my question is ... As of now i have completed my abap course but i dont have that much confidence as i'm not very good at programming, so i have decided to learn SAP BW over SAP BI as some of them suggested that to learn BI we should have knowledge on BW. i have joined BW course recently, (also i have 2.6 years of gap which will help me in fetching the job). But now my friends are saying that SAP BO has replaced even BI. Now i'm shocked and in dilema what to learn. please suggest me in this regard. Is really BO has replaced BI? what is the impact of SAP BO on SAP BI and on SAP BW? if I continue to do SAP BW, how long can i survive?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Buss Objects is bought my SAP. It doesn’t mean that whole BI is going to change. But its good to learn BI + ABAP together. & If possible have knowledge of BO

Another perspective on this topic comes from SAP expert Axel Angeli on SearchSAP. Axel predicts that BO demand will outdo BI demand in the SAP marketplace.

who said that BO is replacing BI/BW this is just another conceptual mistake that has encompassed the market, BO is just a powerful BI tool the SAP BW platform is Netweaver, if I am wrong please tell me of any product in BO that creates cubes has a PSA or a DSO the only portion of BW that BO might replace is the Bex reporting tool provided within BW, SAP Netweaver BI 7.x is where the actual BW is and has always been even BO 4.0 does not have the storage concepts of Netweaver.

    BI/BW has becomed a somewhat defocused aspect of the world of business reporting and analytics in the world of SAP.

    Under the moniker of Business Objects, SAP has launched and modified the BO toolset and it now includes business integration objects like Data Integrator  which is much more advanced.

    The advent of HANA has further complicated things as businesses consider moving back to core ERP for not just tactical but also strategic reporting.
