BI 7.0 Frontend vs. 3.5 Frontend for SAP GUI 7.10 upgrade???

Former Member

We are installing the new SAP GUI 7.10 and trying to decide whether to

go with the BI 7.0 Frontend or BW 3.5 add-on. I cannot find any

documentation on the advantages / disadvantages / features between the

two versions. Is there any difference in functionality between the two

if you install the latest version of each?

Thanks for your replies!

Hi,

It is totally new look and feel and many functionalities like design tool bar, planning and use of Excel functions etc. have been added in BI7.0 Bex .

BI7.0 Bex requires a lot of user training which means more time and money .

It all depends upon how much time and money you have for upgrade.

It is less riskeir and advisable, first do a backend technical upgrade with Bex 3.5 add-on and then do functional upgrade later (release functionalities in phased manner to user community).
