About the Author

Since being introduced to Business Objects in 1993, Robert Schmidt has consulted at hundreds of companies throughout the world. He has worked in many different environments and businesses. Each place he has worked adds to his total knowledge of Business Objects and Business Intelligence in general. He has taken this knowledge and has written several well accepted books on Business Objects. Robert Schmidt has also trained tens of thousands of people to use Business objects applications to create Universes and reports. Since most of this training is on-site at the companies, he learns about different systems and techniques. Again, he takes this experience and knowledge and tries to put it in his books so that others can benefit. Mr. Schmidt was conferred a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the University of Florida in 1990. While at the University of Florida, he studied robotic engineering and even built a gantry robot of his own design. He also formally studied Financial Engineering at Brooklyn Polytechnic University.

Format: Paperback
As a longtime Business Objects user and trainer, I have been disappointed in the limited selection of manuals suitable for training. I loved Cindi Howson's - BO Complete Reference. But it is limited to features in XI R2.
I found this book while looking for a new guide / manual on the current release of Web Intelligence (XI 3.x). This book is amazing. It doubles as a quick reference guide and a step-by-step manual enabling new users to easily learn the tool.
What I love:
> It covers features at least through XI 3.1 SP2 (I can tell by coverage of Input Controls)
> The scope is limited to Web Intelligence, with coverage of the Rich Client
> The pages are printed landscaped. This makes much better use of space. So you can lay the book with the spine horizontal next to your keyboard. For a given topic, the top page provides illustrations and the bottom page provides step-by-step instructions; accompanied by good tips and commentary. Most topics are covered in 2 pages making this an easy manual to follow. A few large topics go on for several pages.
> This book is thorough. It provides great coverage from the fundamentals to advanced topics, such as input / output context, etc.
It would take a typical, new Web Intelligence developer a while to grow out of this book. A standard business user may never need more than this book.
I am going to order several more copies for our library and to support training sessions.

This manual is a fleshed out version of the SAP Report Design classes. I especially like the format that includes screen shots of each step in a landscape format (you use the book in the same position as a calendar) and the corresponding instructions below.
I would recommend this to all BO WEBI users in the moderate to early advanced range.

This is indeed a course not a text book and everything depends on the goal you have when buying it. It is not a reference book however if you want to learn BO report creation from scratch and by learning you mean to get a really solid foundation this book is for you. I am quite proficient in Reporting Services and the methodology of this book (=show everything + explain every detail) gave me a very good understanding of BO similarities with SSRS.
What makes this an unusual but very pleasant experience is the willingness of the author to help with say getting connection to the samples. In me that generates a lot of respect and trust, frankly I do not remember having a similar experience with any other book.

Although I've worked with Business Objects for a while, I never had the right training to do more than some advanced basics. What I like about this book is that it's a reference and a how-to rolled together. I didn't want the CDs for this because I like the paper, having the book open while I try to work out some problem.

I like having an index. It's brief, not doesn't skimp. Is it perfect? What is? I've had this only a short time and already and recommending it to co-workers.

For anyone familiar with relational databases or SQL and looking to get up to speed in Business Objects in a short period of time I would strongly encourage purchasing this book. It has a chapter for what seems every key area an end user must know. Each one of those chapters goes into thorough but not overwhelming detail and illustrates the concept through examples. The examples reflect actual situations an end user might experience and serves as excellent example to refer to as you work through your own reporting development.

What's so valuable about this book is that it goes beyond the basic training examples frequently seen. It also sums up one in easy to reference book advanced capabilities you'll need to know; avoiding the time and effort to scour through the internet to find in bits and pieces what you'll find here. It even has a whole chapter dedicated to all the instances of contextual contexts alone.

It's a great book, strongly recommended.
