SAP BI extractors vs. Business Objects for ETL process

An SAP user wants to know the benefits of using standard SAP BI extractors for an ETL process between SAP BW and SAP ERP

What are the main benefits of using standard SAP BI extractors, rather than a BusinessObjects Data Integrator (BODI), for an extract, transform and load (ETL) process between SAP NetWeaver BI (SAP BW) and SAP ERP?

SAP BI extractors are very well integrated with BI applications. There are standard extractors for all main applications, which have been stable since earlier versions of BI. These are easier to activate and enhance, and can have faster BI implementation. This is not the same in the case of BODI or any other non-SAP extractors. More time and effort are required for development, testing and implementation of these extractors.
