Xcelsius and Business Intelligence Web Services (BIWS)- Part 2

As a follow up to my blog on BIWS, I created two videos to show you the concepts of creating and consuming BI Web Services. The demonstrations were done using BI 4.0.

In this first video, I create a web service and demonstrate how to validate it from an already developed Web Intelligence report.



In this second video, I create a simple dashboard using SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards 4.0 that connects, consumes, and filters the data via the web service connection.



The demos were built using the efashion universe, so if you have that around, you can follow along.
