Central Management Console 4.0: Create OLAP Connections to BW
OLAP Connections define connectivity from SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (BI) tools, such as Analysis, edition for OLAP, to SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (BW), via the Business Intelligence Consumer Services (BICS) connectivity. BICS connectivity is the recommended way for BI tools to connect to Business Explorer (BEx) queries residing within the SAP NetWeaver BW server. OLAP Connections can be created and saved using the Central Management Console (CMC) or the information design tool.
In this tutorial, you will create three OLAP Connections, using the CMC, to connect to a BW server, a cube in a BW server, and a BEx query based on a cube in a BW server.
