Hi, we’re using Salesforce now (I know, it’s awful). Anyway, we successfully connected to Salesforce from B.O. about 2 years ago, but did nothing with it. But the connection was successful, and I created a quick report.
Now I know a little more about Salesforce, and I’m like WHY NOT? You can connect to it, so what the heck?
The current plan is to use Salesforce-Einstein which is a fancy dashboards tool. But that requires ETL’ing data from SF into Einstein, and that’s massive overhead. Tableau is now owned by SF, but that integration is going to be down the road, although they have renamed Einstein to Tableau CRM.
Anyway, it just seems to me you could use Business Objects effectively with Salesforce.
Does anyone have any experience?
Here’s some Business Objects resources, so they have made an attempt at this. But so far I haven’t found anyone who’s done it.
