Since that BusinessObjects platform has integrate the SAP Business Intelligence platform so many people asked me about what tool should be recommend for a given user. I decided to start first on this topic and go forward with it providing a initial understanding about SAP BusinessObjects front end portfolio.
For a better reading the figure below shows a simple distribuition of each solution having 3 types of business user:
Executive & Managers: People that really don’t have much time to expend reading detailed reports or performing ad-hoc queries or deeper analysis. Dashboard, scorecards and alerting are common. For these audience often minus is more.
Casual Users: People that need to consume information ready to be used from data marts or data warehouse through standard and formatted reports in some cases available in the enterprise portal. Usually have powerful report authoring demands.
Analysts: People that need such functionality to discover deviances, trends or any sort of changed behavior on the corporate information through an interactive viewing capability. Standard reports and dashboards or even pre-built queries often will not fit their needs for deeper analysis.
Low Touch Information Consumer: People that usually has no time and consolidate information (eg. KPI) will tell much.
High Touch Information Expert: People that will use detailed information on day-by-day operation to support further Executive & Manager’s decision making.With this concept in mind we can move forward in the next blogs to provide you useful information that will enable you understand SAP BusinessObjects BI suite and how you can explore the best capabilities of each product.
I would really appreciate suggestions for further blogs and would like to hear what is of most interest to people. I will then try to provide the information in the form of a short blog entry. Stay tuned for more on SAP BusinessObjects BI suite.
