SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand: How It Works

Using the intuitive interface in SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand, you can upload a spreadsheet, bring in different data sources, and explore your data with the software's unique search and browse functionality.

The integrated solution lets you create accurate, timely dashboards and reports. That means you no longer need to pull together sales reports from various sources or manually create pivot tables, charts, and graphs. You can also perform ad hoc, what-if analyses. There's no need to share spreadsheets and reports via e-mail or paper - instead, you can share the information online.
