News Detail » Business Intelligence Strategy for 2012

SAP customers have lots to consider these days.  Keeping one eye on their current infrastructure and maintenance costs and their other eye on the future has long been a task for IT Directors and SAP PMO's.  With your SAP BW backend, Business Objects front-end and HANA considerations, things have become less clear.  In addition, a handful of newly established BI software vendors with compelling stories are capturing the attention of decision makers.

Recent additions to Gartner's Magic Quadrant for BI are making some people turn their heads and are giving serious thought to alternatives.  Traxion Consulting has been advising clients on Enterprise Information Strategies (EIS) for years and we are very much aware of the options available to customers who have significant investment in SAP software.

  • Upgrading to a newer release of SAP Business Warehouse(BW)
  • Considering adopting the SAP Business Objects suite of tools
    • Xcelsius
    • Business Objects Explorer
    • Web Intelligence (Webi)

    • Crystal Reports
  • Investigating BI software alternatives with better Time to Value, TCO and ROI
