SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise
What is SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise?
The BusinessObjects Enterprise is a business intelligence suite of software that comprises 4 core modules: Crystal Reports, Xcelsius/Dashboards, WebI (Web Intelligence), and Explorer. Developed and marketed by German firm SAP AG, BusinessObjects Enterprise is used by data analysts and business to handle, sort, and make sense of huge volumes of data and find opportunities in market trends, customer preferences, and investments.
The modules each perform a different task essential for the suite. Crystal Reports is the go-to application for designing and creating interactive reports. Xcelsius/Dashboards handle the interactive dashboard generation that allows businesses to visualize data in forms such as charts and graphs. Web Intelligence, or WebI, is a technology that automates ad hoc queries and the analysis of data in online and offline modes, while the Explorer modules is a powerful search function, enabling users to browse through business intelligence collected data – it uses an intuitive iTunes-like UI and displays results in chart form.
There are also additional modules in the newer versions of BusinessObjects Enterprise, such as InfoView, which allows the access of and the reading of reports, and Live Office, which integrates with Microsoft Office product like Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.
