When to use Multi Source unx?

We’ve recently moved to BO4.3 from BO3.1 and I’m in discussions with a user about pulling data from two different data sources into their report. I know there’s rarely a hard and fast rule, but under what circumstances would I perhaps think about building a multi-source unx universe, rather than just having the user merge data from two queries within their report? I’ve been looking online and I can find plenty of “how” to do this, but not much on “why” you would build a multi-source unx. Any advice, most welcome, thanks.

I wouldn’t and we don’t plan to. SAP has announced that they will not be putting further development into the multi-source universes and that they will be deprecated after BI4.3.
