ASUG Crystal SIG Webinar: Universe Design

Categories: General Dave Rathbun @ 4:19 pm

Next week I will be presenting a webinar for the ASUG Crystal SIG. The details:

SAP BusinessObjects Universe Development for Non ERP Data
Date: Tuesday, June 29, 2010
Time: 12:00 p.m. ET
Duration: 60 minutes

Join the ASUG Crystal Reports SIG for their upcoming Webcast, Accelerate Your SAP BusinessObjects Universe Development for Non-ERP Data.

In this Webinar you will understand what an SAP BusinessObjects Universe is, how to identify and resolve the most common structural issues facing a universe developer and how to quickly resolve them against non-ERP data.

Why the emphasis on “Non ERP Data”? When I build a universe on top of a cube (whether SAP or other source) I don’t have many issues to solve. Everything comes in based on the structure of the cube. With SAP using Crystal in more and more places, I wanted to make it clear that I was not going to be talking about cube sources but relational sources instead.

It will be a quick (one hour) overview universe design, including a couple of loop resolution techniques and I think I also talk about fan traps.
