SAP BI 4.1 and SAP BW 7.5 compatibility

our organization installed new SAP BW 7.5 sps7 system.
Also we already have SAP BI 4.1 SP02 system.

We created a Web Intelligence report, data source is BW direct BEX query(I created connection in CMC before). The report works fine.

Also, just in case I go to PAM to check SAP BI and BW compatibility:

But I can't find our situation (Product - Web Intelligence, Connectivity - BICS Direct to BEx).

Can you tell me, in our situation is it fine(compatibility)?

PS: Now Webi report works fine, but we trouble for future.

The top two line for BICS with WebI is for Direct &/or through UNX. As per the PAM screenshot it clearly shows that you MUST be running BI 4.1 SP09 or better for support BI 7.5 SP7. The current version of BI 4.1 SP2 does NOT support BI 7.5 SP7. You will need to either update to SP9 or go to BI 4.2 SP3 or better in order to get support for BW 7.5 SP7++.
