The official word came this week, see Update on SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 General Availability, that SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.0 is scheduled to become generally available (GA) on Friday, September 16, 2011. I was installing BI4’s SP2 Patch 4 today and noticed the following “WaitForCMSForTheFirstTime” message.
Today wasn’t the first day I’ve waited for SAP BusinessObjects and I’m sure it won’t be the last. But I’m excited for the future and grateful for the hard work the various SAP BusinessObjects teams have put into getting this major release into customer hands. As luck would have it, this article is my 200th blog posting. I’m looking forward to writing many more postings about SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence.
