    Hi Madhavi,


    It is good to learn SAP as per the current market.Now almost each and every company implementing SAP.


    BI is very good Reportig tool as well as data staing and also for all new dimentional Products BI will act as a Source.


    Recently SAP purchased Business Object also.As you know BO is also reporting tool.But for BO also we can use BI as a source.


    Main Imp of BI :


    Flexible to Impliment


    Query desigining is simple.


    Reports will directky display in Excel itself.So that user can analyse the reports.


    Above are sample eaxmples.


    So my  suggestion do not  hegitate to learn BI.Very Good desicion.

    SAP Bi   Is a good module where you find always demand as all the companies who are currently  using reaping profits

    and all other companies who are not using .They will find the use of SAP BI  in future

    because these modules holds a data not only the recent years but also   having the capability of extracting Historical data
