This book is a great addition to your bookshelf, especially if your role is to recommend SAP BusinessObjects solutions to customers or coworkers. As a technology consultant that lives and breathes this stuff, most of the material was not new. However, I found the coverage of less-familiar topics like EPM and GRC very helpful. The book describes the current SAP BusinessObjects product landscape while looking ahead to the future roadmap. Despite the book's recent publication, it still reveals SAP's last-minute internal wrangling over product names. For example, the upcoming Web Intelligence 4.0 is referred to as Interactive Analysis (which I predict will be its name in BI 5.0) and "Advanced Analysis" (Pioneer) has been released as simply "Analysis". I enjoyed Chapter Two the most- "Business Objects: A Historical Perspective", which provides the colorful history of Business Objects from its founding in 1990 by Bernard Liautaud and Denis Payre to its acquisition by SAP to the present.
