Riassunto analitico
The main scope of this thesis is to successfully face a Business Intelligence data integration problem of the IT Function of an Italian company.

After a brief introduction who faces the Decisional Thinking problem inside a business company, I mentioned the extraction and understanding problems of information from the data: these processes are vital for every company heading to success.

The current company’s landscape before the project kick-off is the following: this company has an ERP, an SAP® R3® System, handling the gather of the data from all over the world and which towards it to a Business Warehouse to maintain it in an efficient way. This allows IT Specialists to mine information vital for the company success. The central chapters of this Thesis expose the process of gathering the data from the ECC system, to the storage of that data in the company’s Business Warehouse and the extraction and aggregation for the final presentation, step achievable with Business Intelligence reporting tools.

The purpose of the project carried out in this thesis is to integrate the SAP Netweaver™ BW (Business Warehouse) with the main SAP reporting suite, called SAP Business Objects™, in particular with the Web Intelligence tool that made possible the realization of several dynamic report families, and to explain the integration process with the related technologies.

The project was completed with the creation of publications for the Summary report family. A publication is a way to deliver a report to a receiver by e-mail, file system or other means. A publication can be scheduled, any time with different options, with the aim to reduce the amount of work on IT specialists and to make automatic the procedure to create the report with updated data and send them to the company controllers. These publications are one of the true strength of a reporting tool suite such as SAP Business Objects.
