SAP Technology Roadmap


Eric Vallo

Creating an integrated solution between SAP BW and SAP BusinessObjects comes with numerous dependencies and configuration challenges.  In this session, walk through the high level prerequisites and see how an EV Technologies customer took advantage of SAP BW, SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise, and Xcelsius to deliver a BW Accelerated dashboard via this platform.

Although the full reveal of the new ABAP development tools functionality won't come until September during TechEd, this session will give a selective preview of some of the more exciting and still in development features of the next major release of the ABAP development tools. See improvements to Floorplan Manager configuration tools, new Web Dynpro ABAP features, backend service modeling in SE80, and perhaps even a glimpse of ABAP in Eclipse.

“Managing change in SAP environments is a complex endeavor since changes are being constantly driven by both business needs as well as SAP support packs, enhancement packs and major releases.  This, coupled with the complexity of a global deployment with country specific variations of standard business processes, makes testing and change management especially difficult and time consuming.  Unfortunately for most organizations today, testing as well as change management is still largely a manual ad hoc process that consumes too much time and resources and is typically done poorly with very limited traceability and very little comprehensive coverage.  Effective use of automation as well as a fundamentally different approach using end-to-end business-process testing and impact analysis can fundamentally alter the testing equation in a very positive way.  Various impact analysis techniques exist in the market today.  When effectively coupled with automated testing, they can dramatically reduce the cycle time for making changes to SAP systems.  These impact analysis techniques and the overall resulting change management and automated testing process will be discussed in this session.”

In this presentation, learn how the SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise security model works.  Leverage features such as inheritance, scope of rights, and custom access levels to secure the business intelligence system, while reducing overall complexity and maintenance. Techniques demonstrated using SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1 are also applicable to SAP BusinessObjects Edge BI and the soon-to-be-released SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.0.
