The material on Web Intelligence will also prove helpful as numerous new features have been added to bring the product closer to a full-client analytical tool. It should be noted that the book does not cover BO Data Services, nor does it provide in-depth material on deployment (Windows, UNIX, etc.), server architecture or performance tuning, but this is largely due to the intended target audience. If you are a BO universe designer, or a business analyst relying on BO 4.0 to provide business intelligence, this will certainly become a well-thumbed reference in your library.
SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0: The Complete Reference is a book that almost did not get published. The SAP BusinessObjects product portfolio is substantially larger than the one that was covered in the first edition nearly 10 years ago, which creates challenges for any author. From the book's introduction, "The Complete Reference brand does not imply the complete SAP BusinessObjects product line, but rather, a complete reference for certain modules... We have tried to focus the content of the book primarily on what business application designers, business analysts, and power users need to know. Software engineers and system administrators were not the intended audience for this book". The 752-page book is organized into four parts: Getting Ready for Business Intelligence (3 chapters), Universes and the Information Design Tool (twelve chapters), Reporting and Analysis (seven chapters), and Dashboards and More (six chapters).
While the book is excellent from start to finish, what really sets it apart are twelve chapters devoted to the Information Design Tool, the semantic layer design tool that replaces the classic Designer tool (now known on the BI 4.0 platform as the Universe Design Tool). SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0: The Complete Reference is the best published resource for universe design with the Information Design Tool. My favorite chapter is chapter 13, Design Principles: Where to Put the Intelligence, which helps the reader understand the tradeoffs between placing intelligence in the database, the universe, or the report. The book also covers lifecycle management (known on the BI 4.0 platform as Promotion Management and Version Management), how multiple designers can use the project synchronization features of the Information Design Tool, and maintaining and monitoring the universe once it has gone into production.
I've been well served by having Cindi Howson's books on my shelf for the past decade. If you use the Information Design Tool, Web Intelligence or Dashboards on a regular basis, you'll appreciate having this book on your shelf. It's available in both paperback and Kindle formats.
I like how she covers universe documentation, integrity and quality assurance. There is also a chart on all of the releases of Web Intelligence, including DeskI. This book includes information I haven't seen covered any where else.
This book is really good, Its a must have in any BO library
