Upgrade SAP BusinessObjects Set Analysis 3.1 deployment

Set Analysis 3.1

Looking to upgrade your SAP BusinessObjects Set Analysis 3.1 deployment? Keen to expand your analytical capabilities beyond Set Selection and drive value from the broader Business Objects suite of tools?

All SAP Business Objects Set Analysis 3.1 licenses needed upgrading  by the 31st December 2015 to continue to be supported and to get access to Business Objects Set Analysis 4.2?

For those customers running Business Objects Set Analysis, it has often become the most indispensable component of their analytics deployment, enabling them the deliver advanced analysis & segmentation of their marketable audience. Over time, for most Business Objects Set Analysis users, it will have become an operationally critical tool, fundamental to their go-to-market approach.

However, some fundamental changes in Business Objects Set Analysis licensing, means those customers running Set Analysis 3.1 (or earlier), and whose license is either Set Analysis Named User or Set Analysis CPU based, will have needed to upgrade their licensing before 31st December 2015 to continue being supported and to get access to the latest release of Business Objects Set Analysis 4.2.

The roadmap for Business Objects 4.2 sees Set Analysis return to the suite, however it will only (initially at least) be available to Named Users of the BI Suite through the IDT. For those customers running Set Analysis 3.1, there will be a need to convert from Set Analysis Named User or CPU to BI Suite Named User licensing.

The good news, is that the current roadmap for Set Analysis 4.2 sees a phased roll-out of all the key functionality (& more!) which a Set Analysis 3.1 customer would require, and the front-end design will typically mean minimal changes to the back-end architecture (data processes) when migrating. Further, increased integration with the broader suite of SAP Business Objects tools will typically see customers drive greater value from their Set Analysis 4.2 implementation through “interoperability”.
