Hi,

How do users access the xcelsius dashboards if the SAP portal is not installed? and if there exists sap connections for the dashboards, which have to display the live sap bw data? especially if they are connected versions of the sap xcelsius dashboards which have to display the live SAP BW data.

Thanks in advance,

sandy.

Hi,

The Xcelsius output is a flash file(exception: Direct connection to BW), you can put that file in a web site, in a power point slide, infoView or your sharepoint portal.

You have a couple of options if you want to connect Xcelsius to SAP BI data:

1) Direct Connection (Not an option if you dont have SAP Portal):

2) Through LiveOffice:

Here you can choose to go through universes (Live Data), webi (Cached data) or crystal reports (Cached data).

3) Query As A web Service:

Here you need a universe get to the data (Live data)
