The solution combines all SaaS-based BI offerings in the SAP BusinessObjects portfolio.
SAP has introduced its new SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand solution, targeted at casual BI users who find themselves underserved by products currently on the market.
"The new integrated solution combines all the SaaS-based BI offerings that reside in the SAP BusinessObjects portfolio," writes Channel Insider’s Carolyn April. "The solution lets users access data from other SAP systems (including on-premises), third-party software such as Salesforce.com and their own desktops, combine that data and use tools such as Business Objects Explore to visualize different versions of the date for analysis in dashboard or report form. The information can be shared securely — inside and outside the firewall — with other users, according to SAP."
"Customers want to work with their data their way — whether it’s behind a firewall, on the Web, or on their local computer in spreadsheets," says SAP’s Marge Breya. "Only SAP can deliver what customers need in this new reality. We understand that user choice is driving the growth of SaaS BI. That’s why solutions like SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand let customers understand their business the way they want — instantly and easily."
"With access to data at their fingertips, customers can make more confident decisions, share their insights with others and react quickly to any changes in their business," Breya says. "SAP makes BI more pervasive by giving underserved casual users an affordable, easy-to-use on-demand BI solution. This is an important milestone in SAP’s on-demand vision, and further proof that we continue to innovate in the cloud.
