BOBJ Server Access with No License Fees!

*Windows Server 2016 hosted environment required ($21 USD / mo)

Have you ever wanted a personal private SAP Business Objects server to practice Web Intelligence (Webi) and other Business Objects applications? Well, now you can easily set up your very own! This tutorial steps you through the process of creating your very own SAP Business Objects trial server in the cloud so you can practice your skills anywhere, anytime.

You’re responsible for manually extending your trial every 30 days (don’t worry, it’s easy, I’ll show you how in the tutorial). Failure to extend your trial may result in your Business Objects environment being locked down and impossible to log in to.
As long as you stay on top of extending your trial, you’re free to enjoy perpetual FREE Business Objects access to improve upon your skills! All you need to pay for is hosting (very affordable).

I’ll guide you step by step through the system configuration process. It’s very daunting so I highly recommend you follow the steps as outlined in the videos as one wrong SAP entry could require a complete system rebuild.

So if learning how to quickly set up your very own private Business Objects server excites you, this is definitely the course for you!  I’ll see you on the inside!

  • What version of Business Objects?

    Version 4.3

  • How does this type of trial system compare to other paid shared Business Objects servers?

    There’s no comparison. Don’t waste your time and money paying for SAP shared or private server access. These companies throw hundreds of users onto the same system and charge upwards of $1000 USD for monthly access. Paying for shared access makes it difficult to practice as there is little to no quality control. Imagine that you’ve been working on a huge project only to find that another user has been modifying your reports. It can be incredibly frustrating as you have no way to stopping this behavior. Not to mention frequent server crashing and poor performance. That’s why we recommend you keep everything private on your own system to maximize your learning experience.

  • How long will I get access to the course?

    Lifetime access!

  • Cloud Hosting?

    We require that you use a hosted Windows Server (2016 Edition) through a highly recommended host. This also gives you the ability to take your Business Objects environment anywhere you have an internet connection! The hosting fee is around $20 USD / mo.
