SAP BI 4.2 is out, and supporting more platforms like Linux and databases including HANA. If you're already feeling behind on BusinessObjects monitoring, you're not alone. Most of our subscribers who operate BI expressed concerns and challenges in managing availability, performance, and alerts from an enterprise perspective. According to SAP's latest comments on this issue via SCN blog.
“Properly deploying your SAP BusinessObjects BI4 or SAP Lumira landscape involves more than punching some numbers into a calculator and installing the right number of servers. Approaching this from a BI systems perspective means understanding how your BI system works and making intelligent decisions to ensure good system performance and stability.”
