These items now become a standard part of the Bill of Materials and are included at no additional cost.

      Blair Wheadon or Derek Watson, how is this announcement changed/tweaked in light of the packaging options announced last week at SAP SAPPHIRE?

      No changes to this. This blog refers to the 'SAP BusinessObjects BI Suite' license, which was renamed with the Sapphire announcements to 'SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise Professional'.

      It still includes 8 cores of IQ, 8 cores of DI, and 1 CSBL of Power Designer as the blog describes.

      It still uses the same license material code.

      Is the IQ license included in the package restricted for use with the other packaged components or can it be used for other purposes as well?

      The IQ license is limited to being accessed by the BusinessObjects BI software, Predictive Analytics, and Data Integrator licenses that are included in the BI Suite license.

      Thanks, Blair
