SAP BI 4.0 can be downloaded as a PRE-GA Version for quite some time.. If you are an SAP customer with access to service.SAP.com (go to support) and the proper licensing in place you should see it, if not contact your SAP account representative.

Post subject: Business Objects XI 4.0 sub-forums

Hello Moderators,
I undersatand that BI 4 is not available for general release.
How ever this has been in ramp up for quite a while(the build date on our beta version is Feb 2011),some partners had it in ramp up for even longer.

Will the relevant sub-forums for BI 4.x be created only after BI 4 is in general release?

Thanks

If you are in Ramp-Up the Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) with SAP-BOBJ precludes you from posting info on a public site....therefore the BOB sub-forums for BI 4.x will need to wait for the GA.

Our plan is to use the "topic tags" such as what you see in the user group forum for version numbers. That way we'll continue to have a Webi forum but it will service all current releases.

Mico Yuk just talked to Steven Lucas and he gave her the GA date of Sept 16. The last day of TechEd Las Vegas. icon_smile.gif

p.s. Nic Smith also posted the GA date here (please note it is a blog and not a press release)...
