It’s hard to believe that in just three short months it will be 2019. It’s been quite a journey this year for BI and analytics with our customers, our teams, and our products.

This journey has taken us from ‘governed BI’ to ‘modern and agile BI with data discovery,’ to the acceptance of cloud analytics and now emergent ‘smart BI’ using AI and machine learning to provide natural language interfaces.

Having been part of the BI and analytics team at SAP for close to 10 years, I’m personally excited about our direction, the advancements made, and the enthusiasm of our customers as they move to the cloud.
