XI or BI

0 Kudos

Hi There,

in a dilema about thi! I'm looking for a career change but to something where I can still use my existing skills(Portals, J2EE, HTMLB, Web Dynpro, Web Technologies...). I'm thinking about XI or BI. I prefer the technical side of SAP so not sure which one is best for me. Please help...

Regards,

Raj

XI is more about migration of technologies in SAP and BI is a data warehouse thing. In XI u need ABAP n JAVA knwledge.

Hi Raj G

XI is configuration part. It has some scenarios like FILE TO FILE, FILE TO IDOC, FILE TO JDBC, PROXY TO PROXY, HTTP TO SOAP...etc.

ABAP is useful when u come across FILE TO IDOC or IDOC TO FILE, PROXY TO PROXY.

Here u should be familiar with IDoc t/codes like

WE02/05/09 - T/codes for seeing IDocs

WE21 - PORT definition

WE20 - partner profile

& so on...

For PROXY TO PROXY u should be familiar with OO ABAP.

Coming to BI , it is advanced BW where loading is done & which requires less/no coding.

ABAP + BI is good both oppurtunity as well as career wise.

cheers!
