The SAP BusinessObjects XI 3.1 SP2 release introduced a new feature, BI Web Services which enables users to create web services in Web Intelligence. These web services can then be published into the BusinessObjects Enterprise platform.
With this release, the Product team is seeing interest in using Web Intelligence BI Web Services with Xcelsius Enterprise and is looking at evaluating how this workflow can be supported. Since this workflow is in the evaluation stage, it is not a recommended approach. Users trying this workflow might experience issues related to BI Web Service specificities.
Until this workflow has been thoroughly tested, and BI Web Service specificities addressed, we do not recommend using BI Web Services with Xcelsius. Instead, customers and internal employees should continue to use Query as a Web Service or Live Office as the recommended methods to connect with universe data.
