Participants will gain Business Objects knowledge with a deep focus on Web Intelligence report design and implementation.   Upon completion of this course, you will be able to connect to data, create Webi queries, and design Web Intelligence reports.

The Web Intelligence course begins with an introduction of Business Objects and Web Intelligence.

    I am using these systems daily and your videos help big time. It’s amazing how concisely you put everything together and at a really good pace. The BOW305 course alone is a 2 day event here at a cost of $2500 and the BOW320 is again extended to 2 days and again at $2500.. what a cheek!
