The Report Launch Module is the core of the Launch Portal software platform enabling the SalesForce.com and SAP BusinessObjects Integration solution. The key benefits to implementing Report Launch are:
- Out-of-Box, SAP Certified Solution
- Embedded analytics requiring no customized code
- salesforce.com and SAP BusinessObjects secure integration
- Ability to work in the cloud or in a hosted data center
Report Launch allows you to embed reports from your SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise system into your externally facing applications for departments, partners, and vendors to access. The application provides an instant web portal front end that can be retrieved by standard web browsers and popular Microsoft®, Android®, and iOS devices. The portal leverages the authentication layer from your SAP BusinessObjects deployment or your LDAP based directory server so you do not need to maintain two sets of permissions for a user.
In addition to the instant portal, Report Launch was built to be the embedded reporting layer to your own applications. You can use Report Launch to integrate reporting from SAP BusinessObjects into your web portals, CRM/ERP systems, touchscreen kiosks, and mobile apps. You can accomplish this with a single line of HTML and have your reports embedded within minutes.
Report Launch offers a sophisticated caching mechanism that provides quick response times to your users while enabling you to make both report format and parameter changes on your SAP BusinessObjects backend. Report Launch detects those changes in real-time, refreshes the cache, and presents the latest data to your users.
Report Launch enables you to bypass certain semantic layers when simplicity is your design goal. Our application enables an option for direct access to your SQL database using enhanced dynamic and cascading parameters as well as direct access to SalesForce reports, SalesForce Queries and Web Services.
Report Launch integrates with the following SAP products: BusinessObjects, Web Intelligence®, Crystal Reports®, and Xcelsius® / SAP Dashboards, SalesForce.com Reports.
