SDK customization for an Infoview portal at a US educational and research institute
A globally respected university and research institute in the United States wanted support for BusinessObjects (BO) 6.5 after it was discontinued by a vendor. The university wanted to migrate to a new platform to enable customization, validation for data searches, and reduce maintenance costs of the STAR schema.
Infosys migrated the BusinessObjects-based reports from BO 6.5 to BO XI Release 2. It included more than 140 reports and the development of Java SDK customizations. We integrated the central user access management system to the product for report-level access. In addition, we converted 45 Oracle financial reports based on STAR schema to EDW.
Infosys Java SDK customization is illustrated in the diagram below:
Infosys ensured successful migration and undertook extensive customizations after rigorous testing. The university realized several benefits:
- Migrated to BO XI Release 2, which has enhanced analysis and reporting capabilities
- Reduced maintenance costs for STAR schema
- Achieved the same user experience within the stipulated time frame
