It seems like just yesterday, but it’s actually been one year since we weathered the Web Intelligence certificate expiration crisis, better known as WebiJavaGeddon (see related article, Never Let a Serious Crisis Go to Waste). I wrote something a year ago and it seems to be worth repeating, ahead of SAP’s BI Strategy and Direction Webcast next Tuesday (see related article, The Future of the SAP BI Platform, Again).
If SAP had any doubts…, it should now be acutely aware that Web Intelligence is of profound importance to many of its business intelligence customers. And while customers and partners are grateful for innovations like SAP HANA and Lumira, we still need SAP to be passionately committed to what they probably refer to as “legacy” tools.
What are your memories of WebiJavaGeddon?
