In this podcast, two SAP BI consultants shed light on where SAP Business Objects fits in your BI application landscape.

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.
