I was recently asked the following very pertinent question:
“I want to learn the Business Objects reporting tool. Where can I start to learn and gain experience?”
from Orkun K. Yuna
While I try to answer all questions I receive, some are so basic that I don’t really know where to start. This one was asked through leaving a comment on an article that wasn’t really related to the question. This question seems quite important and should have a simple answer, the trouble is that I don’t know the answer beyond pointing Orkun to a training class or a self-paced training manual (like those listed here).
The problem with these suggestions are two-fold. (1) How does the student get their hands on the Business Objects Client Tools (Designer and Desktop Intelligence, which are not licensed)? (2) How can a student get the client tools and some training materials for free?
If anyone has any suggestions please reply to this post. Let’s all help answer Orkun’s excellent question.
