Offerings in SAP BI 7,2

In my previous blog Overview on Business ByDesign and My Journey at SAP so far, while decribing about ByDesign, I’d mentioned that the product uses the version 7.1 of SAP NW BI.

Now that raised quite some questions on what’s there in 7.1 – which was a special codeline for ByD and is not available in the market. I’d mentioned some features like hybridproviders and real time data acquisition. But there’s a lot more to it and the good news is that all of it is going to be available in 7.2 (Q1/2010).

It has features like:

  • Tighter integration with BOBJ tools
  • Accelerated Dataloads in Data Store Objects
  • Flexibilities offered in data staging
  • Enhanced administrative capabilities
  • New features in BW Integrated Planning

I came across an article on what is going to be there in 7.2, so I thought I’d spread the good word :-). You can get the details of all that I have mentioned above, in the article that I came across – What’s new with SAP Netweaver BW 7.2 and in 2010.

Have fun!

      I'm trying to make the tough decision of whether to be one of the first to upgrade to BW 7.20 or wait till it's more mature and then upgrade later.

      Curious to hear if any customers already have this upgrade planned and their reasons why they want to upgrade?

      Hi Alex,
      My opinion is that if 7.2 is an extension of 7.1, then the features should have been rigorously tested by ByDesign :-).But you are right, it could be that there are instabilities in 7.2 for additional features which were not part of 7.1.

      Hi,

      My opinion is if you run any FINBASIS component like BCS, then its better to wait it out to mature. Other than that extensive Bobj users, clients looking to implement explorer etc, should be looking to upgrade soon.

      Gokul
