Find out who ideally should be on a project team responsible for upgrading to SAP NetWeaver BW 7.3, along with potential trouble spots to watch out for. Also learn why it may be a good time to consider an upgrade.

From his perspective, Dr. Bjarne Berg of Comerit thinks SAP NetWeaver BW 7.3 is a solid upgrade to invest in.

In a recent interview with me, Berg—an SAP NetWeaver BW expert and speaker at our recent BI 2012 conferences in Las Vegas and Milan, Italy—said the development time spent on version 7.3 should make companies confident in its value.

“It was tested extensively and spent two, three years in the development cycle,” he said. “I don't think there's any reason to hold back anymore.”
