Business Objects Infoview Merged Dimensions Public

  1. 1. Business Objects Infoview Merged Dimensions Ease of Use Presentation by Bill Miller October 2008
  2. 2. Merging Dimensions <ul><li>You use the Merge Dimensions dialog box to synchronize data providers through common dimensions. When you merge dimensions, Web Intelligence creates a new merged dimension that you can use in your document. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Auto-Merge <ul><li>Note: If the document Auto-merge dimensions property is set, Web Intelligence automatically merges dimensions from the same universe, with the same name and with the same data type when you create a report. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Document Properties
  5. 5. Select Merge Dimensions
  6. 6. Merge Dimensions
  7. 7. Multiple Data Providers Merge <ul><li>Merged dimensions are a new concept in Web Intelligence R2. </li></ul><ul><li>Synchronizing data providers already exists in Desktop Intelligence/ Business Objects but it does not involve the creation of a new merged dimension. Business Objects reports use the original dimensions that make up a merged dimension in Web Intelligence. </li></ul><ul><li>You can use these original dimensions in a Web Intelligence report. When you place them in the report, Web Intelligence returns by default only those dimension values that have corresponding values in the data providers synchronized through the merge. You need to be aware of this when migrating reports from Desktop Intelligence and Business Objects because Business Objects/Desktop Intelligence behaves differently. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Example: Web Intelligence and Desktop Intelligence/Business Objects <ul><li>Behavior when dimensions are merged </li></ul><ul><li>You have a report with the following data providers: </li></ul><ul><li>data provider 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Country of origin Revenue </li></ul><ul><li>Germany 470 </li></ul><ul><li>Data provider 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Country of origin Revenue </li></ul><ul><li>Japan 499 </li></ul>
  9. 9. Web Intelligence and Desktop Intelligence/Business Objects <ul><li>If you include the Country of Origin dimension from Data Provider 1 and the Revenue measure from Data Provider 2 in the same block, Web Intelligence returns the following result: </li></ul><ul><li>Country of origin Revenue </li></ul><ul><li>Germany </li></ul>
  10. 10. Web Intelligence and Desktop Intelligence/Business Objects <ul><li>The same block in Desktop Intelligence/Business Objects returns the following result: </li></ul><ul><li>Country of origin Revenue </li></ul><ul><li>Germany </li></ul><ul><li>Japan 499 </li></ul><ul><li>The block is different in Desktop Intelligence/Business Objects because Business Objects extends the values of the Country of Origin dimension through the values returned by the Revenue measure. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Web Intelligence and Desktop Intelligence/Business Objects <ul><li>You can alter the Web Intelligence default behavior so that it corresponds with Desktop Intelligence/Business Objects behavior in this situation. </li></ul><ul><li>To extend dimension values in Web Intelligence: </li></ul><ul><li>1. Right-click your report outside any blocks or charts and select Document Properties on the shortcut menu. The Document Properties pane appears on the right side of the report. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Check the Extend merged dimension values option </li></ul>
