Video: SAP’s Steve Lucas on BI 4.0 GA

September 19, 2011 by ASUG Admin

As SAP BusinessObjects 4.0 is finally for sale, ASUGNews.com sat down at SAP TechEd with Steve Lucas to ask him some questions about what held it up, and whether it’s worth waiting for BI 4.1 now.

It may have been a longer ramp-up than many expected, but SAP BusinessObjects 4.0 was also one of SAP’s largest ramp-ups, says Lucas, who is General Manager of Business Analytics. There are more than 400 SAP BusinessObjects 4.0 implementations. Lucas also took on the question of what worked, and what still needs work, in the integration of the BusinessObjects and SAP cultures, specifically around maintenance and support and product roadmaps.
