Business Objects XI 3.0 : Dashboard (evaluating different options)
Presently we are evaluating different options to create dashboard which is visually appealing and have following features.
1. Suppose if we have following objects
Dimensions : Product, Customer
Measure : Sales Revenue , Rental Revenue
So Dash board Should Have a options to choose any dimension against any Measure i.e. a combo box or a radio button list which will allow user to see
u201CSales revenueu201D against u201CProductu201D or u201CCustomeru201D based on his inputs.
We need to provide some filter to user like Year, Month etc.
3. Drill Down.
User should be able to drill down if there is natural hierarchies. For example Year-> Month -> Day etc.
4. It needs to be visually appealing.
So we are thinking of evaluating following BO products
1. SAP BO Polestar
2. SAP BO Xcelsius Engage
3. SAP BO Dashboard
We would appreciate if anyone of you can comment on requirements and what is possible and what is not in particular tool. (We have Universe in place).
