Some of you might be aware that up to this point I have written several books on the topics of how you as a customer can leverage the SAP BusinessObjects BI software together with SAP NetWeaver BW and SAP ERP.
In addition to the books I also started an iTunes Videopodcast to show in more visual way how you can leverage those two software packages in combination.
So what would be the next step ? Well, I thought it would be a great opportunity to combine the written information of a book with the visual appeal of a video and clearly delivered in an electronic way.
.. and since the release of iAuthor by Apple this is now possible in a very simple way to create interactive eBooks. In case you haven't seen some of the examples - take a look here on some example what this interactivity could mean.
So what are the upcoming books I am working on:
SAP BusinessObjects Analysis, edition for OLAP for SAP NetWeaver BW and SAP HANA
In this book I will outline what is required to leverage SAP BusinessObjects Analysis, edition for OLAP in combination with SAP NetWeaver BW and SAP HANA and outline in my usual step by step way how you can use the software.
SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.x with SAP HANA
In this book I will outline how you can leverage SAP BusinessObjects BI 4 in combination with a SAP HANA environment. The book will coverage topics like installation, configuration, user management, security, data connectivity, and how you can use the information in SAP HANA in the BI client products.
SAP BusinessObjects Analysis, edition for Application Design (ZEN)
In this book I will cover the new product SAP BusinessObjects Analysis, edition for Application Design (ZEN) and how you can use it to create a great dashboarding user experience in combination with SAP NetWeaver BW and SAP HANA as data source.
So the plan to finish these books is ..... TechED 2012 in Las Vegas.
..... and on some of them I am not alone and get help of some fellow mentors (more to be told later).
