4.0 Releases of BI and EIM Solutions Feature Greater Integration

Today in New York we introduce the new 4.0 releases from our SAP BusinessObjects portfolio. I am particularly excited about these because, in my humble opinion, they are the strongest releases of BI and EIM solutions in SAP’s history. I’d like to focus on one reason why: integration.

Over the past three years, we have listened closely to our customers and worked bring more unity across all our SAP BusinessObjects solutions. As the analytics portfolio has evolved, customers achieved remarkable results for their businesses using BI, EIM, EPM and GRC solutions from SAP. The 4.0 releases are part of our ongoing commitment to help customers get the most out of their analytics, beginning with tighter integration of our BI and EIM solutions, giving them a common look and feel, making them easy for people to use and derive value from, and delivering it to them quickly, in real-time, any way they want it, on any device — at their desk or on the go.

Integrated with our SAP BusinessObjects analytic applications and our soon-to-be-announced 10.0 releases of GRC and EPM solutions, the 4.0 releases deliver on the SAP analytics roadmap and vision. We believe that by bringing people powerful, lightning-fast business analytics software in the most intuitive experience possible, they can now easily access unprecedented amounts of information to make better decisions  that help transform and grow their organizations.

But don’t just take my word for it – see what customers and partners are saying about the new 4.0 releases: “Customers and Partners Recognize the Power of Business Analytics From SAP.”

Stay tuned: the 4.0 releases of BI and EIM solutions are just part of SAP’s overall business analytics roadmap. In March we plan to roll out our next-generation governance, risk and compliance solutions, and in April we plan to roll out the new release of enterprise performance management solutions, along with ongoing releases of industry and line-of-business analytic applications throughout the year.
