Free ASUG Membership for SAP BusinessObjects customers

September 14th, 2010 No comments

ASUG is offering a complimentary membership for North American customers and partners of the SAP BusinessObjects solution portfolio who operate in a non-ERP data environment. Whether you used to be a member of Global BusinessObjects Network (GBN) or not, you can now apply for membership.

At first, I didn’t like the idea of SAP charging customer for a user group, but now that I’ve been able to explore all the vast resources available on the website and see how easy it is to connect with other SIGs and people in an industry, I see it as a truly invaluable resource.   There are regular webinars on every conceivable topic and all webinars are archived in case you miss them.

Complimentary ASUG Membership Process

Take immediate advantage of your complimentary ASUG membership:

  • Click here to get the application started
  • Search for your company and complete an individual login application. If you do not see your company name just complete a corporate application for your organization to receive the complimentary  membership here.
  • If you are an SAP BusinessObjects partner, you will need to contact ASUG here and they will assist you through the application process.

Cool Xcelsius Dashboards and Where to Find Them

May 29th, 2009 12 comments

They’ve Got Style

I continue to be amazed by the dashboards being developed by our customers and partners to meet on going business needs.  Across every industry and every organization, regardless of size, companies are able to consolidate information into a single, interactive dashboard view.  Customers constantly ask me for examples of what other organizations have done, so I decided it was time to assemble a list of the best Xcelsius websites with samples.

Some of my Favorites

  1. My absolute favorite site is Inverra.  They are constantly updating their site with unique KPI centric examples.
  2. Benchmarkers.  Great Design, Xcelsius Experts.  Training Provided.
  3. Analysis Factory.  Very professional graphics.  Their supply chain example is tops.
  4. MyXcelsius Showcase.
  5. SAP SDN Xcelsius Samples. These samples are either from SAP or have been uploaded from customers.

Dashboarding Ideas

Need to keep you finger on the pulse of the dashboarding scene?  Looking for great ideas around dashboards in general?  There is one website above all others that has great information about creating dashboards with both Xcelsius and non-Xcelsius based technologies.  The website is Dashboard Spy and I highly recommend you give it a look.

They also have a great list of dashboard screenshots that’s worth a look:
