It may not be an understatement to consider the recent SAP BI 4.3 release as a huge milestone. This comes entirely with the new FIORI-based interface and offers a modern and new experience for ad-hoc and operational reporting as well as designing visually rich dashboards with Web Intelligence. While this is a great foundational step towards future analytics it is also quite a transition from the classic launchpad.  This session will summarize the key usability and functionality changes that Webi consumers and developers would potentially come across while transitioning from WebI 4.2 to 4.3.

Calculating aggregation at different levels to slice and dice data is a frequent requirement in the world of BI. Web Intelligence provides a very efficient method to perform aggregate calculations against not only different levels of granularity but also display them together. A very simple example will be to show the Revenue by City and by Country in the same table side by side in the same row. But there are more scenarios in which customizing the calculation context is necessary. As fairly a commonly used feature it is, the advanced use can often be intimidating. In this session, we will cover some of scenarios in details and go beyond showing basic aggregate at the same row. Knowing this feature will also eliminate the need to export the data out of WebI into excel frequently for detail analysis. Understanding the concept will allow you to recreate many day-to-day spreadsheet activities easily within WebI itself and encourage users to stay more within BI system.

Let’s Speak BO Webinar: Recreating SQL “Partition By” with Web Intelligence to Display Detail Row and Aggregates Together

Calculating aggregation at different levels to slice and dice data is a frequent requirement in the world of BI. Web Intelligence provides a very efficient method to perform aggregate calculations against not only different levels of granularity but also display them together. A very simple example will be to show the Revenue by City and by Country in the same table side by side in the same row. In this session, we will explore the different scopes and ways this capability can be utilized. This will also offer an alternate way to obtain the same result as “PARTITION BY” – a clause frequently used in SQL to achieve complex calculations related to aggregation. This clause divides a query’s result set into partitions. Although an option, Custom SQL is often not accessible to many WebI users and brings other challenges. Knowing the WebI technique will be a great addition to eliminate those limitations and extend your options for complex analytical calculations.
