BW BPS - SEM-BCS - OUtlooksoft, i'm lost !!

Post by pirlouis » Wed Jun 04, 2008 4:49 am

Good morning,

I create this post to clarify the situation on the tools provided on BI platforme for Business Planning and budget design.
I already worked on previous version of SEM- BPS. but today i sudty the new tools and functionnalities and i find that now SEM BPS is called BW-BPS and it is replaces in BW by Intergrated Plannig which seems to be simpliest.
But what is the tools SEM BCS ?
What is differences with BW-BPS ?
DOes it an additionnal tools after BW or is it includes in BI or neatweaver ?
WHere i can find presentation on functinnalities and architecture ?

And final question what about Outlooksoft ? i participated to a Business Object presentation and they told that Business Planning WIll be OutlokkSoft, but do you know what is the roadmap ?

Thanks FOr your answers,

SAP is stating that BW and SEM will go away (actually depends who you speak with at SAP). It will maintain support for existing clients (for a while) and will sell if you ask for it specifically.

OutlookSoft part of the new toolset Business Objects that SAP is planning to rollout in the next few years in a phased approach that replaces BW, SEM, etc. It has a couple of different flavors, if you will, using OutlookSoft, Crystal Reports, etc.
