When will the SAP Notes regarding SBOP BI 4.0 SP5 be available?


since Friday the "SAP BusinessObjects BI Suite 4.0 Support Pack 5" software downloads are available


The corresponding SAP Notes containing the "Install Guide" (1775950), Release Notes (1775951), etc. are still not released.

Also on the information pages regarding SBOP BI 4.0 there is no sign of update.

When will information regarding the Service Pack 5 be publicly available?

With kind regards,

Philipp Schornberg

      For SAP moderators scanning these post - you might want to call attention to '/xi4_whats_new_en.pdf' guide page 79 second paragraph from bottom because it's probably reverse of that it says regarding RFC call numbers.

      'The BW system is then queried for only the required metadata.

      This greatly increases the number of RFC calls, the size of the metadata returned by the BW system,

      and the time it takes to refresh the query.'

    I have doubts about this release. My company was waiting a lot for this update, mostly because we wanted to create dashboards and show them directly in IPADs.

    As I understand the new version of SAP Dashboards (previously Xcelsius) can achieve this goal, but it also needs the BI platform 4.0 SP05. Is that correct?? (i think it is, have read it somewhere), but I can't find the EDGE version of this SP05. Is there any date for this release? or some document that clearifies somehow this topic?

    Thanks in advance for any info about this!
