Hi,

We currently have a single landscape for both BW and BW-SEM running BW 3.1 and SEM 3.2.

Now we have been asked to looking into separting BW and SEM to separate landscapes.

We need advice/recommendations on whether they should stay together or be separated.

Any body went through similar decision making process?

If so what decision you made and why?

Best Regards

Srini

Hello

We are in a similar situation.

We have one single landscape for BW 3.0B

and SEM 3.1B. Now we need to migrate to BW 3.5,

and we don't know if it's possible to separate

BW from SEM?

We have no access to this courses. How can we

get these information?

Thanks in advance

David,

the courses are available from SAP Education http://www.sap.com/education and search for the course ID.

BW 3.5 requires SEM 4.0.

David,

If your BW and SEM are on a single landscape, there is no need to separate it if performance is not an issue and you are okay to be tied to the SEM release cycle.

As Marc has said, BW 3.5 needs SEM 4.0 but if you split it, the SEM 4.0 system still needs and come with its own BW 3.5 system and you have to worry about RFC,etc. With BI Integrated Planning coming up, I would tend to recommend having a single set of landscape rather than seperate BW and SEM systems unless there is a compelling reason to split them.

Hi,

We have made a decison to keep BW and SEM together for now. Since SEM is now part of mySAP ERP delivery we may revisit this once we have converted our R3 systems to mySAP ERP and they stabilize.

Srini,

I suggest to have a look at the new BW-BPS course (BW370 or TBW45). Unit 18 contains information about landscape options including pros and cons.
