I am happy to announce the availability of my second book with SAP Press. This time I am focusing on the end user consuming and creating the BI reports and analytics with tools, such as Crystal Reports, Web Intelligence, BusinessObjects Explorer, Pioneer, Dashboard Manager, and Xcelsius.
In the beginning of the book I am creating a set of requirements from different departments and then match those requirements with the tools that are the best fit, but also outline those tools that won’t fit and why they won’t fit.
I then go chapter by chapter into each of those tools into more details and use concrete examples, such as a Balance Sheet for Crystal Reports, a Sales Report for Web Intelligence, and a Executive dashboard for Xcelsius to provide you with step by step instructions on how to use the tools.
If you are interested to see this approach you can take a look at this preview chapter which also provides you the complete table of content.
In this sample chapter I outline the requirements and match the tools from BusinessObjects to those requirements.
