BI Content

BI Content is delivered as an add-on to SAP BI. The naming is SAP NW 2004s BI Content Add-on 3 SP02. This is referred to as BI Content below.

Purpose

BI Content is a pre-configured set of role and task-related information models that are based on consistent metadata in SAP Business Intelligence. BI Content provides selected roles within a company with the information they need to carry out their tasks.

This information model includes integral roles, workbooks, queries, InfoSources, InfoCubes, DataStore objects, key figures, characteristics, update rules, and extractors for SAP applications.

BI Content can:

·         Be used in particular industries without being modified

·         Serve as a template or an example for customer-defined BI Content.

In addition, Demo Content, which includes example data and can be used as display material, is available with SAP Business Intelligence.
