  • 2. Business Objects is a tool primarily supports Data Services ETL (Extraction, Transformation and Loading) Data Quality (Data Cleansing, data scrubbing, ) Data Federator (Abstraction Process) Data Profiling (Pre-processing of data, meta data Management ) Rapid Marts Ad hoc /Analysis Reports Canned Reports Interactive Dashboard Scorecards Publications, Mobile Reports Polestar, Data Lineage Analysis, Flex Based interactive reporting. Data Warehouse Business Intelligence Note – Business Objects delivers standard Business Content for SAP and Non-SAP in the form of Rapid Marts.

  • 4. - Intuitive zero foot print reporting. - Slice and Dice capability. - Multidimensional analysis on data cubes like from SAP BI Infocube. - Multiple data providers. - Ability to change data representation on Fly. - More useful for BI reports not suitable for operational reports.
  • 5. • Can't copy objects from one report to another even if the query/universe/context is identical. • Must resize the formula editor every time you use it (no minimize/maximize buttons on the window, no comments permitted and no word wrapping allowed. No search/replace either.) • Very low resolution on graphs when exported (optimized for screen display only and no easy way to optimize for printing) • Can only export to Excel or PDF and no other format • Can't open more than one report at a time otherwise the instability becomes intolerable. • Conditions and exceptions can’t be used from query directly. • Text variables /Replacement variables from query don't work directly in Web- Intelligence • User exit variables are not able to work directly in Web-Intelligence • No picture perfect reporting as in crystal reports used for operational reports.
  • 6. • Crystal Report Can copy objects from one report to another when the query/universe/context is identical. • Must resize the formula editor every time you use it (no minimize/maximize buttons on the window, no comments permitted and no word wrapping allowed. No search/replace either.) • Crystal reports can have Very high resolution on graphs when exported (optimized for screen display only and no easy way to optimize for printing) • Crystal Report be export to Excel or PDF or any other format • Crystal can open more than one report at a time. • Conditions and exceptions reporting is quite flexible in Crystal Report. • Text variables /Replacement variables from query don't work directly in Web- Intelligence but can work in Bex–Analyzer and Web dynapro which is tightly integrated with SAP BI modules. • User exit variables are not able to work directly in Web-Intelligence but work fine with Bex Analyzerand Web Dynapro. • No picture perfect reporting as in crystal reports used for operational reports.
  • 7. • Single edition and smaller installation footprint • used for operational reporting requirements more structured reporting like Balance Sheet, trail balance, daily close PNL (profit and loss reporting). • Flexible Report Layout and Page Orientation Options with Interactive Sorting, Saved Data Selections. • Formula/Field find and Duplicate Enhancement • Custom Cross-Tab Rows, Columns and Summaries (Earlier it was a limitation) • Dynamic interactive reporting using Flash/Xcelsius/Flex Integration (Flash animation objects to be embedded directly in the Crystal Reports) • Improve XML Export . Improve support for SAP as data source. • Enhance Support for Web-Based Data Sources and Crystal reports.com (Allowing for direct connection to your Sales force CRM data, XML Web services as Data Sources) • Hyper linking Wizard And many more…
  • 8. Connects to
  • 9. - Non Intuitive reporting. - Less dynamic slice and dice capability. - Less intuitive representation of hierarchical data.Level of hierarchy. - Less suitable for multi-dimensional reporting - Band based reporting structure header, footer, summary and detail section. New non band based reporting structure have emerged. - More later….
  • 10. What can replace Crystal Reports 2008 Limitations? • Unlike crystal WebI has intuitive reporting. • WebI has better dynamic Slice and dice capability. • Bex-Analyzer has better support for User Exits , replacements and text variables. • Web-dynapro better support for fetching CRM data. • Xcelcius has more dynamic interactive reporting.
  • 11. Query Level • Synchronize multiple data providers • Utilization of @ variables @prompt , etc. • Cooked Tables , use of Aggregate awareness. • More later.. Report Level • # multi-value multiple value for break • Fold option in WebI • #error, #sync, • Formatting issue with graphs like drill down hierarchy in Graphs. • More later…
  • 12. Use Aggregates for measures Use Partitions for high volume fact tables Index Awareness
  • 13. • More intuitive interactive dynamic Flex/Flash based reporting. • Can be created integrated with Excel/crystal report interfaces. • More intuitive controls like slider for data input, linked graphs, maps etc. • Offline interactive capability.
  • 14. Connects to
  • 15. Limitations of Xcelsius
  • 16. What can replace Xcelsius Limitations?
  • 17. Note - According to SAP , we can overcome the limitations of S AP Universes by integrating Business Objects with Information Management (Data Services) .
  • 18. • @ variables • Aggregate awareness • @user, @prompt at universe level • Cooked table • Context and duplicate • better tuned SQL query like equal to instead of like in formed SQL.
  • 19. SAPR3 BO- Central Management Console SAPBW Authentication Integration Role Import Manually SAP ROLES Access Levels Standard Content Full Schedule View on Demand View General Application System SAP Custom BO GROUPS (Bringing SAP Roles to BO environment as groups)
  • 20. • SAP BO uses  Enterprise  LDAP  Windows NT  Windows AD  SAP Authentication • SAP BO converts SAP Roles into BO groups. • SAP BO has standard access levels Full Schedule View View On Demand • SAPBO also gives a facility to create Custom Access Level using General, System, Application, Content . Security Mode ApplicationUser SecurityGroupAccess level Pre Requisites • User should be created and mapped to group. • Create Access level and provide restriction to Access level.
  • 21. SAP BO uses •  Enterprise •  LDAP •  Windows NT •  Windows AD •  SAP Authentication SAP BO converts SAP Roles into BO groups. SAP BO has standard access levels • Full • Schedule • View • View On Demand SAPBO also gives a facility to create Custom Access Level using General, System, Application, Content .

  • 22. How SAP BO Security Model is associated with Business Warehouse?
  • 23. SAP Business Objects Business Intelligence Landscape - ERP system (SAP / non SAP) with Non SAP DWH & SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse
  • 24. • System Repository (SR) Contains Semantic Layer, Reports, Users, Groups, etc • Audit Repository (AR)  Contains Metadata • Performance Management repository(PR)Contains metrics for the scorecard Note - Import Wizard Development Staging Production Import Wizard Import Wizard .BIAR .BIAR
