In SAP BW, it seems that whatever you need is in Business Content. So why would you need to use the other sections?
Business Content is provided to speed up and reduce development time by using the pre-packaged and delivered templates. It is possible that in many cases you won't be able to use Business Content as it is by just installing it. SAP has included a variety of objects and templates to achieve most of the standard functionalities through business content. But business processes and analytics vary across companies. For this reason, a lot of customization will be required to build a reporting solution. In many cases, companies might choose to have custom-developed applications rather than with Business Content.
