Comprehensive Data Analytics Platform

  • December 12, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Ease of use and easily integrated into other spreadsheets. SAP Business Objects is a great tool for data analysis and was useful for our team to develop informed strategies for growth. Our data team was able to code and use additional queries to help customize our search.
What do you dislike?
SAP Business Objects is a powerful tool that can be used to accomplish a variety of data requests. It is not an easy to learn platform and isn't very intuitive for first-time users. This program requires attention, training and help for users.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Recently, SAP BusinessObjects was instrumental in informing our strategies to move into a virtual setting in light of Covid. Specifically, the tool allowed our team to separate out different users and groups more likely to engage in new virtual programs and target our marketing efforts accordingly.

Frequent SAP Business Objects Use

  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
I like the ability to pull detailed transactions from Business Objects. I use it to review financial data such as payables. It captures information like invoice date, vendor number, due date, received date, check number and others. Most importantly, you can easily download business objects queries into Excel and use pivot tables. It allows you to save a lot of standard templates.
What do you dislike?
It can be difficult to get used to building your own queries. You have to be cautious about how you use the fields.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Managing all accounting data. Using it in coordination with Oracle SmartView to reconcile accounts.
