This training course is intended for those who have little or no experience of the Information Design Tool (IDT), and wish to gain the comprehensive knowledge and skills to create BusinessObjects universes. Ideally you will have attended our Web Intelligence Report Design course, or have equivalent experience of Web Intelligence reporting.

The IDT will enable delegates to extract, define and manipulate metadata from OLAP and relational sources to successfully create and deploy SAP BusinessObjects universes. Working knowledge of OLAP database management systems is also therefore recommended before undertaking this training.

By the end of the three days delegates will be able to confidently utilise the Information Design Tool to analyse and report on corporate data in a non-technical language.
