Feature pack 3 also delivers a number of updates for individual tools in the BI suite, including SAP Crystal Reports, SAP BusinessObjects Explorer, SAP BusinessObjects Mobile 4.1, and others. For an overview of all the tools in SAP’s BI suite, who should use them, and when, see “User Guide: SAP BusinessObjects”.
One of the most important new updates for SAP’s BI tools is the launch of SAP Visual Intelligence. This is a completely new BI tool for data discovery that allows users to create analyses and visualizations on top of SAP HANA. Starting with the big picture, users can drill down to the detail-level and get real-time answers.
