[CLOSED] Business View and Dimension View best practices

In the process of enhancing metadata and was wondering if there are any best practices for when to use a Business View and and when to use a Dimension View?

It does not look like they can coexist? As when you add a business view, the dimension view does not show to the user anymore in InfoAssist.

I like that the dimension view allows you to specify a hierarchy (i.e Date Hierarchy). That does not seem like an option in the business view.

The business view seems to allow better control at grouping dimensions.

This is actually a new feature of 8.201. According to the doc https://webfocusinfocenter.inf..._lang/source/bvp.htm , there's now something called BV+ which it says:

"combines the power and capabilities of Business View (BV) and Dimension View (DV) into one feature that allows a customized view of the data source and enables the use of joins, measures, hierarchies, attributes, expressions, and filters. This allows for robust report, chart, document, and visualization development using a customized logical view of a data source. "
