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.
