By following a few simple steps, Infor ViewPoint can be easily installed into the Infor Smart Office environment.  If you are a user of Infor Lawson BI then you have access to the ViewPoint product.  Note that this blog entry is intended to provide a visual look at installing ViewPoint and not intended to be a replacement for using our ViewPoint Installation Documentation. Our documentation always has the last word but the visual learners out there may benefit from this brief walkthrough of a ViewPoint Installation.

Look for future blog entries on the topics of loading a sample ViewPoint space and view, and setup setting up a ViewPoint standalone instance.

ViewPoint is:
•    A tool for designing highly interactive, visually rich dashboards and analytical applications

Benefits of using ViewPoint
