Hi All,

On of our client is planning to upgrade from BW 7.0 to 7.5. They are currently using the below features in 7.0-

  1. BEx Analyzer
  2. Report Designer
  3. Web Application Designer
  4. RDA
  5. SEM BCS

I just want to know whether there is any hurdles in migrating these to BW 7.5 ? Is any of these tools are obsolete in 7.5 ? Is there any special case that we should keep in mind for migrating these ?

Appreciate your time and effort, points will be assigned. Kindly provide your inputs.

From my project experience on BW 7.5, I can say BEx Analyzer very much alive and loveable. Though, they have given option to create query in HANA Studio as well. But there is one limitation of the same, if a query is touched upon/created/edited in HANA Studio, it can not be edited in BEx Analyzer as it shows some authorization error.

Also, you can check below link which shows support of first three tools in 7.5

For RDA, check below link:

For SEM BCS, please see below link (Though SAP is moving more towards ACDOCA table and simplified extractors)

And last but not the least, document in below link will help you guide in upgrade.
