An integrated installation program makes installation and web application deployment easier as there is no longer the requirement of a separate install and the new installation platform covers a wide range of areas including:

• Enterprise Resource Planning
• Lifecycle Management
• SAP Solution Manager support
• Data Federation
• Mobile server support
• SAP BusinessObjects Dashboard Design server support
• Language support
• SAP BW publishing servers.

Improvements have also been made to the deployment of web applications to a web application server through the newly improved WDeploy Graphical User Interface and Web application consolidation.

Other  new applications introduced in BusinessObjects XI 4.0 include an upgrade management tool, monitoring of runtime and historical metrics and an information design tool.

SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise ZI 4.0 combines the best features of traditional SAP BusinessObjects and Crystal Reports products. For example auditing, data access, data security, integration for ERP solutions and interactive analysis to mention a few.
Soltius has been involved in the Ramp-Up implementation of SAP BusinessObjects giving our BI Team an opportunity to use the new software and become familiar with it.
