    BI + Analytics Conference – Nashville

    Thanks to those who joined us for the BI + Analytics Conference in Nashville Aug. 7–9. The presentations focused on the practical needs of SAP® BusinessObjects™, business intelligence, and analytics users, including insights from customers, hands-on training, and other ways to help to increase productivity and efficiency.


    In addition, the conference allowed attendees to collaborate with other users and experts in feedback forum sessions. Attendees benefited from streamlined best practices, tested solutions, and a connection to a network of peers to call upon when troubleshooting.


    The conference hashtag #BIAconf generated over 1700 tweets.
