ALERT: SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise (BOE) v3.1 End of Support – Dec 31st, 2015

ALERT: SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise (BOE) v3.1 end of support (EoS) notice– December 31st, 2015


SAP has informed HP of the end of support for BOE v3.1 on December 31st, 2015; HP is aligned to this end of support date as well.


The BOE license bundled with PPM 9.1x and 9.2x is perpetual and you can use the software past December 2015.


Post EoS date, HP will provide self-help, knowledge base or previously existing patches only.


If you wish to continue to using Business Objects Enterprise (BOE) with full vendor support as the reporting tool for HP PPM, you will need to purchase licenses directly from SAP. Extending support with the OEM licenses provided by HP PPM is not an offering from SAP


The table below lists the various reporting options for HP PPM today. If you decide to purchase BOE licenses directly from SAP, you may use them with the Oracle-based facts & dimensions tables (CP2.0).
