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 message has been edited. Last edited by: FP Mod Chuck,

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. "
