POLL RESULTS: What do you think about SAP’s BI Strategy and Direction?

Do SAP analytics customers just not care anymore? Or simply big Phil Collins fans?

Which 80’s hit captures your reaction to today’s #askSAP webcast for BI Strategy and Direction? According to my unscientific poll, 38% of the respondents had a negative reaction ranging from “Shattered Dreams”, “What Have I Done To Deserve This”, to the most popular selection, “I Don’t Care Any More”. 32% of the respondents had a hopeful reaction, represented by songs “Things Can Only Get Better” and “Don’t You Forget About Me”. And 30% had a positive reaction, responding that “Jayne’s Getting Serious” about analytics. Those SAP customers are “Walking on Sunshine” in “Paradise” with their SAP HANA-powered analytics.

Today, Jane Landry published a follow-up piece from the webcast, #askSAP Analytics Community Call: SAP BusinessObjects BI Strategy & Roadmap Wrap-Up and Replay. There’s also a link to an extensive Q&A document that’s worth reading.
