While completing the activities in this workbook, you will set up and configure an SAP BusinessObjects system for mobile access, install SAP BusinessObjects Mobile for iPad and SAP BusinessObjects Explorer for iPad, access and interact with BI content on an iPad, and develop BI content such as Explorer information spaces and Web Intelligence documents for mobile devices. As you work through the activities in this book, consider how the features and functionality can be applied to solve business problems for your business or your clients. Target Audience This workbook is suitable for anyone new to the SAP BusinessObjects Mobile BI who will be involved in selling, demonstrating, or developing business intelligence solutions or content. Many end users will also find these activities useful in learning the applications. Learning Objectives After completing this workbook you will be able to: Configure SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform for mobile access Install SAP BusinessObjects Mobile and SAP BusinessObjects Explorer for iPad Access and interact with content on mobile devices Design Web Intelligence documents, Information spaces, and Exploration Views for mobile devices. Getting the Most from this Workbook It is strongly recommended that you do your best to complete the activities in the workbook without referring to the solution guide whenever possible. The prerequisites and recommended tutorials referred to in the activities should provide you with the knowledge required to successfully complete the activities. If you get stuck completing any of the activities, step by step solutions are provided in the workbook solutions guide. However, simply clicking through the step by step solution instructions in the software will typically be inadequate to learn how to build effective business intelligence solutions. If you need the step by step solutions to complete any activity, after following the solution instructions, try to complete the activity again, but without referring to the detailed solution steps. Note for instructors: The solution steps are provided in a separate solution guide, which can be provided to students after specific activities have been assigned. This will ensure that students do not simply click through the solutions, but try to complete the activities on their own or with their peers. Page 4 STOP HERE: Prerequisites Before beginning the workbook activities, you should have an understanding of the SAP BusinessObjects 4.0 Business Intelligence Suite. 1.
