The Benefits of MHR and SAP
The SAP BusinessObjects product suite includes an impressive range of tools covering reporting, data services, advanced and interactive analysis. We ensure that organisations are able to extract maximum value from these capabilities.
Generating instant insights
iTrent comes with hundreds of pre-built reports. However, with a tool such as BusinessObjects at your fingertips, your reporting capabilities are boosted to create precisely the reports you need, in the right format, to get the right information to the right people.
True self-service BI
Users are able to create assets from scratch, manipulating data, adding the precise fields required for reports, enhancing those reports with on-screen filters with just a few clicks and much more. All without the need for expensive technical input.
Telling your data story
With so many charts and interactive features available, you can really hone-in on what’s important to your audience and bring the figures to life. Couple this with the capabilities of SAP Analytics Cloud, and it becomes even more powerful.
Next level strategic analytics
SAP Analytics Cloud is an all-in-one software as a service (SaaS) offering for BI, planning and predictive analytics. It offers full SAP BusinessObjects platform functionality with additional capabilities.

SAP BusinessObjects 4.3
The arrival of the latest version of SAP BusinessObjects BI (v4.3) marks a significant upgrade to the platform, including an enhanced interface and new user-friendly data modelling capabilities.
MHR provides expert input for all aspects of upgrading, including planning, migration, configuration, deployment and training. You no longer run the risk of using an unsupported version and can take full advantage of SAP’s latest functionality.
SAP now offers BusinessObjects Private Cloud Edition, providing the opportunity to move existing SAP BusinessObjects on-premise platforms to a private cloud environment.
Many existing BusinessObjects users will benefit from the additional capabilities within SAP Analytics Cloud. However, for larger organisations, migrating large quantities of existing BusinessObjects reports to Analytics Cloud at one time may not be practical. One option is a phased migration over time.
Through our SAP consultancy service, MHR can help assess the suitability of your current deployment method and explore change options, including cloud transition. Rather than just a ‘lift and shift’, this is often an ideal opportunity to modernise your setup, including rationalising inactive reports, creating new ones and moving to a better-fit license model.
BI, Analytics and Reporting Knowledge Transfer
We can deliver bespoke templates and development input to ensure your dashboards and reports are better aligned with organisational processes. Through our BusinessObjects Health Check, we will report on the current state of your SAP environment at each component level. You’ll get a list of recommendations of immediate changes to reflect best practice. We can also supply a training plan to address skills gaps and a roadmap of further actions mapped to organisational goals.
Our BusinessObjects formal training draws directly from our SAP partnership, utilising best practice. Training areas include:
Data Services - Unlocking and understanding SAP’s functionality for creating and executing batch jobs, and how to change the structure and formatting of data
Information Design Tool - Using the IDT to successfully create and deploy BusinessObjects Universes
Web Intelligence Reporting - Giving users the ability to design and distribute their own reports
Administration and Security - Managing content distribution, groups, users and objects, best practice guidance on server management, security-related tasks and configuration
