BusinessObjects XI offers a set of administration tools that allow you to manage your deployment. These tools offer a visual interface to your reports, report instances, schedules, and servers. Some of these tools, such as the Central Management Console and InfoView, are front ends to the InfoStore and FileStore, and their functionality can largely be replicated by using the SDK. Other tools such as the Import Wizard are utilities designed for a very narrow purpose (such as the BusinessObjects XI migration example listed later in this chapter), and their functionality is not intended to be replicated programmatically. In this chapter, we’ll examine these tools and utilities, and you’ll learn how you can leverage them in your daily administrative responsibilities.
