What is the diff. b/n BOE XI3.1 and BO Edge BI. Which one do I need for SAP


I am doing a feasibility study on using BO for front-end reporting on top of SAP BI7.0. I have primarily been an SAP consultant and fairly new to BO. After reading various docs and blogs, I was able to get some understanding on how BO is intergrated with SAP. My primary goal is to be able to use BO's front-end tools like crystal reports, Xcelsius, Webi, etc, on data that is residing in BI7.0. My question is which componets do I need to download from the marketplace to realize this goal. I am a bit confused b/n BOE XI3.1 and BO Edge BI. What is the diff. between them and which one shud I use for BI. And where are the components installed? On BI server or WAS, or a brand new server. Also how are the BO objects transported with ref. to BI objects.

Appreciate your thoughts...
