Installing Netweaver BW Content (BI_CONT) on BW/4HANA

Hi All,

Is it possible to install BW 7.5 version BI Content component (BI_CONT) on BW/4HANA system?

For context, I am trying to install some of the standard content dataflow in our BW/4HANA system. We have BW4CONT Release 100 SP 002 and BW4CONTB release 1000 SP 002 installed.

What I find when browsing through the content object is that a lot of old BI Content objects are not available in the BW/4 version. Only the HANA optimized content is available, and they are also very limited in number.

It would be great if there is an option to install the 7.5 version of the BI content in BW/4HANA and use them as template for our new data model. Kindly share if you know any workarounds.

Thanks in advance,

recently SP03 for BC on BW/4 HANA was released - SAP BW/4HANA Content

If the BC on a BW on HANA 7.50 is based on aDSO and CP, you can try to transport these objects on an BW/4HANA system otherwise you will stick to the BC delivered by the BW/4HANA system - SAP First Guidance – complete functional scope (CFS) for SAP BW/4HANA

Thanks Roland!

I will check with the basis team if they can upgrade the BI Content.

We are also looking forward to see more and more business areas and source systems (CRM, SRM, cloud systems etc.) being added to the BC.
