SAP recently announced the renaming of most of several key BI solutions and products primarily in order to bring clarity to their BI stack and ever-growing product suite. “These changes were made to make it easier for everyone to identify the SAP BusinessObjects BI solutions and better understand their capabilities. The changes will also help differentiate the enterprise-level solutions from those sold through SAP resellers, distributors and the SAP Store.”

Thoughts on “SAP BI – NEW Product Names with 4.0”

    On checking the “SAP Network Community” Portal, it seems like, the date was pushed out to Aug, 2011. It seems like the date will continue to change until the SAP developers have thoroughly tested the product.

    I guess everyone should continue to monitor the official rampup site for updates. (Click on “SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform 4.0”). Hope this helps!

  2. Thanks for the information, Neetu. Although some of these name changes are subtle, it is still important to be aware of them.
