    Hi Kiran,

    Thanks for the link.

    The slide 14 contains the limitations of the old Bw authorizations. One of the limitations is

    Maintenance: Not changeable afterwards

    Can any one explain what it means. Does it mean we cannot change roles once we implent it.

    Thanks.

      Hi-

      The technical upgrade from BW to BI has not seen providing any real value to Business and SAP BW Users. However, there are some key components of BI 7 that can be activated to leverage some enhanced functionality of BI.

      The components are:

      1. Portal - Deliver web metrics reports & publish reports to the BI Portal

      2. Information Broadcasting - Enable an existing SOX report to be burst and binded and sent to a distribution list.

      3. Visual Composer - Create a small report for PMO that accesses data from multiple data sources including non SAP.

      4. Pre-Calculation Server - Create a workbook that takes one of our queries with the most calculations so that calculations happen offline.

      These are some quick wins. There are many things which need drill down.

      Cheers!

    Perhaps you could indicate how much you know already and what your opinion on some of the pro's and con's are, and then we can discuss it further?

    Otherwise you might just be bombarded with links to SAPHelp....

    Cheers,

    Julius
