They have these 2 hotels listed as conference price hotels.
    Hyatt Place Nashville Downtown
    Sheraton Nashville Downtown Hotel

is there a preferred one? typically I like staying where everyone stays.

I'm thinking about either going to this conference or the Sapphire in Orlando ... being a BO admin and BODS admin, would you expect a better experience from the Nashville ASUG conference vs the Sapphire in May. I've been to a Sapphire about 5 years ago, and it didn't have a lot to offer for the BO world. I'm not sure if the Sapphire has gotten better for BO users in the last 5 years.

Thanks,
Terance

Hey Dan, probably not going to see you at either this year
too bad, nashville does sound like lot of fun

as mentioned earlier (and i think there's other threads on this topic)
both conferences are great, i'll even throw in the recently completed BI20xx conferences

SAPHIRE is more for ERP and managment types, although there is a nice analytics track ... it's big ... think oracleworld big

the ASUG conference is much smaller, but much more concentrated on the analytics, (IMHO) more approprate for BOBJ admins

In addition to what's being said, Sapphire is more "forward looking". It is a conference where you can find out the Product Roadmap, what new features are coming out, and what new solution that your company can use. New solution like the BusinessObjects Cloud and the new SAP Cloud Platform (a re-branding of SAP HANA Cloud Platform). BOC and SCP are the direction SAP is moving to. Whether you are going to use it or not, it is important to be familiar with them.

Last but not least, you can talk face-to-face with the Product Team at Sapphire. They may or may not come to the smaller ASUG conferences due to travel budget constraint. Just something to think about if that is important to you.

Personally, I have to attend Sapphire, primarily because of the networking opportunity, with SAP management/product team, and with other developers from other companies. The knowledge sharing and collaboration are priceless in my humble opinion.

Since you are a BOBJ Admin, you might be interested in the BI 4.2 SP4, which should be covered at Sapphire. However, you can also learn about it by attending the ASUG BI Platform SIG webcasts, if you are an ASUG member.

Hope this helps.


P.S. By the way, the Call for Speakers for the BI+Analytics Conference will end by next Friday 3/24/2017. Please submit your abstract if you have not done so. icon_smile.gif

I haven't been to SAPPHIRE, so I can't comment on it. The ASUG conference is very focused on the BI side of SAP. It's good for people who don't use other SAP products.

I also like the BIXXXX conferences from SAP Insider. Great content, and very well organized.

I'm going. I am also conducting a pre-conference hands on workshop covering creating HANA calculation views and then connecting Web Intelligence to them.
