BEx retire to Analysis for MS Office and Lumira 2.0 -- Are they free

Hi All,

We have BW 7.5 on HANA - BWH and BW 7.3 on Oracle - BWO

We used BEX and WAD mainly on BWO , some BEx are even used in BO 4.2 WEBI reporting as well.

Now with BWH we want start new , we want to create reporting using Analysis for MS Office and Lumira 2.0 tools. But our question is does we need to have Business Objects license in full ? and separate servers which was not the case with BEX tools it was free with BW.

Is this well thought step from SAP forcing to buy new tools , we understand teh power of HANA so we are moving on BWH , but reporting should come as free with BWH like BEx.

Any thoughts how companies are managing this cost? What business benefits we get with this BO extra buy?

    Buying the products should be a discussion with the SAP Account Executive; you can also just use the clients and not install on the server, depending on the use case. SAP is investing in Analysis Office and it has easy to use features (no training required) and is a hybrid client, meaning it can be used on premise or in the cloud.
