Old habits die hard icon_razz.gif.
Also, still widely known in the UK as "BO", maybe thats the, commonly, known English irony coming through!
However, the new and trendy term is "Bobj", I had trouble typing it earlier icon_mrgreen.gif

[quote="Mak 1"]So even though SAP have dumped the "XI" moniker for the latest release, we will still probably call it "XI4.0 icon_smile.gif
Officially they'll be calling BI4.

The user conference is less than 2 months away. It will be interesting to see if SAP launches GA by that time. I was planning at the end of last year to move to BI 4.0 SP1, once SP1 came out. I thought it'd be around Nov.-Dec. for a rollout through our development, functional, and QA regions.

I think you meant to say BI 4.1 and not SP1. Currently, BI 4.0 is already in SP02 Patch 3, even though it is not in GA yet.

If I have to guess, I think BI 4.0 will be in GA before TechEd Las Vegas. It is not going to wait till October.

Yeah, first service pack after GA. No need to leave a stable XI 3.1, especially when there will be some small backlash about Deski disappearing. In the meantime, it's givening us longer to convert old Deski reports to Webi.

I just feel that SAP does not want to answer any more GA question at Tech Ed Las Vegas when they are doing all the presentations using BI 4.0. In my humble opinion, I think the odds is pretty good. But it is just my gut feeling and I did not hear it from my friend's roommate's cousin. icon_smile.gif

A dutch SAP BO representative claims it's downloadable within one week from the known sap-support site. So it seems they are going for the 31st of august (as claimed in the blog post above)
