Web Intelligence Usage SAP WEBI

Web Intelligence (referred to as Webi) is a software in the SAP BusinessObjects product suite used for analytical reporting. Webi is a business intelligence reporting tool for users to analyze data from a data warehouse, helping organizations with decision-making. Webi is best suited for reports containing tables and lists.

Webi uses what is known as a semantic layer to isolate users from the technical complexities of databases. This layer is called a universe, which users interact with. Universes are sectioned off for certain types of data that is stored in a data warehouse.
