SAP Analytics Cloud can be integrated with many SAP systems, including the SAP BusinessObjects BI platform.
The SAP BusinessObjects universe is one of the BusinessObjects BI platform's semantic layer options and is able to connect to almost any datasource, both SAP and non-SAP. With SAP Analytics Cloud's ability to connect to SAP BusinessObjects universes, BusinessObjects BI platform customers can leverage their on-premise BusinessObjects system with SAP Analytics Cloud's cloud-based modeling and analytics capabilities.
Most data preparation should be done within the universe, including data optimization and data enhancement, before using the universe in SAP Analytics Cloud.
