Does SAP still plan on phasing out BEx tools by 2016?
I've recently come across articles from 2009 through 2011 that discuss a phasing out of BEx (Query Designer, Report Designer, etc.) by 2016. Is this still in the cards for SAP or do they now plan on support BEx for the foreseeable future?

Shawn - this is not the right space for this - this should be posted in SAP Business Explorer (SAP BEx)
See SAP’s official statement on maintenance: http://scn.sap.com/community/business-explorer
“BEx 7x has no end of life” and continues to be delivered with the BW releases."
