  1. Can we download the video demos? They are very useful.

    If there’ll be a Chinese version, it’ll be great.

    Our competitor BQ will promote their mobile solution to one of our OEM partner on Jan 2011, I wish to send our demo to our OEM partner on Dec, 2010.

  2. Under the Account/System required prompt, what should I enter there? I have the corporate server info but not sure what to put in the System field.

    Any help will be appreciated.


  3. I installed Explorer on my iPhone against SAP BW that has the BW Accelerator implemened against it. One of the coolest apps SAP has delivered. Did this come out of Walldrof? Or Palo Alto? Reporting on > 6 million rows of sales data in sub second from the iPhone. WOW!!

    This is taking mobile Business Intelligence to a new level.

    1. Jeff,

      Thanks! (note to others: just in case you were wondering, I can see from Jeff’s email that he’s not an SAP employee! He works at a company that has been using BusinessObjects for a long, long time)

      It’s truly a transnational effort — the BW Accelerator came out of SAP in Germany, Explorer and the iPhone app out of BusinessObjects in Paris (, and the whole thing was coordinated out of Palo Alto.
