Trying out Integration Option for Microsoft Sharepoint with BusinessObjects
A fellow employee attended Eventful’s SharePoint conference this year, and asked about Integration Option for MS SharePoint (IOMS) with BusinessObjects. We installed it as a trial last week. See below for observations.
After logging on to MS SharePoint 2010, this is the out of the box screen (using Internet Explorer 8):

I am sure using standard MS SharePoint functionality you can customize by changing the announcements.

Figure 2: Inbox
The inbox you can share and e-mail reports, as shown above, and click on the report and it will display the report
Figure 3 shows the Crystal Report displayed from the inbox
Figure 4 shows you can search for a report
Figure 5 shows the results of the “sales” search
Figure 6 shows the embedded help
Figure 7 shows the Report Repository – this should look familiar like your BI4 repository
More to come!
MS SharePoint provides a familiar interface to many users.
did you have to do any SWNCONFIG for the integration to work?
I don't know - I didn't do the installation. Our DBA did. He followed the install guide from help.sap.com
