LMBI consolidation component


Based on the user classification, the consolidation component
counts the number of licenses required. The underlying
contract model determines which user classification results
into which license requirement.
The consolidation component of LMBI 3 considers all
measured user classifications for the license calculation.

*) Classification depends on user rights which are set on folder level. That is currently not part of the license measurement of the LMBI

Integrated versus Stand-alone systems


Where BI systems draw or are fed their data from a classical SAP solution, such as SAP Business Suite or SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse , the (indirect)
use of these application requires a license as the BI users are also considered as users of the underlying SAP application. Thus, where integrated scenarios are
deployed at a customer, LMBI determines the necessary SAP application user.
Where licensing of integrated and stand-alone systems is handled differently, the details are explained on different slides.

SAP named user licenses:


These can be consolidated both within SBOP BI and with SAP Classic named user
licenses according to the provided hierarchy.
Example:
(1) A SAP Application Business Expert User license covers all roles in SBOP BI and SAP Classic (except developer).
(2) An employee which require a BI Limited User license (only covers one content type) and a Standalone Business Analytics Professional
user license (does not cover integrated scenarios) will either require both licenses or one Business Analytics Professional license.

SBOP BI engines:
An option to consolidate only exist for licenses of the same contract model with named
user metric (NUL) except for BI Edge.

Example: A customer runs two SBOP BI installations.


(1) If both are licensed with a BI Suite contract, one BA&T SAP BusinessObjects BI Suite platform license will cover the user IDs of an
employee in both installations (additional licenses will be required for editor rights).
(2) If one is licensed with a BI Suite contract and one with a BI Package contract, the employee will need both a BA&T SAP
BusinessObjects BI Suite platform license and a SAP BusinessObjects BI Package platform license to cover user IDs on each system. The
two platform licenses of these different license models cannot be merged.
(3) If both (productive) systems use a CPU or a CSBL (or CAL) license, the deployed number of sessions will be added.

SBOP BI A-la-carte/Legacy licenses:


These can only be consolidated among each other within the same contract model.
Example:
(1) An employee which acts as a SBOP Web Intelligence user in one installation and as a SBOP Web Intelligence Interactive user in
another installation, both covered via a A-la-carte contract, will require one SBOP Web Intelligence user license.
(2) Licenses from an A-la-carte contract and a Legacy contract can not be consolidated.

Consolidation

General consolidation rules


Concurrent session based license (CSBL) metric:

CPU metric:

Users can be created as concurrent user


Each productive system has to have its own set of CSBL licenses. A
CSBL license cant be used in two productive systems unless it is
split up (if applicable).
The number of CSBL licenses of all productive systems is added up
The number of CSBL licenses of a non-productive system may not
exceed the total number of CSBL licenses (not controlled by LMBI). If
this is the case, CSBL licenses deployed in non-productive systems
are not considered.

Users can be created as concurrent user


For integrated scenarios, all users (named and concurrent users!)
require an additional named user license
(A-la-carte: Business Information User, Legacy: Employee User)
All rules from CSBL apply accordingly
Exception: Non-productive system in Legacy contracts require a
separate T/D license.

Concurrent access license (CAL) metric:
