SAP BusinessObjects to Actuate Migration
Our Client, a specialized distribution service with 10 billion in sales, decided to discontinue the use and support of its SAP/BusinessObjects enterprise business intelligence system. The migration from SAP was a multi-year project for the Client and the initial focus was to move their data warehouse analytics to MicroStrategy.
Having completed the analytics migration, Client was left with a large number of operational reports that were critical to the operation of specific business teams. Attempts to migrate these operational reports to MicroStrategy proved difficult and expensive, so Client decided to find a new product specifically for operational reporting.
A review of operational reporting solutions led Client to Actuate’s iHub 3 product. Actuate’s capabilities and cost were all significant decision factors. Most importantly, Actuate’s products provided a close match to the existing SAP solution, allowing Client to migrate from SAP without a significant change to its business intelligence architecture.
