The back end data warehouse would not be complete without the SAP developed front of the house reporting solution. The BEx reporting layer is final part of the SAP BW package. Think of it as the presentation layer that is tapping into the back of the house to make data more presentable and easier to digest for the business.
Well we have news for you. It’s worth every penny, and here’s why.
The BEx training is structured in such a way that the learning progression feels natural from getting to know the tool, creating reports, setting up variables, and learning query specific properties.
SAP Business Explorer (BEx) was designed to create formatted reports that would allow for ad-hoc analysis to be performed. The BEx tool was built on top of Excel so it seamlessly integrates with your existing SAP BW system and Microsoft Office suite.
The training walks the user through existing report execution and provides you with the necessary query design skills to create high-performing, user-friendly reports that will not bog down the system. You learn in this course how to make the report accessible by an entire enterprise, with a strong focus on performance and flexibility. We enjoyed how all the capabilities of BEx that are often overlooked by report designers were included. Namely, important navigational features like drag and drop functionality to enable end-user interaction.
Upon completion of this BEx course you will be able to confidently create and execute reports within the BEx space. Bear in mind that this training was recorded on the SAP BW 7.x version so it is up to date with what is being used in the market. In addition you will master:
- BEx Query Designer navigational to confidently use the tool
- Jump Targets which allow you to “query hop” around reports
- Conditional formatting within reports to make information easier to discern
- Using Custom Templates to accelerate future design
- Learn to easily pull data from InfoProviders (DSO, InfoCube, InfoSet, Master Data bearing InfoProvider, etc…)
- Workbook creation to incorporate more than one report into the same view
You also have 24/7 access to the instructor (Certified BEx trainer and BEx expert) to answer questions, no matter how complex. We tested this out as it seemed too good to be true, but he responded to our question withing two hours of us sending it out.
