Business Content for Business Functions

Hello there,

We are considering an upgrade to EHP5 for this year. We are now working on sandboxes and identifying the real scope of the upgrade. We have a mono stack (abap) ERP system.

We decided not to activate any Business Function (...) but we know the components to upgrade. We do a technical upgrade and upgrade components relevant to our Business. Business Functions will be then available and we'll activate it when Business needs it.

 

I spent a lot of time on the documentation and on the sap notes relative to Upgrade to EHP5 and something confuses me :

- The choice of Business Content (Portal Content/ XI Content / BI content).

 

Some Business Functions need Portal Content/ XI Content / BI content to work. As i understood... this content is needed for cross application processes.

But the fact is that we don't know which Business Functions will be needed in the future and if they'll need Business Content.

 

My questions are the following :

- Do i need to download this content now ?

- Will the Business Function not work if i don't install this content... or just a part of the BF won't work ?

- Can i install this Business Content later ? If a business function activation needs it...

- Is BI content installable on the ABAP stack ?... and EP content and BI content only installable on the Java Stack ?

 

Best regards,

Christian

    If any business function need these SP's then EP Conent/XI content will be on Portal system that time you need to connect your system to utilize this functionality. You can activate these business functions without these packages, only the configuration that depend upon this component will not work. BI Cont you can install on ABAP stack but you can connect your

    ABAP system to BI system to use this functionality.

     

    Thanks
