Very helpful course. Unlike other courses I have attended, the trainer was flexible and had expertise that enabled him to address any Business Objects related query and give advice related to our organisation's specific universes. I had used Business Objects before but learnt lots of shortcuts and will now be able to work more efficiently.
The course and the trainer were both good. I didn't feel it needed to be a full day course, as we finished mid-afternoon. The resources were excellent. To be made even better the course could be tailored to the applicability of the tools/skills to John Lewis in particular - even just some suggestions along these lines would make the course more helpful. Unfortunately there seem to be some technical issues with using the java version of Business Objects within the John Lewis systems. This is not a fault of the training but the compatibility of the content with our systems capacity should be checked by a JL expert so this can be addressed.
The course covered the relevant areas and certainly provided me with the knowledge to be able to use Business Objects. The only caveat was that the pace of the course felt a little slow and as an experienced data analyst, navigating through Business Objects was pretty straightforward and believe the course could have been delivered in half the time for experienced analysts.
