Explorer on BW Only Possible?


I have been asked to investigate if Business Object Explorer is supported on BW 7.3 and 7.4 and or there is a work around for BI 4.0 SP7 and or BI 4.1 SP3? I have read the admin guide and it mentions that OLAP data sources are not supported.

When I recently spoke with a person from SAP, they said that they thought Explorer 4.0 was supported for BW.

I tried to clarify that we do not have BWA or Hana, just BW. I have read where it might be possible to use Explorer on a BW DSO with a universe, but this is not very useful to us, unless we were to create DSOs out of calculated results from cube.

Can anyone clarify this? Our CIO and CFO like the presentations they have seen on Explorer and do not understand why we cannot use it with SAP BW.
