Web Intelligence reports over bex: Best design practices
It has been quite some time since I have been working with building WebI reports based on Bex queries and I am still trying to guage the value add that customers derive from webI over Bex.
In traditional data warehousing systems, Web Intelligence works perfect and has been able to provide a self service reporting system for the users.
With Bex, the most of the self service features are already fulfilled. Is Business Objects destined to be just a presentation layer over the Bex queries?
With BO 4.0 and the subsequent BICS connectivity, many features of Bex become limited as do the features of WebI.
I came upon a discussion already
which discusses this issue but I would like to get some views and understanding on the advantages I can communicate to the customer that web intelligence has over bex.
Thanks and regards,
