Find out how you can use SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence with your SAP NetWeaver BW system and learn how you can use the “Track data changes” feature to identify time-dependent changes in your data.
Key Concept

SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence enables you to offer a reporting environment that your users can leverage to fulfill their reporting needs without always relying on a central IT department to build new or change existing reports. You can use SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence to provide an ad-hoc reporting tool to your users and in that way establish a self-service environment on top of SAP NetWeaver BW.

SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence allows you to provide self-service reporting in your SAP NetWeaver BW environment. It also helps to reduce potential bottlenecks in your IT department by offering your end users an environment that allows simple and quick report creation and modification, as well as a way to share the results across different users and user groups.
