Web Services Security
Discover the benefits and usage of web services within the SAP NetWeaver BI space to access BI Data. We'll focus on the web services that SAP provides to access BI data within the Enterprise Reporting, Query, and Analysis scenario. In addition, we'll show how to create your own web services within the SAP NetWeaver BI space to build additional functionality. Finally, we'll discuss how to consume these web services to build applications using tools such as Visual Composer or other 3rd party tools. The different scenarios we discuss will show how to combine BI Data as well as 3rd party information via web services in a composite framework using the Enterprise Service Oriented Architecture provided with the NetWeaver stack. The approaches discussed will focus on flexibility, extensibility, and TCO. Additionally, Web Services within BI provide flexibility when loading data into BI, but that is not the focus of this session.
