BW 3.5 as data mart

Hi folks,

Is anyone out there using BW 3.5 to serve as a data mart for a BI 7.0 system? Have you come across any technical problems/challenges in setting up such a scenario?

Cheers,

Rv

      Thanks Vamsi for coming back on this.

      Can u also confirm if this reqd any special consideration as far as the connectivity between 7.0 <-> 3.5 is concerned or even otherwise?

      Cheers!

    There wont be any connection required for 3.5 <--> BI 7.0. Both the objects can be used in the same box. You just need to assign 3.5 Object as source for BI 7.0 data target.

    Thanks...

    In that case also, you just need to define the source of BI 7.0 box as your 3.5 box (Basis will take care of this). And in the Source of BI 7.0 data target, define 3.5 onject.

    (its like treating 3.5 box as R3 box...all the steps will remain same)

    Thanks..

      Sure. In theory i agree the steps should be the same but wasn't sure if there vud b any limitations for setting this scenario up. So do you/your client have such a scenario existing right now?

    No. I am working on BI/IP project. But it should not be aproblem for you. As far as connecting the system go, BASIS does all the hard work. 😊

    Thanks..
