Business Intelligence (BI) is a necessity for companies to gain a competitive advantage in their markets. Does your Business Intelligence system provide immediate access to information to let you make critical business decisions quickly? If not, you may want to consider implementing new BI software.
SAP BusinessObjects, once a satisfactory system, is slowly becoming difficult to use and the support for the system is fading out. Your company needs a system that will stay current with new technology, support your data models and has an easy user experience.

While you’re staying comfortable with your outdated system, your competitors are beginning to make moves to gain competitive advantages in the market. Modern business intelligence and business analytics systems give you the opportunity to hurdle your competition. One could debate the differences between a legacy SAP BusinessObjects solution and modern business intelligence system like Power BI. However, the ultimate truth is that most modern BI systems today, will give you an advantage over the outdated BI system you’re currently running.
What do modern BI systems have that SAP BusinessObjects doesn’t?

BI systems like SAP BusinessObjects were once the dominant players when it came to business intelligence systems. Although these systems had robust capabilities, they did not always respond to the complex needs of large enterprises. Microsoft Power BI is giving companies insights they didn’t know they had before, leading to a competitive advantage. Don’t continue to sit in the shadow of your competitors who have already upgraded.
In years past, implementing a new system would have taken weeks, maybe months. With Power BI, your new system and dashboards can be viewed in just hours or days. There’s never been an easier time to switch BI systems. You’ll have to move off SAP BusinessObjects eventually. Why not now? Contact us to begin your business analytics upgrade with Power BI.
