Hi Nagesh,

Difference between BW 3.5 and BW 7.0

1. Data Modeling Flow:

a. Create Data source

b. Create Info source

c. Create Transformations b/w data source and info source (earlier it was transfer rules)

d. Create Info Package

e. Create Info Provider (info cube or Data Store Object instead of ODS)

f. Create Transfer rules b/w info source and data targets (instead of Update rules)

g. Create DTP (data transfer process). To pull the data from Info package (i.e. from PSA) to Info Provider.

2. For Delta option in customized cube there is one new feature called – “Filter no new records” which is present in DTP’s of Data Store Object.

3. In Info sets now you can include Info cubes as well.

4. The Remodeling transaction helps you add new key figure and characteristics and handles historical data as well without much hassle. This is only for info cube.

5. The BI accelerator (for now only for info cubes) helps in reducing query run time by almost a factor of 10 - 100. This BI accl is a separate box and would cost more. Vendors for these would be HP or IBM.

6. The monitoring has been improved with a new portal based cockpit. Which means you would need to have an EP guy in your project for implementing the portal!

7. Search functionality has improved!! You can search any object. Not like 3.5

8. Transformations are in and routines are passed ! Yes, you can always revert to the old transactions too.

9. Data Transfer Process are in. It is used to pull the data from Info package (i.e. from PSA) to Info Provider.
