42-47254170-LumiraLast month I published a blog on the convergence of SAP BusinessObjects BI portfolio. As a follow up to this, we will provide an update to the SAP BI strategy and direction on the next #askSAP community webcast.

Data is exploding – doubling every 18 months or so. And it’s increasingly coming from highly unstructured sources, like the billions of Internet-enabled devices that have proliferated over the past several years. Of course, all of this data is useless unless it can help companies achieve their most ambitious business goals.

That’s where “collective insight” comes in; it’s about the very real, and potentially highly beneficial, convergence of analytics, data management, cloud computing, and mobility solutions.

Collectively, if managed effectively, these solutions can give you the power to engage with all of your data, move beyond pie charts and bar charts to develop more advanced visualizations, and gain huge value by predicting what’s coming next.

That’s why the next topic of our next SAP Analytics community call will focus on helping you unleash collective insight and gaining insight into the SAP’s BI product strategy and direction. Our featured speakers will cover the following topics:

  • Analytics Solutions from SAP: Vision and Strategy for Collective Insight
  • Simplifying the End-User Experience: The Convergence of the SAP BI Product Portfolio
  • Simplifying SAP Customer’s Technology Stack: Innovation Without Disruption
  • Simplifying Software Consumption: Analytics Solutions from SAP in the Cloud

You’ll also get the opportunity to take part in an interactive Q&A session with a panel of SAP experts, including Greg Myers, an SAP Mentor; Ty Miller, Vice President of SAP Lumira Product Management at SAP; and Blair Wheadon, GM of Business Intelligence for SAP application landscapes.

This is a great chance to get involved in the conversation – live – share your input on our product direction and strategy, and have your questions answered right in the moment.
