    • SAP BusinessObjects Xcelsius Enterprise: providing greater insight into your business. In this demo, you'll see how SAP BusinessObjects Xcelsius Enterprise enables you to: monitor key performance indicators in a highly visual and impactful way, transform complex data into interactive dashboards that enable any business user to gain clear insight into business performance, and answer questions and make informed decisions based on real-time changes in your business environment. SAP BusinesObjects Xcelsius Enterprise delivers drag-and-drop functionality, powerful and interactive visualizations of your data, flexible deployment options, and the ability to connect to any data source. In this example, I'm a vice president of sales. I open SAP BusinessObjects Xcelsius Enterprise to view a dashboard that shows sales performance. I can use it to quickly access and understand the information most relevant and important to me. For example, I can see sales performance by product and by region. I start by looking at the Asia-Pacific region. If I hover over the bar chart, I can see the individual sales data points. I see that Japan has exceeded its sales target. When I click on the sales chart, I can see sales performance by each geographical location. The map automatically refreshes to show relevant detail based on the location I select in the sales chart. I can also ask questions and get fast, accurate answers based on my enterprise data – and only see what’s most relevant and important to me. For example, I’m interested in how changes to discounts and gross sales would impact profitability and other variables. Using what-if modeling, I can manipulate discounts and instantly see the impact on key sales metrics. I can also create different scenarios around my business, understand their business impact, and prepare our organization for changes in advance. For example, I can ask and answer, “What’s the business impact when sales decrease by 5%?” Or, “If marketing exceeds their budget by 10%, what’s the impact on this quarter’s operating margin?” I also have an income statement that allows me to perform financial modeling by adjusting variables to achieve a desired outcome. I can adjust the growth rate for the company, modify the percentage of sales and KPIs, and immediately see the changes in expenses and net income. With a single click, I can switch to a tabular view to see how the data rolls up line by line. The interactivity of Xcelsius dashboards allows me to see the data and relationships between variables. More importantly, it helps me immediately understand my business performance given different business scenarios. After I finish modeling my scenario, I can save this view and even e-mail it to co-workers. Now others at my company can view my saved scenario, better understand my plans, and contribute to the overall planning process. As you have seen, with SAP BusinessObjects Xcelsius Enterprise, you can: monitor key performance indicators in a highly visual and impactful way, transform complex data into interactive dashboards that enable any business user to gain clear insight into business performance, and answer questions and make informed decisions based on real-time changes in your business environment.
