We would like to distribute BI contents by E-mail.

I've investgated the documents for Information Broadcasting.

It seems that this funcation needs Knowledge Managemet(KM).

We implemented only Enterprise Portal.

I would like to know whather Information broadcasting need KM or not.

To use information broadcasting by e-mail, you need the component SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence (SAP BW). If you want to make Business Intelligence content available through SAP Enterprise Portal (SAP EP) you also need the components SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Portal and SAP NetWeaver Knowledge Management. For more information on the technical requirements, see>SAP NetWeaver->Release 04->Installation->Installation Guide – SAP Business Information Warehouse 3.5.

Hi Yuki!

both BW web reports and Bex workbook (excel format) can be distributed via <u><b>e-mail</b></u> without EP or KM.

for distributing Bex workbook, you need to install the Precalculation Service. For detailed information about the configuration please refer:

there is a BW standard web template available for the broadcaster, you can very very easily integrate it into EP.
