SAP Enhances BusinessObjects Edge Solutions
SAP BusinessObjects Edge BI Software will now include an intuitive data-navigation tool and increased support for mixed IT environments.
SAP AG has announced the availability of enhancements to the SAP BusinessObjects Edge solutions, including SAP BusinessObjects Edge BI, its business intelligence (BI) software for small businesses and midsize companies. Now midmarket companies will be able to use SAP BusinessObjects Polestar software, a guided data navigation application that helps any business user to easily explore information and quickly answer important business questions via simple search. Following the launch of SAP BusinessObjects XI 3.1 solutions last fall, SAP BusinessObjects Edge BI 3.1 also offers integration with data sources from a variety of vendors, including Oracle and Microsoft. Finally, packaged versions of SAP BusinessObjects enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions will help small and midsize organisations create and execute more-informed business strategies and more efficiently perform planning, budgeting and consolidation.
SAP BusinessObjects Polestar Delivers the Value of BI to Everyone
With intuitive BI tools and increased support for customers using non-SAP applications, users gain better visibility into business information from across their organisation--regardless of their skill level or IT system.
With SAP BusinessObjects Polestar provided as part of SAP BusinessObjects Edge BI, now employees can use an easy-to-use keyword search to find information from any data source. This solution displays results like reports and easy-to-read dashboards, automatically creating visual representations of data, such as charts and graphs.
SAP BusinessObjects Polestar has intuitive data exploration and visualisation capabilities that let users drill down into a particular topic, like sales by region, by simply clicking on the report, data set or dashboard. No prior BI training or IT expertise is required.
Support for Heterogeneous IT Environments Improves Insight
The majority of midsize customers have a mixed IT infrastructure based on software from SAP and other vendors. SAP BusinessObjects Edge BI 3.1 supports those customers with Oracle integration kits for the Oracle eBusiness Suite, as well as JD Edwards, PeopleSoft and Siebel applications.
Customers now have more flexibility and choice with the addition of SAP BusinessObjects Edge BI 3.1 support for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and SharePoint Server 2008, as well as an updated .NET development kit.
SAP BusinessObjects EPM Solutions Packaged for the Midmarket
Responding to demand from partners and customers, select EPM solutions will be specially packaged and priced for small and midsize customers. SAP BusinessObjects Edge Strategy Management will help small and midsize customers improve performance and align execution with strategy by connecting goals, initiatives and metrics. SAP BusinessObjects Edge Planning and Consolidation helps these organisations to create, execute and monitor budgets that are aligned to financial plans and resources.
