Business Objects 6.5 & BOXI R2 FAQ s By PenchalaRaju.Yanamala 1) What is Business Objects ?

Business Objects is a Dynamic Business intelligence reporting solution from Business Objects. BUSINESS OBJECTS is an integrated query, reporting and an alysis solution for business professionals that allow them to access the data in their corporate databases directly from their desktop and present and analyze t his information in a BUSINESS OBJECTS document. It is an OLAP tool that high-level management can use as a part of a Decision Su pport Systems (DSS). BUSINESS OBJECTS makes it easy to access the data, because you work with it in business terms that are familiar to you, not technical datab ase terms like SQL. 2) What is Business intelligence? Business Intelligence is a technology used for preparing the reports for multidimensional analyses. 3) What is Business Intell igence 80 / 20 concept? In a business Intelligence environment 80% of developmen t time is allocated to OLAP interface designing, 20% of time allocated to Report development. 4) What are the various Business Objects products? User Module, Designer, Superv isor, Auditor, Set Analyzer, Info View (Web Intelligence), Business Objects Soft ware Development Kit (SDK), Broadcast Agent etc. 5) What are the roles of BO Administrator? The following are the responsibility assigned to administrator. 1. Installations and configurations in a distributed environment. 2. Creating the BO Enterprise Repository. 3. Performing back up and recovery of Metadata 4. Tuning the servers. 5. Deployment of reports. 6) What are the roles of BO designer or Architect? An Architect is responsible f or designing the OLAP interface by fulfilling the requirements. Once the Interfa ce has designed it should be regressively tested before giving to the end user p opulation. 7) What is OLAP interface? A good OLAP interface writes an efficient SQL and reads an aqua rate data from database. To design the interface and archi tect having good knowledge on database under standing the report requirements. 8) What is an Application Developer or Report developer? Design the Reports acco rding to the report requirement templates. Testing the each report with followin g types of tests a. Unit Testing b. System Testing c. Performance Testing d. User Acceptance Test (UAT) 9) What are the products installed along with BOXI R2 software When install the XI R2 following products get installed : a. Business View Manager b. Business Objects enterprise c..Net administration launch pad d. Business objects Enterprise .Net Info view e . Designer desktop intelligence f. Central management console g. Universe builde r 10) What is Designer? Designer is a Business Objects IS module used by universe designers to create and maintain universes. Universes are the semantic layer tha t isolates end users from the technical issues of the database structure. Universe designers can distribute universes to end-users by moving them as files through the file system, or by exporting them to the repository. 11) What is a universe? Universe provides a semantic layer between you and the database. It co nsists of classes and objects named in business terms. It is basically a mapping of table and the columns in the database to classes and objects respectively in the query panel. Alternatively, It is logical mapping of data in business terms. In the Business Objects User module, universes enable end users to build queries from which they can generate and perform analysis. Universes isolate end users from the complexities of the database structure as well as the intricacies of SQL syntax. 12) How to create a universe? Universe will be created using designer. That univ

