  17. 17. BI Platform ServicesBI Platform (fka BO Enterprise) is strategic for all SAP BusinessObjects Clients Analysis 1.0 on SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1 – Central provisioning of BW connections – Client-side Single-Sign On – Saving and sharing workbooks centrally (common xls / ppt InfoObject) Analysis 1.1 on BI platform 4.0 – Support system-type connection – Server-side and client-side Single-Sign On – Saving and sharing workbooks centrally (common xls(x) / ppt(x) InfoObject) – Interoperability with other clients: Web Intelligence, Crystal Reports and SAP BusinessObjects Analysis, edition for OLAP based on analysis view SAP recommends using BI platform for productive use of the Office Add-in, as BI platform supports main services such as central repository including security, interoperability and, in future, lifecycle management. But you can also use it without BI platform and store and distribute workbooks locally or on any share drive – often used in testing environments.© 2011 SAP AG. All rights reserved. Confidential 18

  20. 20. SAP Business Explorer (BEx)Maintenance BEx 7.0 continues to be delivered with the next SAP NetWeaver BW releases. At this point in time, there‘s no planned end of life. The maintenance period is renewed with every major BW release. BEx 3.5 is part of BW 3.5/SAP NetWeaver 04 and the maintenance cycle is coupled to this release (see SAP note 1410878). As BEx 3.5 is also compatible with a BW 7.0 backend and had been delivered with BW 7.0, SAP will maintain BEx 3.5 functionality within BW 7.0 and subsequent releases until the end of BW 7.0 maintenance cycle. Maintenance is NOT extended with BW 7.30 or other future releases. Note that full PAM support of BEx 3.5 cannot be granted by SAP – as Microsoft has removed, e.g., support for some components within Windows 7 that had been used by BEx Web Application Designer 3.5. Also see: BEx Analyzer and Analysis, edition for MS Office You can install BEx and Analysis on a single PC. Only one add-in can be active in an Excel session (in other words, either BEx or Analysis can be active) Opening a BEx workbook activates the BEx add-in.© 2011 SAP AG. All rights reserved.
