Components of SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform

BI Platform Overview

Explore the BI Launchpad

The BI launch pad is a web-based application used to access the reporting tools and to create and view finished BI documents. You can access documents using frequently used paths from the Home screen. On the Home screen you also have access to your BI Inbox where documents that are scheduled or sent to you by others might appear. You will also see notifications sent to you.

Log On to and Navigate in the BI Launch Pad

When your organization provides users access to the BI launch pad for the purposes of managing and sharing documents, you need to know how to log on to the BI launch pad, open a document, set your preferences to make the Documents tab the default view when logging on to the BI Launchpad, and log off from the BI launch pad.
