SAP BOBJ Upgrade (BO Upgrades)

With improvements to analytics, reporting, dashboards, security and more, it makes business sense to have access to the latest advances in business intelligence (BI) platforms. But while new features are great, they need to be outlined into a BusinessObjects upgrade project plan that ultimately impacts the end users day to day. WCI Consulting has comprehensive BusinessObjects migration experience and provides a unique approach to implementing and supporting your upgrade.