erse is known as classic universe. Using this classic universe we can create web intelligence reports, desktop intelligence reports, crystal repots. 13) Process of Universe creation? Universe Parameters ? Import Tables ? Import Joins ? Loop ? Create Classes ? Create Objects ? Define hierarchies 14) How do you define un iverse parameters? A universe parameter defines the name of the universe and connection to the targ et database. The first step in creating a universe is to specify its parameters. These parameters include the definition of a universe, which is comprised of: the universe name, a description of the universe, a connection to an RDBMS. You enter universe parameters from the Universe Parameters dialog box. This dialog box also lets you set up database options, external strategies, graphic options, and print settings. 15) How do you test the integrity of a universe? With the Check Integrity comman d, you can test the structure of your active universe. This means testing to det ermine whether its components are accurate and up-to-date. Check Integrity serves the following purposes: It detects any inconsistencies in the objects, joins, conditions, and cardinalities of your universe. It detects whether there are any loops in the joins. It determines whether changes were mad e to the database to which the universe is connected. 16) How can you check the universe? Using check Integrity, u can check the universe. Go to Designer, Tools -> check Integrity 17) What are Linked Universes? If the data provided is from two different data providers then we can link those two universes, such type of universe is called Linked Universe. 18) What is multidimensional analyses? A mul ti dimensional analyses is a technique to modify the data so that the data can b e view from different prospective and at the different levels of details. 19) Wh at are the futures of multidimensional analyses? The following are the features of multidimensional analyses: Drill Down (For more details) Drill Up (For summery details) Drill Across (Like from year to different cities) 20) What are the formats supported for Business Objects documents? You can view Business Objects documents in the following formats: 1. HTML 2. PDF 3. Enhanced Document Format 4. Business Objects Format 21) What are the advantages of Busine ss Objects over other DSS? ?User Friendly. ?Familiar Business Terms. ?Graphical Interface ?Drag and Drop. ?Powerful reports in less time. ?Enterprise wide Deployment of documents using Web. Customized dashboards using Application foundation and Business Objects SDK. 22) How many modes are there in Business Objects & Designer? There are 2 types: Enterprise Mode, Workgroup Mode . 23) What are Enterprise and Workgroup modes? Designer lets you save universes in either enterprise or workgroup mode. Enterprise mode means that you are worki ng in an environment with a repository. Workgroup mode means that you are workin g without a repository. The mode in which you save your universe determines whet her other designers are able to access them. By default, a universe is saved in the mode in which you are already working. For example, if you launched a sessio n in enterprise mode, any universe you save is automatically in that mode. 24) How do you save a Business Objects document, which can be accessed by all us ers in workgroup mode? If we want to make a universe accessible to another desig ner working without a repository, then click the Save as Workgroup check box in the Save as universe dialog box. 25) What are the types of connections or types of universe? Designer provides th ree types of connections: secured, shared, and personal. 1. Personal:- Universe can be accessed by a single user or A single user can query the data from databa

27) What are the types of Joins? The follo wing are the types of Joins : 1. 26) What is Joins? A Join is a relationship that explains how the data in one ta ble relates to data in another table. it indicates the joins cau sing a loop. 32) What are aliases? An alias is a logical pointer to an alternate table name. It links an aliased table to existing tables. A Theta join links tables based on a relationship other than equality between tw o columns. One to Many 2. re-arranging joins. In fact. A universe can be accessed by multiple users and can send multiple queries to the database. Right outer Joins 4. 35) Where are the types are relationship between tables? 3 types relationship : 1.multiple user can send queries to database.This i s the default connection type. Sharing :. Loops result in ambiguity in the design of a unive rse 31) How do you detect loops? Designer enables you to identify loops in one o f two ways: You can run the Check Integrity function. which indicates the existe nce of any loops. as necessary. you can use contexts and ali ases in the same universe. more than one al ias may be necessary for a given table. As you create aliases.se 2. propagate the aliases) Designer displays an alias in the Struc ture pane as a table. in other words. The purpose of joins is to restrict the result set of a query run against multiple tables. Secure :. 30) What are loops? Loop is a situation that occurs when more than one path exis ts from one table to another. which guide you in the loop resolution process Cardinalities Aliases Contexts The first step in resolving loops is to detect the cardinalities of the tables. Inner Joins 2. You can select the Detect Loops command from the Tools menu. 33) How do you resolve the loop? You can resolve loops in two ways: Using aliases Using contexts DESIGNER : Detect Detect Detect provides three features. One to One 3. Short cut Join 28) What is theta join? A join is a relational o peration that causes two or more tables with a common domain to be combined into a single table. Many to Many 36) What is an add-in? Add-ins are programs that add optional commands and featu . Left outer Joins 3. In some cases. 3. the Loop Detection viewer appears. This occurs when the new aliases result in the need for additional aliases. two options are available to you: You can cause only the first table proposed to be aliased You can alias all the ta bles listed (i. you can automate the task w ith a macro. In such a situation. If you perform a task repeatedly. I f there are loops.e. Designer may prompt you to create other aliases. You create macros using the Visual Basic Editor. Full outer Joins 5. 34) Can Contexts and Aliases Be Used Together? Yes. creating such aliases entails the propagation of other aliases. in many cases you should use them together. The purpose of an alias is to resolve loops in the paths of joins. Theta Join 6. 29) What is a macro? A macro is a series of commands and functions that are stor ed in a Visual Basic for Applications module and can be run whenever you need to perform the task.

