More InformationXcelsius Integration
You can use BEx queries or query views as data sources for visualizations (dashboards) that you create using SAP BusinessObjects Xcelsius Enterprise. You open the queries and query Vvews with the BEx Open Dialog in Xcelsius. In the Data Manager, the area of Xcelsius that organizes data connections, there is a new connection: SAP NetWeaver BI connection. It is possible to create a visualization (Dashboard) with multiple SAP NetWeaver BI connections from a BI system. The visualizations are saved using the BEx Save Dialog on the BI server and can be transported and translated like BI objects. Navigation in the data is reduced to filters and variables. Unlike the analysis table in the BEx Web Applications, the table in the visualization is static.

New BlogsBetter Performance For Universe-Based Access To BW

SQL Access to BW via Data Federator
In another blog, a number of improvements have been discussed regarding universe-based access to BW infoproviders. One major new option is that it is now possible to access BW infoproviders via SQL. Technically, this has been achieved via Business Objects's Data Federator (DF) that includes SQL engine running on top of federated data sources - one of those can be a BW 7.01 system. This blog provides some more insights into that approach. Mar. 6, 2009
Faster Universe-Based Access To BW via MDX
Business Objects's semantic layer can expose cubes as OLAP universes to client tools like WebIntelligence (or WebI for short). This applies to OLAP servers like Microsoft's Analysis Services or Hyperion's Essbase but also to SAP BW. There is a component called OLAP Data Access (ODA) that retrieves data via MDX - a query language for multi-dimensional data sources. In the case of BW, the ODA component connects to BW's OLAP BAPI. This connection has now been optimized and streamlined in order to improve the interoperability. This blog gives some insight in what has been done and what the effects are. It complements the blog on the two options to access BW data via universes. Mar. 16, 2009
