The data flow concept has been significantly improved with SAP BW release 7.0. Customers have got used to this new concept and are looking for examples, templates, best practices in BI Content, or they even want to use state-of-the-art BI Content productively. Data flows based on SAP BW 7.0 technology are also pre-requisite for the new concepts Real-Time Data Acquisition (RDA) and BW on HANA.
But, the majority of all delivered BI Content data flows is currently built with old SAP BW 3.x technology.
Taking these facts into account, SAP BI Content development plans to renovate the Business Content of SAP BW. Data flows from BW datasources to InfoProviders (InfoObjects, InfoCubes, DataStore Objects) that were developed and delivered using SAP BW 3.x technology shall be migrated to SAP BW 7.0 technology step-by-step. Especially, old SAP BW 3.x transfer and update rules shall be converted to SAP BW 7.0 transformations.
In order to focus the migration activities to the BI Content areas with most customer value, SAP compiled a short online questionnaire. SAP would like to ask you to fill in this questionnaire to get your feedback to this important topic.
