BusinessObjects Blog Series ….. continued

I started blogging about BusinessObjects integration with SAP NetWeaver some days back and didn’t find the time to continue the blogging series as wished. So I went through all the feedback I received and thought I give an “external committement” to continue and post a schedule about the upcoming topics.

The more important task / wish behind this is that I would like to hear from everyone which topics are of most interest and what the areas are that you would like to learn more about.

Here the existing blogs:



Part #1 : BusinessObjects and SAP Part I

Part #2 :BusinessObjects and SAP Part 2

Part #3: BusinessObjects and SAP Part 3

Part #4: BusinessObjects and SAP Part 4

Part #5: BusinessObjects and SAP Part 5




Here the proposed schedule :

      Hi Ingo,

      We have often seen members promise to blog on a weekly basis, never that detailed. As someone said, life is what happens while you are making other plans. I cross my fingers, that life is not catching up with you and your great plan.

      Nevertheless, people interested in a Business Object overview from an SAP perspective will find no better place than the sessions (some of them hands-on) provided by Ingo at the Community Day in Las Vegas:

      Thanks for hosting these, Mark.

      Hi Ingo,
      Can you throw some light on how security will work if we use BO Xcelsius dashboards can be deployed to SAP Enterrpise portal?
      How single signon can be used for this?

      There is one question on landscape requirements on BO side when integrated with SAP BW.
      BW has dev/QA and Prd. What about BO xcelsius side?

      when using BusinessObjects Enterprise and the SAP Integration Kit you can leverage the SAP Authenticatoin - including a SA Portal token and would be able to achieve SSO also with Xcelsius.
