BO Mobile Guide

I’d like to introduce the upcoming integration Business Object Mobile for blackberry/Smartphone/Mobile windows.

You all can find official documentation for installation and upgrade at SAP Service markeptplace

When should this solution be considered ?

When BI data from SAP BW and processed by xcelcius at Business object side, we can view report from mobile client (e.g. blackberry)

You can use Blackberry Enterprise Server for enterprise release or you can use MDS for simulate this solution.


What software will be required?

Server Side platform:

0.1. SAP EHP1 For SAP Netweaver 7.01 SP Level 5

0.2. Business Object Edge/Enterprises 3.1 or higher installed

0.3. SAP GUI installed at Server side

Additional Software


BO Mobile patching e.g. BOBJMOBILE02_0-20005104.EXE and BOBJMOBILE02_3-20005104.EXE 0.1.

based on your repository used ; MySQL/Oracle/MSSQL Server, in this blog i use MySQL 5.5 for our repository, so i need Java Connector for MySQL, you can download at www.mysql.com0.1.

Blackberry simulator for testing purpose BlackBerry_Simulators_4.6.0.266_9000.exe (free)0.1. For Push Data from blackberry, you can use Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) or MDS, in this case i use MDS for Blackberry Server 🙂

Here standard archicterure mostly used.
