Web Intelligence reports over bex: Best design practices

Hi All,

It has been quite some time since I have been working with building WebI reports based on Bex queries and I am still trying to guage the value add that customers derive from webI over Bex.

In traditional data warehousing systems, Web Intelligence works perfect and has been able to provide a self service reporting system for the users.

With Bex, the most of the self service features are already fulfilled. Is Business Objects destined to be just a presentation layer over the Bex queries?

With BO 4.0 and the subsequent BICS connectivity, many features of Bex become limited as do the features of WebI.

I came upon a discussion already

http://scn.sap.com/message/13481313

which discusses this issue but I would like to get some views and understanding on the advantages I can communicate to the customer that web intelligence has over bex.

Thanks and regards,

Vinayak
