GeoBI for SAP BusinessObjects, currently available for SAP BusinessObjects XI 3 and BI 4, is an intuitive and powerful professional GIS component for Geo-Business Intelligence within SAP BO. GeoBI for SAP BusinessObjects enables you to easily geo-analyze your contextual and business data and indicators on dynamic maps that are integrated right within your BO universes.

INDEX YOUR GIS DATA

From file-based data (.csv, Shape, etc.) to heavy spatial databases (Oracle, PostGIS, Esri, etc.), GeoBI supports all kinds of GIS standards and data formats.

GeoBI also connects to normalized base maps and virtual globes (Google, OpenStreetMap, etc.), as well as web mapping services (TMS, WMS, WMTS, WFS, etc.).

Useful - GeoBI supports X/Y coordinates. Should you need to geolocate postal addresses on the fly, you can use our Geocoding GEO Service.

ADD YOUR BUSINESS DATA

Whatever the formats of your data and indicators, GeoBI supports all standardized formats on top of the SAP BusinessObjects-compatible data formats.

It is thus very simple for you to geo-analyze your whole contextual and business data: thematic data, analytics data, key performance indicators (KPIs), etc.

Interoperable - You may also need to geo-analyze your data on floor plans or specific data layers. GeoBI processes all kinds of geometries and rasters natively.

DESIGN YOUR MAPS

The GeoBI Management Console centralizes your whole GIS data asset management in a single, secured, place, for easy spatial data management.

Insert our GeoBI mapping component into your SAP BusinessObjects reports: GeoBI opens up the configuration wizard for you to create your maps step by step.

Smart - You needn’t be a GIS expert to display your data on your maps. GeoBI deals with the spatial projection for you, even if various projection systems are involved.

CREATE YOUR ANALYSES

Use the GeoBI intuitive wizards to create your analyses in just a few clicks: simple analyses, class analyses, pie charts, bar charts, density maps, heat maps, flow maps, etc.

Since time is another dimension to take into account in BI, you can also imagine to add a time slider to make Data-Analytics based on both space and time.

Unique - Creating your spatial analyses is just a question of configuration: no need for scripting to build powerful mapping analyses with GeoBI for SAP BusinessObjects!

TAILOR YOUR BI MAPS

Customize your GeoBI maps and spatial analyses: class values, point clustering thresholds, symbology, colors and styles of display modes, labels and tooltips, etc.

You can also add extra base maps and data layers, as well as connect to normalized web mapping and web data services to enrich your GeoBI maps even more.

Stylish - Just like your SAP BusinessObjects reports, your GeoBI maps integrated within them are fully customizable with your corporate visual identity.

START GEO-ANALYZING

Make spatial selections and intersect your GIS data with your business and contextual data. Your SAP BusinessObjects report refreshes immediately and dynamically.

GeoBI enables you to make intricate spatial intersections involving points, lines and polygons. This is enabled by our GEO Software patented mapping engine.

Powerful - Drill down for a closer look at your data. If your data is precise enough, GeoBI will enable you to geo-analyze your data and indicators down to the building level.

MAKE BETTER DECISIONS 

GeoBI is the most integrated GIS extension for SAP BO users. Everyone knows that the spatial dimension is everywhere; GeoBI enables you to take the most of it.

Your GeoBI maps become valuable tools to help intricate decision-making; use our drawing and annotations tools to turn them into effective convincing tools.

Mobile - SAP BusinessObjects 4.2 SP4 will include an HTML5 user interface that will open up the gates of mobile usages for you to use GeoBI on your tablets and smartphones.

COLLABORATE

GeoBI is a multi-user, multi-profile Geo-Analytics extension for SAP BusinessObjects, coming with refined reading, editing, importing-exporting and sharing user right management.

We dissociated the GeoBI user right management from the SAP BO one, so as to enable you to share your GeoBI maps beyond your SAP BusinessObjects users.

Scalable - Scalability is another technical requirement we had in mind when creating GeoBI. You can use GeoBI on one single SAP BO server or in cluster mode.
