Business Objects users: Deski and Boxi will retire, 31 July 2016.

Posted in: Business Objects

Deski (Release 3 Business Objects or BOXI) will not be available after 31 July 2016.  From 1 August onwards you will need to run reports in Webi Release 4.  It will not be possible to open old release 3 Deski/BOXI reports after 31 July.

Actions you need to take before 31 July:

  • If you have reports that you are keeping for historic purposes you should save these as Excel or PDF documents in one of your network folders.
  • Check your converted reports once conversion is completed.  If you have saved reports for conversion but have not heard from us at all please email
  • Please make sure that you can login into Webi and are comfortable with using the new environment before 31 July. You can get help or register for a training course, on the Business Objects training page.

If you have any questions, issues or problems, please email
