How to learn to make universes (with bo-universe designer)?

Hi,

I'm an absolute beginner in SAP-BO. We want to enroll our - in SAP-BI/BW stored - information

out to the consumer over universes. The universes should be for xcelsius and WebIntelligence.

So...my question: What is the best way to learn to build universes!

Has anybody a special book wich I should read, or is there anywhere a good tutorial-website....?

Thanks for your information!

Best wishes

    Creating universes on BEx queries is relatively straightforward. Check out this document:

    [http://help.sap.com/businessobject/product_guides/boexir31SP3/en/xi31_sp3_sap_olap_univ_en.pdf]

    N.B. You will notice that data refresh times in Webi and Xcelsius will be significantly slower than BEx. So, I recommend that you only use these two tools for aggregated, high-level strategic reporting.

      Hi Khaled McGonnell,

      thanks for your fast and good post!

      One question I have to your NB: "N.B. You will notice that data refresh times in Webi and Xcelsius will be significantly slower than BEx. So, I recommend that you only use these two tools for aggregated, high-level strategic reporting. "

      --> Do you think I can compensate the slower performance with offline-generating?

      That means, we want to process the data in offline-files in the night and distribute it to the portal.

      If someone change the drill down, he/she has to count with slower performance with this non-standard drill down.

      What are you thinking about this?

      Thanks and best wishes from Germany
