We are implementing BO Xcelsius Enterprise next to an existing SAP Netweaver BW landscape (including SAP BW 7.0).
We want to use the direct Xcelsius-SAP BW connection using the BI Consumers Services from EHP 1.
Currently we're using a 3 system landscape for our SAP BW environment, a development, Test and production server.
A) Could you specify what the best practice is for implementing Xcelsius Enterprise as tool:
Option 1: Only 1 Xcelsius server supporting the whole BI landscape
Option 2: set-up 3 Xcelsius servers, one for BW development,
one for the test environment
one for the production environment
And what are the transport possibilities in the 2nd scenario?
B) Also we would like to know how the live-data connection is working when a dahboard user is refreshing the data in the dahboard:
1) is the BW query triggered directly from the Xcelsius Dashboard to the SAP BW server and is the dataflow going directly from the BW server to the Xcelsius Dashboard ?
2) is the BW query triggered indirectly from the Xcelsius Dashboard to the SAP BW server via the Xcelsius Enterprise Server and is the dataflow going indirectly from the BW server to the Xcelsius Dashboard via the Xcelsius Enterprise Server ?
Thanks in advantage for you're answers!
