For successful implementations expertise in supporting and enabling technologies is equally important as subject matter expertise. Since the very beginning CALEO has been specialized on the implementation of corporate finance solutions with SAP products.
Partnerships with SAP and SAP BusinessObjects contribute to CALEO’s outstanding technical expertise.
With the acquisition of BusinessObjects SAP extended its software portfolio for the creation of consolidated financial statements. The portfolio now contains solutions for companies of every type and every size.

The takeover of BusinessObjects by SAP created a unique solution portfolio. SAP and BusinessObjects are a perfect match: While SAP dominates the data warehousing market BusinessObjects has been very strong in terms of visualization and user interaction.
|Business Intelligence & Data Warehousing|

The existing SAP and BusinessObjects solutions will be integrated even tighter in future. The upcoming combined OLAP client with codename “Pioneer” is a major step along the road.
SEM-BPS was the first planning solution which SAP initially developed as add-on for SAP BW. After the integration into SAP BW and the introduction of SAP Netweaver 7.0 the technological successor BI-IP is being offered as a replacement for SEM-BPS by SAP. BI-IP is more focused on the user and supports the integration of reporting and planning processes. More information
The SAP Netweaver 7.0 platform contains a J2EE enterprise portal which can be used to integrate various applications (SAP as well as non-SAP) into a single web-based application. All SAP-technology based applications (such as SEM-BCS or BW) integrate seamlessly into the portal. For SBO Enterprise XI specialized integration kits provide this functionality.
SAP Netweaver Portal technology can be used to build corporate finance portals which enable centralized access to all finance applications across the organization.
