I am not one to spread rumors, but I thought I might pass this little one along to see if anyone has any experience that could confirm it. Anyway, my little rumor is…
Initial tests running the Business Objects XI R2 (BOXI R2 or XIR2) web client through Internet Explorer 8 have failed miserably. Reports are that it is unusable. Unfortunately, my sources haven’t told me whether this applies to InfoView, WebI Report Reader, or Web Intelligence Java Report Panel.
If you have any experience with Windows 7 and Business Objects, please leave a comment. The more information we have the better.
Be Prepared – Windows 7 is Just Around the Corner
IF this is true, then BO administrators need to know as soon as possible. Microsoft has already put Windows 7 in release candidate status (link) and so we can assume that it could release as early as October or November 2009 and shipping simultaneously on new PCs.
