IBIS 2019 Butterfly Banner

SAP BO Dashboards (Xcelsius) remains in a class of its own for its fast and simple way to create amazing BI dashboards. Sadly, SAP is not planning to support it from 2021 onwards. But all is not lost as a new development initiative is underway to produce a next generation follow-on solution that provides all the key functionality, along with a migration utility to convert your existing SAP BO Dashboards.

The project, led by InfoSol UK Labs, is code named “Secret Squirrel” and this session will explain why, how, what and when. We will provide the background into the project, discuss the roadmap (past, present) and demo the latest build of “Squirrel”. For the last part of the session we will be running a user influence session where people can propose enhancements, discuss ideas and the direction we’ve taken, and have a chance to pick our brains about the future of “Squirrel”.

USPI’s “License Free” Self-Service Analytics Portal

IBIS 2019 Butterfly Banner

Tuesday, June 18th 10:00am – 11:00am

United Surgical Partners International (USPI) has moved away from a “Push” reporting model to building out a custom Enterprise Business Intelligence Portal where thousands of end-users can go to in order to see their reports and dashboards, or build there own reports that they need to make their necessary decisions to run their business – license free! Utilizing BusinessObjects Launchpad was the “out of the box” solution, but would require each user to consume a BO License to access their reports and dashboards.

USPI instead built an enterprise reporting portal that did NOT require every user to log into BusinessObjects and consume a license. This portal needs to provide the capability of ad-hoc query building and applications that could write-back data to a database – is this possible in a license-free home grown portal that still leverages Business Objects? Come find out how USPI made this vision a reality.

Building Custom BI Dashboards

IBIS 2019 Butterfly Banner

Tuesday, June 18th 3:45pm – 4:45pm

While there are a lot of great BI dashboard tools on the market, they rarely meet all the needs and demands of what many organizations want to build. This is particularly true when there is a need for mobile, collaboration, write-back and high performance and scalability. So, rather than struggling to fit your requirements to the BI dashboard tool, why not build a custom BI dashboard that fits all of your requirements?
