Some features of BI 7 are

1. In Infosets now you can include Infocubes as well.

2. 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.

3. The BI accelerator (for now only for infocubes) 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.

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

5. Search functionality hass improved!! You can search any object. Not like 3.5

6. Transformations are in and routines are passe! Yess, you can always revert to the old transactions too.

There are many more...but for starters i hope this answers your questions.

In 3.5, suppose I want to locate an infosource. I will have to go to the infosource tab in RSA1 and then search.

Also I cant search for any free text.

This has been improved in BI 7. In case of BI 7, in RSA1, we have a new tab called search, (i think below source systems) where u can search any object. Like a normal windows search which will search any text across all folders !! Hope this clarifies....

And yes, If one wants to go back to the old administrator workbench, then he simplpy hass to run transaction rsa1old!!
