What Readers Say

This books is an excellent resource for any one starting in SAP BW/BI. However there are certain issues that I would like to point out.
1. Chapter 6 requires you to have a planning cube for practice which is created in chapter 12. So in order to follow the chapter properly you would need to skip to chapter 12 and then come back.
2. BI content and generic extraction which are by far the most important topics are not explained in detail. I would think that BI content should have LO Extractions from beginning to the end.
On the plus side, this book is very detailed and explains all the crucial data ware housing design principals. Right in the beginning you will learn how to design info-objects, info-cubes and DSOs. The data loading is explained in detailed. There is also detailed information on how to get started with reporting and a nice bonus area that shows how to pull data into Business Objects Universe.
Anyone with little training and/or experience in SAP BI will find this book extremely useful.
