can take advantage of as they embark on their journey to the cloud.

In the December askSAP call we posed a poll question related to your cloud plans and learned that many of you will be exploring a move to the cloud this year, and many of you are planning an on premise and cloud environment. As you make these transitions no doubt you have a lot of questions. This #askSAP Analytics Community Call will be focused on providing the information to answer those questions. You will hear from SAP BusinessObjects Cloud customer, B. Braun, and our panel of analytics experts will discuss innovations and how to take advantage of what’s coming next.

During this live call you will:
  • Learn SAP’s vision and strategy for analytics and product direction for cloud and on premise solutions
  • Experience new innovations and capabilities for SAP BusinessObjects Cloud and insights into future releases
  • Hear hybrid use cases on how SAP analytics solutions are allowing organizations to act in the moment
  • Learn about continued innovation to your on-premise SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise solution and data investment; including interoperability with SAP BusinessObjects Cloud to enable, extend, and expand beyond the current boundaries of your business today
  • Learn how existing SAP analytic investments such as Universes, Business Planning and Consolidations models, Predictive Analytics models, and Lumira models can be used with SAP BusinessObjects Cloud
  • Have plenty of opportunities to ask questions through live chat or Twitter
