Tuesday, November 3rd, 10AM PST/1PM EST

When faced with a BusinessObjects XI 3.1 to BI 4.1 Migration with few resources and a tight budget, Carroll Community College used their “smarts” and looked for efficient and cost-effective solutions to assist them. Carroll Community College Data Analyst, Daniel Demissie will explain and demonstrate how their organization utilized each of the 360 Tools to rationalize and migrate to BI 4.1. They used 360 Eyes to prepare for the migration and determine what actually needed to be migrated, 360 Plus for the actual migration of content and 360 View that they currently use as their primary security tool to maintain their BusinessObjects operations.

This session will look at each of the 360 Tools and how they interact with BusinessObjects in relation to migration, auditing, security, and maintenance.

Presenter: Daniel Demissie, Carroll Community College

Back to Tracks and Agenda

Presenter: Evan Davies, InfoSol Inc.


A working knowledge of the SAP BusinessObjects and Administration is required


This session will cover the main aspects of migrating from XI 3.1 to BI 4.0/BI 4.1.  It will review the key milestones and decisions that need to be made and will review the major components of an effective migration plan: from the setting up of the new BI 4.0/BI 4.1 system through the process of migrating the content from the source system to the process of go-live on the new platform.  Main topics will include

  • Installing single/distributed BI 4.0/BI 4.1 server and client tools
  • Auditing your existing system to determine the scope of the migration
  • Building the project plan – order of events and dependencies
  • Managing public and private content
  • Migration tools – the Upgrade Manager – usage and parameters
  • Configuring & Testing the new platform
  • Go-Live activities and dependencies
  • Managing the new BI 4.0/BI4.1 environment – how does this compare to XI 3.1

This session will be delivered through seminar, demonstration and hand-on exercises.  Some key migration reference material will also be made available to attendees at the end of the class.
