Ingo Hilgefort SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform 4.x with SAP Netweaver covers more than just BI 4.x. It includes BI 4.0 Feature Pack 3 and BusinessObjects Analysis, MS Edition for Office, which is platform independent. It contains over 180+ more pages than his excellent first edition book “Integrating SAP BusinessObjects XI 3.1 Tools with SAP NetWeaver.
For most of the book the author assumes you are using the BI 4.x platform but you could also use it with BusinessObjects Analysis MS Edition for Office and Crystal Reports 2011. Included are steps to install the software and helpful charts of data connectivity options with ERP, NetWeaver, HANA with actionable steps. Ingo explains what is missing in the software as well.
This is Ingo’s fifth book and as always contains his high quality standards.
BI 4.x is SAP’s biggest release in BusinessObjects history and if you are an SAP customer using BusinessObjects software or considering the use of BusinessObjects for your BI needs this book is a “must-have” for your bookshelf.
I also recommend the online version so you can easily “search” what you need to know.
