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

SAP Lumira on iPad

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.
