2010 Year In Review

Year In Review Newspaper Headline

2010 was a busy year of SAP BusinessObjects migrations, ridding the world of BusinessObjects 5.1 one site at a time.  I also got to do a few health checks, helping customers adopt SAP BusinessObjects XI 3.1 and make their business intelligence strategy more effective.  2011 is shaping up to be an exciting year with the release of SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.0.

Many thanks to the new customers that I met in 2010!  It was a pleasure to work with all of you.
