SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence

Web Intelligence is a tool for analyzing the organization's business information and creating ad-hoc reports.
Web Intelligence is a tool for business users which provides an easy-to-use interface for analyzing data in a data warehouse to help with the decision-making business process. Its capabilities range from basic and simple to very complex reports and webintelligence allows users to share the information throughout the enterprise easily.
Business analysts access the information using their everyday business vocabulary without having to understand anything about the technical way the information is stored in the data warehouse.

Web Intelligence is accessed from the SAP BusinessObjects portal InfoView via an internet browser. Once opened, users can create and edit Web Intelligence documents and analyze the data displayed in them. With the InfoView portal those documents can be shared with other users, scheduled, printed out or send via email.

Web Intelligence uses universes (created by datawarehouse developers or modelers) to access the data and provide a business oriented view of the data. This results in the fact that the users have access directly to the source database allowing for robust query and analysis options (they are not limited to a personalized OLAP cube for instance) which helps significantly in responding to everyday questions and resolving problems.
