I saw this pdf slide presentation on SAP’s Business Objects road map last week and thought it might be interesting to people. https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/10c3bca6-7dbc-2a10-7aa8-81d2731c7bb1
If you are using any BOBJ applications, refer to slide 13 to see what the future roadmap is.
On slide 26, they say that Voyager connects to SAP BW via XMLA, which is interesting. I had thought this connectivity was OLAP BAPI. If it is XMLA, then this is a major step forward for XMLA because my guess is that Voyager would also connect to Microsoft Analysis Services and Oracle/Hyperion Essbase via XMLA. If anyone knows more about this, please comment.
I haven’t played with the Mobile connectivity described in slide 28, but it sounds interesting. Interesting to see that they connect to SAP BW via the OLAP BAPI, which means the connectivity is MDX. This sounds similar to the mobile connectivity demos that Microsoft was showing when they first introduced XMLA.
