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.
I would recommend this to all BO WEBI users in the moderate to early advanced range.
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.
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.
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.
