BO XI/XI R2 vs BO X3 clarification? Creating Univ on BI objects.



I took some lessons on XI/XI R2 Business objects some time ago.

Now I am ready to delve into BO and as I research, I find much new versions.

1. What is the most recent version of BI, ist it BO X3?

2. Do you know of any document to help me move from XI/XI R2 to the newer version? i.e. an update document or link?

3. When I studied XI/XI R2, the Universes were all created with a relation database (Oracle) as the source of our data.

Now, with this new BO you mentioned in 1) above, how do you create universe for sap BI/BW cubes in Business objects

Can anybody tell me the steps to create universe for SAP BW CUBES from Business objects software.

4. I have access to a BI system at a monthly fee, and they also offer access to BO at a different fee, if I get access to both systems, where to I begin to link the two system?

In addition to links that you may provide, your discussion in plain English on these questions will be greatly appreciated.

I do hear a lot about Xcelsius and Crystal Reports with respect to the discussion of BO X3 although these were never mentioned in my BO X1 R2 discussions. Are Xcelsius and Crystal Reports part of BO now?