Functions beginning with the @ character are BusinessObject functions that render the definition of objects dynamic and database. and the path to the database. 40) How do you define universe parameters? The first step in creating a is to specify its parameters. An object can be qualified as a dimension. These parameters include the definition of a universe. 44) What are the components of the Designer interface? In Designer. This box also lets you set up database options. you create a universe using t hree areas: the Universe pane. enter universe parameters from the Universe Parameters dialog box. it determines which tables to use in SQL generation: either aggregate tables or detailed table s. external strategies. the Structure pane. 41) What are cardinalities? Cardinality expresses the minimum and maximum number of instances of an entity B that can be associated with an instance of an entit y A. Character.res to BUSINESS OBJECTS. user identification. A sha red connection is used to access common resources such as universes or documents . A personal connection is specific to one user a nd can be used only from the computer on which it was created. you can still ret rieve the cardinalities for one or all joins in the universe. this type o f object causes a message to appear that prompts the end user to enter a specifi c value. or a measure. 37) What function s are supported? Designer provides four types of functions: Number. These parameters include system information such as the data account. There are two main methods for detecting or editing cardinalitie s: the Detect Cardinalities command the Edit Join dialog box If you selected the Detect cardinalities in joins option s in the Database tab of the Options dialog box. Shared and Personal. In the Query Panel. @Where lets you re-u se the Where clause of an existing object. universe the You dialog options. @Prompt is used to create an interactive object. The Univer . 1. shared. D ate and @Functions. a detail. In the Universe pane. @Script is used to recover the results of an executed macro created with the Vis ual Basic Editor in the BusinessObjects User module @Select lets you re-use the Select statement of an existing object @Variable is used to reference the value assigned to a name or variable. it must always have two cardinalities. a connection to an RDBMS.e. the symbol beside each object indicates its qualification. Designer detects and retrieves the cardinalities of the joins.independen t. 39) What is meant by object qualifica tion? The qualification of an object reveals how it can be used in multidimensional analysis. which is comprised of: universe name. Several users can thus use it. i. All you probably nee d to do is install and uninstall add-ins that are sent to you. and personal. 42) What is a database connection? A connection is a set of parameters that prov ides access to an RDBMS. the Table Browser. A sec ured connection is used to centralize and control access to sensitive or critica l data. 38) Define types of functions and there purposes: @Function Purpose @Aggregate_A ware is used to enhance the performance of SQL transactions. or N. The minimum and the maximum number of instances can be equal to 0. Designer provides three types of connections: secured. graphic and print settings. It is the safest type of connection for protecting access to data. 43) What are the types of connections we use when connecting to the database? Th ere are three types of connections namely: . Add-ins are usually created by those responsible in you r company for adding customized features to BUSINESSOBJECTS. Because a join represents a bi-directional relationship.Secured. If you do not use this option. a description of the universe.

It contains the dimension objects in the order in which they a re presented in the class. Measure 3. We can t create object without class. objects are qualified as one of t hree types: dimension. the name of a class reflects a business concept that conveys th e category or type of objects. and conditions. A universe is a set of classes and objects intended for a specific application or group of user s. For the purposes of multidimensional analysis. and joins.se pane displays the components of the universe from the point of view of Busine ss Objects. The name of an object suggests a concept drawn from the terminology of a business or discipline. Avg(). Def ault hierarchy :.

You can also prepare certain objects for multidimensional analysis. which t . y ou are free to define hierarchies of classes and subclasses in a model that best reflects the business concepts of your organization. The Table Browser is the component that lets you create the cl asses and objects of the universe from the tables and columns of a database. 45) How do you design a universe? The design method consists of two major phases . or measure. 49) What are objects? An o bject is the most refined component in a universe. During the first phase. 48) What are classes? A class is a logical grouping of objects within a unive rse. The Structure pane ref lects the underlying database structure of the universe including the tables. In the human resources universe. that is the classes. Max(). During the second phase. Custom hierarchy :. The default aggregate function using creating measure object is Sum( ). A class can be further divided into subclasses. you should test the integrity of your universe structure. A class is a collection of objects based on business categories. an object can be qualified as one of three types: a dimension. 54) What is a hierarchy?
