Hi, welcome on HackingSAP.com!

My name is Xavier Hacking and I am an SAP BI consultant working at Interdobs. I have a background in Industrial Engineering and Management Science (MSc.). In 2022 I was recognized as an SAP Champion.

I work with all kind of SAP BI related tools, mostly with SAP Analytics Cloud, but also Analysis for Office, SAP BW, SAP HANA, SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and in the past SAP Lumira (Designer and Discovery edition) the SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform, Web Intelligence, Crystal Reports and of course Roambi and Xcelsius (#neverforget).


I published six books on several SAP BI tools. The most recent ones are about SAP Lumira, Discovery editionSAP Lumira, Designer edition and SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards. Once in a while I also write an article for the BI Expert online magazine and the Interdobs blog. I started HackingSAP.com in 2009 by the way.
