EV Technologies coming to Pittsburgh

EV Technologies is coming to Pittsburgh, PA on Thursday July 19, 2012. Or is that PittsBOUG? Eric Vallo, Greg Myers and Dallas Marks will be presenting the following sessions at the Pittsburgh BusinessObjects User Group (PGHBOUG) based on the recent release of SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.0 Feature Pack 3 and Support Pack 4.

We Will Miss You, Import Wizard
Getting Acquainted with Content Migration Technologies in SAP BusinessObjects BI4
Eric Vallo, Chief Architect, EV Technologies

We’ve been getting groomed for years with the arrival of Lifecycle Manager for the eventual demise of the Import Wizard. Is it your friend, or foe? In this presentation, we will walk through some approaches to both large and small content migrations as you both upgrade from older versions of SAP BusinessObjects, and how you manage migrations in a post-XI 3.1 world.

Awash in the Watchlist
You want me to monitor what?
Greg Myers, Principal Technical Architect, EV Technologies

The SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform Monitoring Engine received a major overhaul in Feature Pack 3. Take a tour of the Monitoring Dashboard to see what has changed and improved from the base release. Learn the difference between Metrics, Watches, and Probes, and when and how to use each to develop your own, meaningful Enterprise Monitoring solution.

Key Takeaways:

  • Demonstration of the BI4 Monitoring engine, and show what to monitor.
  • Demonstrate differences between Server watches and Probes.
  • How to develop an Enterprise Monitoring Solution.

Exploring the Universe
What IT needs to know about SAP BusinessObjects Explorer
Dallas Marks, Principal Technical Architect, EV Technologies

SAP® BusinessObjects™ Explorer brings together the simplicity and speed of search with the trust and analytical power of BI to provide immediate answers to casual business users. With Exploration Views introduced in Feature Pack 3, Explorer becomes the dashboarding solution for these non-technical users as well. This session is designed for IT professionals who want to deploy Explorer Standard Edition today using existing universes and understand when deployments with BW Accelerator or SAP HANA make more sense. Learn about architecture, installation options, security and mobility on both the XI 3.x and BI 4 versions. After this session, you’ll be able to extend your business intelligence environment to casual business users with intuitive access to the same “single version of the truth” that powers existing business intelligence applications.
