Figure 2 is a screen shot of the many interactive videos included in this e-book. Ingo (and his voice) walks you through step by step on how to use the Analysis OLAP solution.
I was able to complete all the exercises in the book myself, and I learned about SAP BusinessObjects Analysis, edition for OLAP in this process. This being Ingo’s sixth book, it has his high usual quality standards.
This new eBook requires an iPad and you view it through iBooks. It works on my old iPad1. It is nice to be able to simply carry my iPad and not a heavy book. What is even nicer is that the screen shots in the eBook are in color. This, to me, makes it easier to read, follow and understand.
