Schmidt Ink, inc. History

We started in the financial district in New York City in 1993. We had a different name then, Schmidt Interactive Software. At this time, we created financial systems and trading models. The financial district is very competitive and only the companies that provide the highest quality systems survive.

We started using Business Objects when BusinessObjects 4.0 was released (The first time: around 1996). We created reports and universes to support clients in many different industries on the Eastern United States. Much of our knowledge was inherited from our financial system development. At this time, there was very little documentation on Business Objects applications, so we spent much time exploring and inspecting the applications.

We wrote our first book on Business Objects with the title: Introduction to ReportScript. ReportScript was a scripting language very similar to VBA. This book was a natural for us, because we were already great at programing languages. This book launched us into the spotlight, and we continue to author books and training manuals to this day.

In order to write effective training and books, we need to be in the field developing solutions. This is why, we continue to consult and train, where we are continuously challenged to develop new techniques and styles.

Our Business

For years Business Objects was our only business. However, if a company wants to stay competitive in Business Intelligence, then that company must also be efficient data warehouse designers and ETL developers.

Our Business Objects expertise has been trusted by our clients for over a decade. These clients include Citibank, JP Morgan Chase, Alcoa, Mars, CareFusion, DirecTV, Dow Chemical Company, Biogen Idec, Hewlett Packard, Medtronic, and many other large companies.

Web Intelligence Training

We have finished creating our Business Objects Web Intelligence training and it is the best training course that we have developed.

We’ve trained 100’s of classes in our training center, onsite at clients, and virtually. We’ve even developed online e-Training. With all of this training experience, we still struggled to create the best course available for Web Intelligence – until now.

We have developed the course so that the instructor can focus on teaching how the product works, and not how to transition from one topic to the next. The course contains hundreds of examples that illustrate a focused Web Intelligence technique. For example, when studying applying report filters, the students open a document that is pre-configured with the report structures and data. The student simply applies the filter, without trying to populate a document and create the report structures.

Populating the document with data and creating report structures are topics in the class, but when discussing report filters they are not. This allows the student to learn how to apply report filters and creates an environment where the topic can be fully explored.
