For clarification, in 2008, SAP used the term “business intelligence” in two ways:
- SAP BusinessObjects BI solutions
- SAP NetWeaver BI
In order to remove confusion, the term business intelligence is now associated only with the solutions from the SAP BusinessObjects portfolio.
SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence (BI) is no longer used and instead we refer to the following:
- SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (BW)
- SAP Business Explorer (SAP BEx)
- SAP NetWeaver BW Accelerator (BWA)
We hope this helps clear up the confusion.
