Future of BI-IP and SAP BPC Integration


Hello All,

I have been reading a lot about SAP BPC and looked at SAP BI Roadmap for the next 2 years. I have the following questions. Can anyone shed some light on their thoughts?

1) During 1H of 2008, SAP BPC 7.0 (Outlooksoft Version) of SAP Planning & Consolidation is planned to be released. What does this do with the future of BI-IP? Is it going to be sunset or will SAP still support it? Based on the roadmap, it looks like SAP recommends SAP BPC as planning Engine.

2) I am on BI-IP environment by early next year and would like to migrate to Outlooksoft front-end interface. When is the tentative schedule to release BPC 8.0 where Outlooksoft front-end interface can be a plug and play on BI-IP Cubes?

3) Where can I read more on SAP BPC and the licensing rates etc??

Thanks a lot for your responses.
