As we reach the mid-point in 2023, customers who are still on SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.2 release versions should be planning and finalizing the move to the latest BI 4.3 release.

As stated in the SAP Analytics Business Intelligence Statement of Direction, version 4.2 will reach end of priority one support at the end of 2024.
With BI 4.3 Support Package 3 available since December 2022, already several thousands of customers are live on version 4.3.

 

The release of SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.3 was far more than just a technical upgrade.
It came with some major new enhancements from both the Administrator and User perspectives.
These could be broken down into the categories of:

  1. Hybrid: Provide a tighter integration between BusinessObjects BI and SAP Analytics Cloud

  2. User Experience: Harmonize user experience and foster adoption with Fiori like experience

  3. Enterprise Readiness: Enhance ease of deployment and support latest industry standards


 

So aside from planning the technical upgrade to 4.3, system owners and project manager would also need to consider the end user adoption of the new user interfaces and review possible hybrid scenarios with SAP Analytics Cloud.

To aid customers making the final push, we have a two part series of webcasts to help you see all the major advances that have been introduced since BI 4.3 from the base release through to Service Pack 3. These are complimented with details on upgrade paths and deployment support.
