What’s in BusinessObjects v4.0?

What’s in BusinessObjects v4.0?: "

Have you had a sneak peak into the SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.0 Platform?  No?

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence v4.0 Architecture

I just came across this link today and had to share it.  If you want to get a peek into the new Architecture components, then this is the place to look.

You can click on the image above or click here:

It’s a very nice representation of what’s happening in the infrastructure.  All the new naming conventions are there and as you click on the boxes, it gives you additional details.  It cleverly tells you a components “former name”, whether it’s a web based or desktop based solution, etc.

Check it out!

More To Come

I’m hoping over the coming weeks to begin sharing more and more information about the imminent release of the v4.0 platform.  I’ve spent quite a bit of time working with it this week and I must say, I really like what I see.  The interface is beautiful and much of the redesign work focused around ease-of-use and user interface design is really nice.  I didn’t really like the XI 3.1 InfoView when it first came out, but I really, really like the new and improved InfoView, renamed BI Launch Pad… but more on that later.

Have a great weekend!
