Announcement: SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform Pattern Books Launch

Hi Everyone,

It is with great pleasure that I officially announce the launch of the first phase of the BI Platform Pattern Books:

The initial Pattern Book provides detailed step by step instructions on how to deploy SAP BusinessObjects BI platform 4.0 Feature Pack 3 into a real-world system landscape for both Red Hat and SUSE Linux.

Deploying BI platform in the real world.

You can deploy the platform entirely on one machine using the bundled database, Enterprise authentication mechanism, and application server. This allows you to quickly set up an environment to develop and test BI content and to familiarize your organization with the system’s capabilities.   However, most production deployment scenarios are more complex and configured for increased security, scalability, and redundancy. They also need to integrate with a organization’s existing IT infrastructure.

In a real-world scenario, you may need to:

  • Configure your company’s existing software, such as application and database servers to work with BI platform.
  • Install and configure BI platform software on multiple machines for scalability and redundancy
  • Integrate with your company’s existing security infrastructure.

The detailed setup requirements differ for each particular combination of operating systems, application server vendors, and database vendors.  SAP provides detailed instructions for predominant production deployments.  A specific deployment combination is called a pattern.

See http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/SAP+Business+Intelligence+Platform+Pattern+Books

The second book we plan on delivering the in coming months is a pattern for Windows server landscapes.

If you have any questions about this initiative please feel free to contact me.

Thanks,

Henry

      Hi Chandrakanth,

      It is still being worked on right now.  Most of the content has been drafted but it still needs to be edited and we need to do some validation testing.

      This is very good news. And as mentioned above It would be great if you'll publish pattern books on other platforms (e.g. Windows).
