We are about to implement a BI-Portal integration for information broadcasting soon. At present we are planning to integrate BI and it's BI runtime portal for information broadcasting - and our BI Portal does not have KM or TREX yet.
I would just like to confirm one issue. I've read materials but I'm still not 100% sure on this issue: does Information Broadcasting require the KM installation together with the EP?
It says on the FAQ:
In addition, using Broadcasting not only using e-mail but also with the SAP NetWeaver Portal requires the additional installation of a J2EE Server with SAP NetWeaver Portal or KM.
What I understand, do correct me if I'm wrong, is that when you publish into the Portal - it will reside on the PCD or in WebDAV (KM).
Question: is it mandatory to install KM for this scenario? Or can information broadcasting live by without KM?
I believe there are benefits on having KM - like subscriptions or have it accessible via BEx Portfolio under the business explorer role in the portal.. but I'm quite confused as to requiring to have KM installed.
Thanks in advance all.
