Resources for optimizing reporting in SAP BW

So you've purchased and installed SAP BW at your company and you've created some basic reports. Now it's time to take BW to the next level. This checklist provides you with proven project strategies that increase the use of your BW reporting.

Extending the BW functionality inherent within the BEx Analyzer allows you to accommodate many traditional reporting requirements, while maximizing distribution and usability of the reports. Removing the tie-in to OLAP functionality opens up your ability to disseminate data to non-BW users in a familiar Excel format. The real balance is finding a way to keep financial data integrity without limiting the scope of who is able to access the data.
