Helping People Help Themselves

There are a lot of sites out there that offer support for SAP BusinessObjects. Guys like me love to blog about this stuff, too. However, it feels like a good point to put together a solid list of sites, not necessarily blogs, where you can go to get help.

BusinessObjects Board (BOB) – The de facto standard.
Tek-Tips
– More of a landing page for BI tools, but there is BOBJ content in here.
SDN – The BOBJ community on SDN (membership required for some of the content I think).
SAP Community Network Wiki – The title says it all.
ASUG – The new community site for webcasts, whitepapers, and more (membership required).
SAP Help Portal – Official documentation for SAP products. Mostly free although some documents are stored on SAP Service Marketplace and require an S-ID
SAP Service Marketplace – For SAP customers currently paying for support. (S-ID required)

Hey…let’s start there. Got others? Would love to keep this list fresh. I intend to do something more robust with the BOBJ blogs of the world out there soon.

From Others in the Community/My Take

I already got some good feedback from others out there. Keep them coming.

SAP Press (via Jim Brogden) – Seemingly the definitive list of books on and about the SAP product stack. Perfect for those of you that can’t live without a hard copy of a book nowadays 🙂
SAP Insider (via Sarah Cenedella) –
SAPinsider is the premier source of information on product and service initiatives coming from SAP and its partners.” More on this site on their about us page.
SAP Experts (also via Sarah Cenedella) – Presents itself as a search engine into the circle of knowledge bases based on the SAP product stack.
SAP Business Objects Solution Portfolio Knowledge Center (via P. Leroux) – Well that one is a mouthful. THE list of online guides published by SAP Business Objects. A must have.
