I can't express how much I've relied on all of you folks through this forum. I suspect there are a lot of others out there that use this forum as resource but may not feel comfortable or experienced enough to offer up solutions.
As my organization tries to navigate the myriad of new tools available I firmly believe BODS will remain our most important prem to prem ETL solution for a while yet, so hopefully there will be a replacement to this forum. If so I will attempt to step up my posting game. The loss of this resource will be felt.

Thanks to all for sharing your knowledge over the years.

Perhaps it's a sign we should look for BO alternatives.
I've been interacting with the Forum since 2003.
What reasons can everyone point to that makes you keep BO around? For us, it is the only tool that can filter and send to many recipients using publications. It also handles logins using SAP Roles/LDAP and it's easy to use @Variable('BOUSER') to control what a user sees.
I'd like to hear what you think BO does that other tools can't/don't.

It's been a good run for this Forum! Thanks for all the help Gurus.

The big thing for us is tracking of user activity. The state requires us to keep track of when users view (open) various documents we keep. Also a number of our users need to keep a history (like for five years) of reports. Unfortunately we only use a small subset of the capabilities of the platform.

Does it all get archived away? Or does it disappear after August 20?

It would be sad for it to disappear. I was the QA manager and a PM for a bunch of releases.

I still am trying to explain AGGREGATE_AWARE to people today.

If ever you want to do an AMA, I would be happy to do that, and explain where the audit universe came from, why we had to go from Web 1 to WebI 2 so fast, or why WebI 2.6 was the best release ever...
