BI Content Search

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.

Biography – Russell Beech, Founder of BI System Builders & Cornerstone Solution®

I architect data solutions and superintend the solutions that I architect. I build teams that are usually a mix of full-time employees and sub-contractors. I ensure mentoring and knowledge transfer. The emergence of big data has opened the door to a rise in interest in predictive analytics aka machine learning. For me the technology changes have provided the opportunity to architect data solutions which combine my enterprise data warehousing experience with data lake concepts and to apply my knowledge of statistics to that data to deliver predictive analytics. To that end I’m putting work into understanding how the evolving technologies hook in to each other. I have a focused interest in learning about big data technologies such as Hadoop, Hive, GCP BigQuery and machine learning and their integration/virtualization with the enterprise data warehouse.
