In addition

The latest BI release in SAP NetWeaver 7.0 (2004s) includes a new type of DataSource for which our staging BAPI has not yet been aligned.

Third party ETL tool vendors can therefore only implement their load processes using the original type of DataSource from BW 3.x. This DataSource is still provided in the new release without any changes. Upgrading to NetWeaver 7.0 (2004s) BI (BI 7.0) does not therefore endanger existing implementations based on BW 3.x and NetWeaver 2004 (BW 3.5).

It is also possible to migrate third party ETL implementations based on BW 3.x into the new data-flow concept of a NetWeaver 7.0 (2004s) BI environment using new DataSources, transformations (also new), and data transfer processes (DTP) (also new). This is possible because the system provides an emulated view for BW 3.x DataSources, which makes it possible to combine them with NetWeaver 7.0 (2004s) transformations and DTPs for regular batch load processing (this does not include direct access and real-time data acquisition (RDA)).

This allows the benefits of the new data loading concept to be made available in such third party ETL-based loading scenarios.

Hope it Helps

Your 3.5 stuff should be OK. As for migrating to any of the BI 7.0 (aka 04s) functionality, I don't believe at this time however, there is support in the new DTP (ETL) for 3rd party pkgs like Informatica. Not sure about anything on the query side.

Another recent post mentioned a recent deal between SAP and Informatica that makes it sound like Informatica will be taken care of.
