Goals

  • This 18-hour eLearning course explains and demonstrates what each server component in BusinessObjects Enterprise does and how it is configured. You will install and configure each component and learn how information flows from server to server for system processes such as logging on to the system, scheduling reports, and viewing reports. You will learn to use the Central Management Console (CMC) and the Central Configuration Manager (CCM) to manage and configure the servers and will also practice troubleshooting system problems when they arise. The business benefit of this course is that it provides a foundation for system architects/administrators who are responsible for administering servers on the BusinessObjects Enterprise platform.
