SAP BusinessObjects Search delivers innovative capabilities to bring the simplicity of search to the world of Business Intelligence, allowing users to search using the Search interface and retrieve, index, and deliver BI content, presentations, business content in documents, and web pages.
Search reduces the time and effort users spend finding the specific piece of data or report they need to answer their business questions. Simply by entering text into the search box within InfoView, users can quickly find relevant, categorized, and ranked sets of results from within their SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise system. Other search capabilities include document ranking based on frequency and position of use of the user’s search string, intelligent categorization of documents by relevant topics and type based on SAP BusinessObjects advanced semantics, and step-by-step refining of results based on a user selecting defined subsets of documents.
