Testimonials

“We have a large installation of Business Objects with 4000+ reports across versions 5.x, 6.x and XI R1. When we looked at the option of planning for the Business Objects upgrade to the XI R3 platform the very first step we felt we had to undertake was to consolidate the existing environment. Hexaware provided exactly what we needed from the meta data angle and we completed the assessment of the entire environment in a 4 weeks timeframe, including reports in distributed desktops, by applying the tool. Hexaware saved us time, money and above all provided a more accurate means to de-duplicate and consolidate reports.” Project Manager-Leading Airline, UK
