SAP BusinessObjects Licensing - Interpretation
I am just giving a example of understanding the SAP BusinessObejcts licensing.
Product : BA&T SAP Business BI Suite [user]
License Metric : User
Blocks : 1
Quantity : 2
Product : BA&T SAP Business BI Suite [CS] - We understand CS = Concurrent Session license
License Metric : Concurrent Session
Blocks : 10
Quantity : 1
What should we interpret from the above BOM, 5 Users & 10 Concurrent Sessions ??
