Structuring the Business Information Warehouse forum

I found that the BW forum is getting a bit crowded the last days. I'd like to see the following additional topics in this area:

- BW Logistics extraction

Every fourth question or so seems to be about Logistics extraction (despite Roberto's nice weblogs)

- BW Web Reporting

Another topic that gets a lot of traffic. And you also have the problem that half of the questions look like greek to the 'standard' BW user

These topics also have the advantage that they are clearly recognizable and everyone knows what to post there and what not.

The separation between Business Information Warehouse and BW Implementation as we have it today is not really helpful which leads to some double posts.

Best regards

Dirk

P.S.: Mark, I'll try to be in Walldorf on April 19th-20th.

    Hi Dirk !

    You are completely right...actual double BW Forums are not so useful if organized in this way (implementation or not, this is not a good discriminant...)

    ..but I wouldn't this type of structure, as in SAP community:

    -Data Warehousing

    -BI Platform (OLAP, Data Mining)

    -Query, Reporting and Analysis

    -Business Content

    -Administration & Performance

    -Implementation

    -General

    , because it's not so immediate to understand, and, I believe, it's a bit dispersive...

    However, WEB deserves a dedicated section, no doubt !

    Bye,

    Roberto

    I would echo Dirk's suggestion and add BPS / SEM as a forum under BIW as well.
