The following key applications are included in the set:
- Xcelsius/Dashboards: These allow users to create interactive dashboards containing graphs and charts to help with visualisation of data.
- Explorer: Explorer allows users to sort through BI data sources. Queries do not need to be created to search the data, and results are shown in a chart that indicates the best information match.
- Crystal Reports: This application allows users to design and generate reports.
- Web Intelligence: This provides an environment for creating queries and analysis of data online and offline, whenever needed.
This set of applications came as a result of SAP acquiring the French company Business Objects in October 2007.
SAP BO is particularly useful for IT professionals within Business Analyst roles and Business Intelligence departments.
