Is Embedded BW available in ECC 6 EHP 7? Most of what i read says that it is availble in combination with SAP Hana (powerd by). Is there a clear document of what we need to do?

Embedded BW should be there. It's been around for quite a while.

To be able to "use" it in an Embedded Analytics scenario, there are two options I guess. I once tried the "old" (non-HANA - not in the picture back then) Embedded Analytics scenario at a customer and there are (or at least were) some documents out there (in the old Embedded Analytics forum, not sure where to retrieve that info nowadays), but they weren't very clear/complete.

Anyways, should you be interested in an Embedded Analytics scenario I would suggest to investigate the HANA option as it's a lot easier (more clear) and probably more stable (and better support in case you encounter issues - back in the day, we had a SAP call open for a couple of months for, what actually seemed to be, a very simple issue).

Raf is right - BW has been there a while inside ERP - see https://blogs.sap.com/2012/03/25/what-are-transient-providers/ - but it is very slow.

Thanks for you answers. I will start investigating with my Basis Colleague what i will take to deploy the HANA option. But for my understanding it does not mean that we have to move our complete ECC to HANA is it?
