New Business Objects Features Launched

New Business Objects Features Launched & Open Labs Scheduled
On Wednesday, August 21st, the Analytics Team hosted an event for users of the MyReports tab on the portal (Business Objects).The occasion marked the upgrade of Business Objects to a version that can report on HANA and has several other new capabilities, including the ability to report directly from a BEx query without needing to build an interface. The performance on the new connection to BW queries is about 5 times faster than the old connection type. In addition, the new version of Business Objects allows for mobile deployment of reports. Users can download the SAP BI app and login using Active Directory authentication to receive interactive reports on either an iPhone or an iPad.

Congratulations to Debra Garrett of the College of Fine Arts for being the lucky recipient of the Apple iPod Touch.

If there are any reporting questions, please either send an email to analytics@uky.edu OR come to the Business Objects Wednesdays (BOW) open labs, scheduled through December on the first Wednesday of every month, from 1 to 2 pm at McVey Hall, Room B72.
