BusinessObjects 4.0 reporting on top of SAP SSM 10

We have been exploring all the integration capabilities between SAP Business Objects 4.0 and SAP Strategy Management  10.0.  We have prepared a step by step guide in this post: Providing SSM data to SAP BusinessObjects reporting tools – Exhausting all scenarios

The only thing we have not being able to implement (after many hours spent) are:

  • Using SMDataServiceService and CubeServiceService Web Services to make data available for Xcelsius/Dashboards. We got an error when inserting the WSDL and we tried by all ways to make Xcelsius capable to understand it.
  • To use ODBO provider for making data available for Crystal Reports. By following SAP manual, we have not managed to make it work because of errors.

Does anybody being able to deal with these integration options? Any feedback would be welcome!

      Hi Sergi

      Back under V7.5 I played with this can got the Cube Services working and delivered data to Xcelsius Not all the services worked as documented, but about half of them did. I have not tried under version 10 so can't know if it is now broken. One point I remember confusion because the source had to be defined using the SSM connection name rather than the PAS cube name.
