Business Content is delivered as an add-on to SAP BW. The naming is BI Content 3.5.3 Add-On SP06. This will be referred to as Business Content below.


Business Content is a pre-configured set of role and task-relevant information models based on consistent metadata in the SAP Business Information Warehouse. Business 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, ODS objects, key figures, characteristics, update rules, and extractors for SAP R/3, Business Applications, and for other selection applications.

Business Content can:

         be used in particular industries without being modified

         be modified, meaning you can work with it to any degree of detail

         serve as a template or an example for customer-defined Business Content

Moreover, Structure linkDemo Content, which includes example data and can be used as display material, is available to you with the SAP Business Information Warehouse.

Implementation Considerations

On one hand SAP Business Information Warehouse's comprehensive Business Content enables a quick and cost-effective implementation. On the other hand, it provides a model that can be used as a guideline during implementation using experience gained from other implementations.


SAP Business Information Warehouse delivers pre-configured objects under the collective term “Business Content”. These objects speed up the implementation of the SAP Business Information Warehouse because they deliver complete solutions for business information requests.

Business Content includes:

         R/3 extractor programs


         Process chains



         Data targets (InfoCubes and ODS objects)


         Data mining models



         Crystal Reports

         Web templates
