SAP Business Warehouse for the BusinessObjects Community Episode 4

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the next episode in our Diversified Semantic Layer podcast series about Business Warehouse for the BusinessObjects community.  Once again I’m joined by Ethan Jewett, a fellow SAP Mentor.

In this episode, we connect to our new Bex query using many of the BusinessObjects tools, including Web Intelligence, Crystal Reports and Dashboard Designer (Xcelsius).  We finish up by walking through creating a multi-source universe on top of the Multiprovider, which will allow us to query BW from Visual Intelligence and Explorer.

Our next episode will continue on optimising and explaining different features of BW.

We hope you enjoy watching.

  • Fantastic stuff….and you guys had fun.

    Question: when Dashboard connect through query panel, can you do direct preview of output, or do you have to export to SAP portal as in Xcelsius 2008 BICS connection ?

    Thanks.  Looking forward to more…

    • Hi Peter,

      In BI4 SP4 and above, you now do not need to send the dashboard to SAP portal to view the data.  But that is for Xcelsius 2011, not 2008.

      Hope that helps, and thanks for your feedback!
