    what exactly do you mean with datamodel ? Cause BusinessObjects is not a DB vendor, which means we dont have our own RDBMS. We can connect to RDBMS systems like DB2, Oracle etc. and OLAP DBs like Essbase, SAP BW etc.

    You can have an architecture Overview of Business Objects, thats no problem (if it helps you)

    Hi DJ,

    Best Practice says that if you have SAP BI in Back end and SAP BOBJ on front End then follow below mentioned path.

    Create your SAP Query on the top of your InfoCube or ODS etc

    Use calculated Key Figures and Restricted Key Figures in your Query.

    Use most of the objects under Free Characteristics area for better performance and results

    Create your Universe on the top of SAP Query. (we can create universe on the top of Cube and ODS but then we cannot use variable and performance also gets hit)

    You can also create further variable / Filters at Universe level instead of WebI to improve performance

    Create WebI report or Crystal Report etc (You can also create variables / Filters here).

    Page 38 of following link gives a diagram for better understanding.
