Fast “Closing Cockpit on Explorer” Demo

Do you need a super-fast and easy way to demo mobility and analytics for our Closing Cockpit data?  Check out the following directions to show a high level, 3 minute demo of Cockpit data on Explorer from your iPad or iPhone!

  1. Install SBO Explorer on your mobile device if you haven’t done so already.
  2. Login to SAP BusinessObjects BI on Demand:  Username:, PW: testdrive
  3. Page down until you see “Closing Cockpit Task Data.” Select it.
  4. Number of Tasks by Person Responsible will be presented on the graph.
  5. Suggested Demo;
    1. Change to Pie Chart
    2. FCC_CON and FCC_FIN have the majority of the tasks. Should we offload some of their tasks to others?  What sort of tasks are they performing?
    3. Filter on FCC_FIN’s tasks.  Most of this person’s tasks are job-related.  There are three manual transaction tasks.
    4. Drill on the 3 manual transaction tasks (15%).
    5. There are 2 manual carryforward tasks and one inter-unit elimination task.
  6. With additional data from one of the pre-delivered BW cubes, you could further analyze how much time these tasks take this user; are they being done in a timely manner; do they complete successfully, etc.

For a quick offline demo, iPad screenshots are also attached.

      Hi Sandy,

      I know this post is very old but I don't see the sample data under the demo logon any longer.  Is it possible to recreate?

      Dear Sandy,

      Thanks for the very interesting article. Can you please let us know how a customer can build the above report?

      Which are the pre-delivered BW cubes?
