1:10- 1:55 pm | McKesson Customer Case Study: Data Quality Dashboard- David Wunderlich, McKesson Specialty

The programmatic identification of data quality and rule based exceptions is just one hurdle faced throughout the software development lifecycle.  The determination of root cause, triage, and  eventual correction of data and processes in a systematic and efficient manner can be daunting as well.   This session is a customer case study that will discuss the solution employed at McKesson Specialty during a large data conversion project to identify, monitor, and address data quality issues via an Xcelsius dashboard that utilizes InfoBurst query and  database write back functionality.   This session will explore the general functionality of the implemented solution including the benefits resulted from the implementation and future considerations.

2:00- 2:45 pm | Practices to ensure Corporate Governance and Compliance within BO – Christophe Ochin, GB&Smith

Organizations need to comply with multiple regulation (FISMA, SOX, HIPAA, etc.) and must know at all time who has access to what, track dormant users, etc. Companies have difficulties to monitor and document at all time rights such as inherited and double inherited rights with a GPS precision, as a result system breaches remain high. 360Suite will give you the ability to ensure and control your BO deployment in a more effective way as we have been doing for over 1M happy end users.

2:45- 3:00 pm | Break & Networking

3:00- 3:30 pm | What’s Coming in BI 4.2 – Paul Grill, InfoSol Inc

This session will preview some of the new features and functionality that is planned to be delivered including further enhancements to Web Intelligence, Crystal Reports and new administration features.

3:30- 4:00 pm | Where to go when you don’t know where to go with BO? – Runali Ghosh, InfoSol

With ever changing features and functionalities in the SAP BI tools, it is sometimes hard to keep up with the latest upgrades, possibilities and limitations. Not just that, one needs to be up to date with knowledge about troubleshooting, bugs and known issues with each new version and service pack release. Fortunately there is a large user community and with their contribution several strong knowledge base exists in place. I myself contribute to some of them myself and have been benefited immensely at occasions. My session will cover the most useful forums and how you can make most use of that. These are great resources to go to when you are in need.

4:00 – 4:15 pm | Raffle & Prizes
