Recording: #AllAccessSAP Xcelsius SOD Update & 2013 SAP BI Roadmap & Stats!

Happy New Years!

We first want to say thanks for attending our final #AllAccessSAP webinar of 2012. Unlike our past webinars, we did something a bit different this time.  We issued a survey to our audience asking them ‘What’ they wanted to hear about and from ‘Who’.  We were astonished to receive over 2,200+ votes (see details below).

SURVEY: Pre-Webinar Results (2,200+ Votes) revealed…

  1. WHAT – 49% of you wanted to hear about the Xcelsius SOD Future,  SAP Tool Choices and Dashboard Mobility
  2. WHO – 78% of you wanted to hear it from Mico Yuk (myself), Ryan Goomdan, SAP Analytics Product Team


STATS: 4 Amazing Webinar Facts

  1. Registration soared to almost 500+ registrants! (20+ countries)
  2. 3 Superstar SAP Analytics Product Managers as panelist, namely Mani Srinivasan, Charles Gadalla and Ian Mayor who all did an AMAZING job answering questions!  Big thanks to them for participating and making this a success. :-) (special thanks to Mani and James Fisher for organizing)
  3. Great Blog ResponseRead an exciting recap from SAP Mentor Zimkitha Buwa
  4. In less than 2 hours  - 529 tweets on our twitter hashtag #AllAccessSAP  from over 71 contributors (special thanks to everyone that participated in making this webinar go viral!)


RECORDING: Xcelsius SOD Update + Clarity on Visual Intelligence & Predictive Analysis (60 mins of No BS)

NOTE: This webinar was 120 minutes long but due to issues with gotowebinar we only were able to post the first 60 minutes. This unfortunately chopped off the ending where we had BI Community members check in from over 5 different countries including the Middle East, South America, USA, Canada, and Australia.  What a great way to end the year! Sit back, relax and listen….
