Business one and NetWeaver have nothing in common.

.NET versus ABAP or Java

small business versus international companies

MS tools or not tools versus all possible tools integrated in the GUI client

Database schema completely different

Etc. etc. if you can successfully switch from B1 to SAP BI, please share your experience next, because that will be a miracle. No previous experience will be used in the SAP BW/BI/BO field (in fact BO would be better than the core-Netweaver ones)

Dear Otto

I understand Nothing is common between BI and B1 , My query is whether my functional and tecnical Exp is counted or usefull in SAP BI

0 Kudos

technical exp from B1 counts very little in SAP BI.

functional depends. If that means B1 functional, than you can use like nothing. It that means a domain experience (you have worked in a factory, as a human resources manager, an accountant) than it definitely counts. But I doubt that is your case.

from my point of view this will be a hard start and from the very scratch.
