  • You don't need anything to watch these videos.
  • If you want to follow along, it would be useful to have some appreciation of database design, and a copy of Access 2010, but these are optional.


In this course, we will Install SAP BusinessObjects programs, namely Information Design Tool (IDT) and Web Intelligence (WebI) - for free.

We will create a sample database in Access 2010 (although you may already have your own database that you want to use), and then create a database connection to it.

We will then create a "universe" in IDT, with a database Relational Connection, Data Foundation and Business Layer.

We will then export this universe from IDT and open it in WebI.

We will then create some tables and graphs.

This is a quick overview of these two programs, following which you will have the programs on your machine, and can experiment for yourself.
