Business Objects 4.1 SharePoint 2013 Integration

Hello everyone,

My company has upgraded our SharePoint environment to 2013 (SP2013), and they're now interested in BOXI-SP integration. Does anyone know if the Business Objects Enterprise 4.1 S2 platform is compatible with the SharePoint 2013 platform? I read the supported platforms and it still shows 2010. However, I read a few other posts that say it may work and that official support was supposed to be available by now.

I am trying to confirm that Business Objects 4.1 SharePoint 2013 Integration does or does not yet exist.

thank you

    Hi Travis,

    depending on your BI Deployment, we are actually already supporting Sharepoint 2013 on a "Use Case" Scenario.. The main reason for not officially supporting Sharepoint 2013, has been the breakdown of WebI with the SP2013 engines.. If you do not use WebI within the Sharepoint Integration, you may want to request an exception via your sales channel to run BI4.1 against Sharepoint 2013

    The limitation with Web Intelligence has been resolved with BI4.1 SP03 and is scheduled to be released by end of March 2014..

    • on the same page, on the left side is a navigation menu.
      select Business Intelligence platform BI 4.1 and under Integration kits you'll see 2 guides for Sharepoint.

      That is all that is available for it and both cover what you need.

      There is also SDK documentation for .NET, again , on the same page, in SDk section.

    Supported Platforms IS the official word on the subject as far as supportability goes.

    Once SP03 for BI4.1 is released this might change (scheduled for end of march)
