Hi All

In this article we will share with you a success story of one of our SAP BI project using SAP Business Objects 4 over SAP BW 7.1

Customer: SAP Customer running SAP Best Practice

Users: Over 50 Business Intelligence users

Project scope:

  1. Implementation of the SAP BI Best Practice with COPA,PP,MM,FI,SD,PUR,IV,PS
  2. Enchantment of Info Objects Material, Customer , SD & COPA BI modules
  3. Implementation of Organizational KPI’s for 6 business  areas 


The Data warehouse is SAP BW, Front end tools is SAP Business Objects 4 web intelligence for management /analysis reports + crystal reports 2011 for transactional reports

BW-We have 2 SAP BW 7.1 landscapes: BW Dev acting also as BW QA and BW Production

BO-We have 2 SAP Business Objects landscapes – BO Dev , BO Prod

Authorization concept:

The authorization module includes 3 tiers

Tier1– Data level security coming from SAP BW

Tier2-SAP Business Objects web intelligence technical tool functionality (authorization over what kind of buttons and functionality the BO Webi will present for each user)

Tier3– SAP Business Objects control on the list of folders available for each user


Training method  was” train the trainer”- we have trained the Customer IT personal , they are responsible for User training.


1.We are the first service companies in the local market who went live with a full SAP BI project using SAP BW & SAP Business Objects 4, we had couple of problems with query performance, which eventually was stable after enhancement of SAP Notes , BO system tuning and last but not least we have established several of key development procedures for Business Object reporting over SAP BW Query as semantic layer.

2.There was several of Web intelligence functionality that wasn’t working over BW, some of them we have developed workaround, some of them reported to SAP and will be fixed in FP3 and future development 


Project went live as scheduled, SAP Business Objects reporting went live and kicking, good SAP support from SAP locally and globally
