SAP BO 4.1 with SAP BW / upgrade?

Hi experts,

based on the SAP BO 4.1 SP05 PAM, it is no problem to use BICS with SAP BW 7.02 SPS02+, what we actually have. Is there any BICS-advantage (performance, etc.) when we do an BW upgrade to 7.4?

kind regards

ryan

    Ryan - the backend of BW changes in 7.4 and that will help make reporting out of BI4.1 much easier - for better details than I can explain, I recommend looking at the slides for the Open SAP Course, BW on HANA at https://open.sap.com/courses/bwhana1

    Hi,

    Yes, absolutely that: Improved performance and interoperability enhancements. Our BI and BW developers work collaboratively to ensure fix and enhancements are ported into both products to ensure smooth integration. For example, the BICS API is updated.

    If you search on the component BW-BEX-OT-BICS you will see a number of fixes that are in BW 7.4.x that aren't ever in BW 7.2 - it is these corrections that the latest codelines of BI4.1 are leveraging.

    Regards,

    H

    Yes the performance of BICS is much better than if you use a universe.

    thank you 😊

    so if we don't use a hana-db (and we are not using the BI-IP and just want to use our existing data model - no new providers needed) the advantage will be better performance und a number of bug-fixes.

    kind regards
