BW-BPS vs. BI SDK

12 Views

Scenario:

You have a BW transactional infocube containing information.

You want to perform estimation and planning on the data.

You want a web based user interface.

You want to manage a large number of concurrent users (with appropriate locking).

You want sophisticated navigation capabilities and complex screen designs.

You do not want to execute any specific planning functions against the data, i.e. you do not want to do things like ALLOCATIONS, DISTRIBUTIONS, REVALUATIONS etc.

Do you use BW-BPS and create a planning framework and a web based user interface?

or do you use BI SDK to create a Java application against the BW data source and deploy it as an iView in an Enterprise Portal?

Which method is better?

I would like to have some opinions, best practices, etc.

Thanks very much, in advance for your contribution.
