Making sense of SAP Business Objects for SAP BI customers

What's the deal with SAP Business Objects? It's a question SAP customers, particularly those with SAP BI investments, have been asking ever since SAP purchased the company more than a year ago.

Justin Burmeister and David Fox have been working on SAP BI and SAP Business Objects implementations for the past year. Fox is president of and principal BI architect with Claricent, Inc., and has more than 10 years of experience in SAP BI. Burmeister is a Basis consultant who has 11 years of SAP experience.

The two recently completed an SAP BI and Business Objects integration/implementation for a large SAP retailer. In this podcast, they offer a "down in the trenches" view of what went wrong, what went right and how to navigate SAP Business Objects as an SAP BI customer.
