Information Delivery & Discovery or IDD as it is frequently referred to can be thought of as the middle section of the SAP BusinessObjects BI stack. The two sections that sandwich it are Data Services and Enterprise Performance Management.
So what is Web Intelligence and what can it do? We’ve created a short video of a live Web Intelligence demo. The video covers creating a new query, a table, a pie chart, a cross-tabulation, a calculation within a variable and an alert, drilling on a chart and then down through a product hierarchy in a table, finishing by creating a section.
SAP BusinessObjects Explorer is an exciting Business Intelligence data discovery tool. We’ve created a short live demo video entitled Fast Executive Data with SAP BusinessObjects Explorer. The Explorer tool is excellent for non-technical business managers that want to gain insight into their data. The data made available for analysis is provided via a SAP BusinessObjects universe. The universe can be based on SAP BW or relational data platforms such as MS SQLServer. Features include Google style key word searches on your BI data and data slicing.
SAP BusinessObjects Explorer is currently available in two flavours. The first is as an add-on to SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise and the second is packaged with BWA on a blade.
The pre-requisite for analysis is for a Space Creator to set up an Information Space based on a SAP BusinessObjects universe and then index the data. This is not a complex task. Once this is done the business user can immediately find data insights. You can see this in operation in our live demo video below.
