Business Explorer and Business Intelligence Roles

Can someone answer the following questions about these 2 roles:

Business Explorer

pcd:portal_content/com.sap.pct/platform_add_ons/com.sap.ip.bi/Roles/com.sap.ip.bi.business_explorer_showcase

Business Intelligence

pcd:portal_content/com.sap.pct/platform_add_ons/com.sap.ip.bi/Roles/com.sap.ip.bi.bi_showcase

It appears the BI Role above has the Business Planning feature, but Business Explorer does not. Other than this, can someone explain the difference and why 2 seperate roles?

Also, if we give users the Business Explorer role, we do not want them to see the Bex Broadcasting tab that comes by default. Is the only way to avoid this is create a copy of this standard delivered ivew (contained in the Business Explorer Role) and remove this tab?

Can anyone share thoughts or experience with these 2 different roles and modifying?

Thanks, Mark.

    Business Explorer role is from 3.5 and BI role is new in 04s.

    You will have to create the copy and remove the unwanted iViews from the new role.

    You can set permissions at iView level (permission to specfc users for broadcaster iView) but it will be hard maintaining it.
