Why would it be not advisable to upgrade to BI7 now?

Hi Friends,

Why would it be not advisable to upgrade to BI7 now , speaking from BPS and BW perspective?

And is BW3.5 considered Netweaver ?

Hope to get your comments.

Regards

Sanjay Patel

    BW 3.5 in SAP speak is Netweaver 2004 and BI 7.0 is Netweaver 2004S.

    BW upgrade requires time, resources and money so each must do their cost benefit analysis and BW upgrade can impact or delay other BW projects. BI 7.0 offers significant additional functionality and performance gains, thus many are planning their upgrades sooner rather than later.

    In terms of BPS, one need to decide if you are doing a technical upgrade to either BW-BPS 7.0 or SEM-BPS 6.0 on BI 7.0 or if you want to move into BI Integrated Planning..

    Hope this helps,

    Mary

      Sorry, forgot to add that it is true that if you want to migrate planning applications already built in BPS into BI-IP, there are no migration tools provided by SAP currently and that it is very likely that you would have to rebuild the planning application on BI-IP.

      This has been asked at influencing council at ASUG a few times. The feedback is that SAP is aware of the interest in migration tools but there has been no commitment to offer them since BPS and BI-IP is very different architecturally. If enough customers asked for it, it may get pushed up higher in the priority list.
