Difference in using BI 7.0 and BW 3x in SCM 5.0

Hi,

SCM 5.0 comes with BI 7.0 (SP9). I heard the BI system is unstable until SP 14. The question is does it make any difference using BI 7.0 and using BW3x, which is also option BI 7.0 gives with the transaction RSA1OLD.

Thank you.

      been on a couple of SCM 5.0 proj recently (upgraded ones) and invariably ended up using RSA1OLD

      i remember spending a lot of time trying to figure out juust how to load the cube fom the PSA... have not heard any BW consultants promising better performance in this matter by using BI7

      if your aim is to just load data and other uncomplicated stuff - go for SCM 3.5.

      personally when it comes to DW workbench , i think , Its the End that matters... not the Means

    Hi Visu,

    If you are not upgrading from a SCM 4.0 or SCM 4.1 system (which contains a 3.x BW component), I would recommend using the BI 7.0 functionalities in the SCM 5.0 box. The datawarehousing components in 7.0 (e.g. Transformation rules) is easier to implement in terms of configuration time.
