Some features of BI 7 are in BI 7.0 the ODS as renamed as DSO

2. and in BI 7.0 No need to create info source.. insted of this we can create Transformations and Data Tranfer Process.

3. In Infosets now you can include Infocubes 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 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.

6. 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 !

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

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