BI2013Do your resolutions include losing some holiday weight, starting to run, or getting a new and better job? Or even something nobler – like volunteering or donating to a charity? I hope you’ll meet your goals, but as we all know, resolutions can be difficult to stick with.

But there’s one resolution I can recommend that’s easy to keep and rewarding to achieve. Resolve to attend the upcoming SAPinsider BI 2013 conference, March 19-22, in Las Vegas – it’s one goal that all professionals using and supporting SAP BusinessObjects business intelligence (BI) solutions should set.

Your company, like most, is probably faced with the challenges of finding hidden signals and meaning in streams of “big data” and disseminating that information to every corner of the organization and beyond. Gartner estimates that 15 percent of workers have access to analytics, and this number is expected to increase to 75 percent by 2020.

The SAPinsider BI 2013 conference, with a schedule that includes more than 250 educational sessions, networking events, and demos, represents a unique opportunity for you to learn news and best practices from peers, partners, and SAP experts. You will discover how to get the most out of your SAP solution investments in order to cope with these trends that will test the ease of use, scale, and flexibility of your business intelligence systems.

Sessions You Shouldn’t Miss

It can be a daunting task to build a detailed agenda from the broad and deep offerings of the SAPinsider BI 2013 conference program.  It’s loaded with strong best practices and methodologies taught by the companies that successfully practice them – a relevant resource for your own success.

To help you maximize this opportunity, I’d like to recommend the following customer case studies grouped across key themes.

1.      Business intelligence as a driver of better business performance and user productivity

2.     Dashboards and data visualization

3.      Self-service business intelligence

4.      Mobile business intelligence

5.      Business analytics

6.      Data management

7.      Business intelligence system administration

8.      Business intelligence upgrade
