Business Objects 4.1 Upgrade Date Scheduled

The Business Objects 4.1 upgrade is proceeding well and now has an official implementation date scheduled: March 13-15, 2015. After the upgrade, the Desktop Intelligence version of your ad-hoc reports will no longer be usable because they are not compatible with Web Intelligence. If you have not done so, now is the time to convert all your Desktop Intelligence reports to Web Intelligence.

For additional details, visit the Webi: the Future website.


Query Clearinghouse Update

To serve users better, DS has converted the most frequently used Query Clearinghouse reports to the Web Intelligence format and moved them to the Solution Library. The Query Clearinghouse has been decommissioned. If you need a report and cannot find it in the Solution Library, please contact us for assistance.
