Yesterday, Steve Lucas and his management team of Michael Reh, Christian Rodatus, Shekhar Iyer, Jack Miller and Jayne Landry laid out SAP’s future vision and strategy for SAP analytics. While many participants- including myself- were hoping for detailed roadmaps for their favorite BI tools, Steve’s team described in broad terms where SAP is heading and took questions from the audience posed by hosts Mico Yuk and Ryan Goodman. Steve promised that we would learn more at next month’s ASUG SAP BusinessObjects User Conference and SAP TechEd the month after in Las Vegas.
