Trade BW Foundation - BI Content

Dear All,

I would be commencing a SAP BW 7.0 implementation under IS-Retail source system in a few days. For this, I was going through the available Business Content documentation on SAP and found an unfamiliar term called 'Trade BW Foundation'. Upon further reading I can probably make out that it is delivered in BICONT 7.04 and above and implements the Layered Scalable Architecture (LSI) model.

I do not have any idea of the same which lead me to the following doubts -

1. What is 'Trade BW Foundation'?

2. If it does, how does it affect the existing ways that we used to implement BW for IS Retail?

3. What if I use the traditional methods of implementing BW (0RT_C01)?

4. Are there any additional settings that I need to maintain?

5. In case I want to implement the Trade BW Foundation Business Content (first layer ODSs and then InfoCubes provided in Standard Content) will it give me the same results as the traditional method of implementation.

Any guidance/references on the said topic are highly appreciated.

Thank you.
