why is SAP-BC replaced by SAP-Xi


I was told at SDN that it SAP has stopped support for SAP-BC and replaced it with XI ( of netweaver).

I did not understand by SAP-BC replaced with SAP-XI.

1. Is it just a name chage form BC to Xi or anything more has been


2. Can you tell me something more about why this has been changed and the important features of Xi and what it can offer more than SAP-BC

3. any study that compares BC to Xi.

documentation and information there. You can also try the SAP Help Portal at
