• This 10-12 hour eLearning course explains how to perform the tasks in the central management console (CMC). These tasks involve supporting BusinessObjects TM Enterprise users and groups so they can access corporate data through the web portal in BusinessObjects Enterprise. The security of this corporate data is also covered. This corporate data can take the form of Crystal Reports, BusinessObjects Web Intelligence, or Desktop Intelligence documents, Voyager workspaces, program objects, object packages, and popular third-party objects, such as Microsoft Word and Excel files, among others. Please note: this course does not discuss maintaining BusinessObjects Enterprise servers, which is taught in the BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.0/3.1: Administering Servers – Windows course.
