Xcelsius BW connectivity using Live Office



Currently, we are on Netweaver 7.01 SP3, Business Objects XI 3.2 SP 2, and MS Office 2010.

We need to create several Xcelsius Dashboards - some require static data and thus we are looking to leverage scheduled Crystal report data.

Other dashboards require live BW data. Although BICS is the preferred method for live data, we have to use QaaWS until we upgrade to at least SP5 ( we intend to upgrade to SP8 shortly).

As for reporitng off scheduled Crystal repot data - i have few questions:

1) Is Live Office supported in our environment (Netweaver 7.01 SP3, BO XI 3.2 SP2, Office 2010)

2) If not, what other choice do I have to leverage scheduled Crystal Report Data into the Xcelsius dashboard?

3) Is live Office here to stay, or is SAP looking to replace Live Office with another tool in the near future.?
