SAP BusinessObjects BI4 | Training for the Transition – Paul Grill
BI 4 provides for a major new release of BusinessObjects bringing many new products and functionalities. As such, it requires education to become knowledgeable and effective in using it. SAP has released a set of BI 4 instructor-led and e-learning courses along with new certifications. There are also delta offerings available to cover the differences between the last major release (BO XI 3.1) and BI 4. This informative session will help you to understand the offerings so you can make informed choices around your training needs. The session will also discuss the most effective training timing; where BusinessObjects administrators may benefit from training prior to the migration whereas most users would benefit just prior to production go live.
