To Our BusinessObjects Community,

In these unprecedented times, the one lesson we have learned is to stay flexible and go with the flow.

Due to the Social Distancing Guidelines and the ban on large gatherings in effect throughout the world, we will not be able to hold our annual IBIS in-person conference.  Instead, we are excited to announce that the BusinessObjects community will gather, live and virtually, at The SpeakBO Experience.

This virtual event will run the same week that the IBIS Main Conference was scheduled but will span all five days (June 22nd – 26th) and cover the same BusinessObjects content you would expect to receive at IBIS.

Here’s a sneak preview of what the SpeakBO Experience will encompass during the first week.

Five-Days of Seminar Sessions running June 22nd – 26th! Each day will have a specific topic that we will cover:

  • Monday, June 22nd, 2020 – Limitless Business Intelligence Customer Case Studies
  • Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020 – BO Admin and Universe Design
  • Wednesday, June 24th, 2020 – Dashboards and Data Visualizations
  • Thursday June 25th, 2020 – BusinessObjects Web Intelligence
  • Friday June 26th, 2020 – The InfoBurst Experience


We will have special guest speakers, Live Q&A, Awards and so much more that is possible in a virtual setting.

As for Pre and Post hands-on training, we can’t wait to show you what we have in mind!

Instead of having to choose, now, you will be able to have it all because we have spread the content out over time – with pre and post workshops moved to span two months and will include:

  • One-day Hands-On Workshops
  • Two-day Hands-On Boot Camps


  • Three-Day Hands-On Training Courses

And the list of topics covered will include:

  • BusinessObjects BI 4.3 Bootcamp
  • BusinessObjects and Tableau Co-existence
  • BI 4.2/BI 4.3 Upgrades
  • IDT in a Day
  • SQL for Data Analysts: Beginner/Intermediate
  • BusinessObjects Core Administration
  • Mastering Tableau in Two Days
  • SQL for Data Analysts: Advanced
  • Creating Web Intelligence Dashboards
  • Using Web Intelligence 4.2 Like a Pro
  • IDT Boot Camp

We can’t wait to show you the whole SpeakBO Experience.

We are currently working as fast as possible on a portal to share with you.

We are so excited about what we are designing and architecting as we speak and we can’t wait to open it up for you to begin planning your SpeakBO experience!

If you were registered for IBIS 2020, you should have received an email from us and we will continue to be in touch over email in the next week to get you all of the details on this event, your registration, what is included, extended covid-19 refund policy, and all that good stuff! So please sit tight.
