  13. 13. ©2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company.

  14. 14. ©2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company.

All rights reserved. 16 Effort XI 3.1 BI 4.04.1 Upgrade Considerations to Crystal Reports Crystal Reports 20112013 and Crystal Reports for Enterprise All reports are by default upgraded to CR 20112013 Use “Crystal Reports for Enterprise” for BICS or UNX semantic layer. to Desktop Intelligence End Of Life* *DCP in 4.1 Need to convert documents to Web Intelligence, either before or after the upgrade with Report Conversion Tool. Xcelsius 2008 Dashboards Conversion to new format is optional. Old ones will still work (if using a ‘relative address’). Conversion adds new features (globalization, direct UNX queries) Explorer Explorer Information Spaces based on Excel are upgraded but will need re-indexing. Explorer to BW can’t connect to BW Queries (using UNV) in 4.0, only in B4.1 Voyager Analysis, edition for OLAP Voyager workspaces will upgrade to Analysis workspaces. Requires new connections of the exact same name in BI4. Web Intelligence Web Intelligence Fully upgraded. Depending on usage, some corrections may be needed in the reports Content conversion (1/3) Additional work required beyond typical upgrade: Minor effort = Significant Effort =
  17. 17. ©2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved. 17 Effort XI 3.1 BI 4.0 Upgrade Considerations Universe Design Tool (.UNV) No change None, universes and designer as in XI 3.x N/A Information Designer (.UNX) Relational UNV can be converted to UNX No authored universes for BW OLAP access. Now recommended to use drect BICS connection. ‘OLAP’ UNX universes recommended over other ‘OLAP’ UNV universes Business Views Designer No change No changes to business views Only supported with Crystal Reports 2011.

  18. 18. ©2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved. 18 Effort XI 3.1 BI 4.0 Upgrade Considerations LifeCycle Management Installer fully Integrated in BI 4.0. VM System remains separate If you want to keep the content in your ‘Version Management system’ you’ll need to upgrade it. Or you could just start fresh Report Conversion Tool / Report Comparison Tool No major change, except ‘.REP’s can not exist in BI4.0* Convert before or after the upgrade. BI4 tools allow for improved conversion rates. (Query on Query, Fold/Unfold, Show/Hide, Fit to page) Additional work required beyond typical upgrade: Minor effort = Significant Effort = Content conversion (3/3)

  20. 20. ©2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved. 20 From SAP BOE XI Rel.2 SP2 (and later) to SAP BI 4.1 Its an Upgrade Moving to SAP BI 4.1 from (at least) “BusinessObjects Enterprise XI Rel.2 SP2” is called Upgrade Its moving from an old Code line to the latest – 14.1.3.xxxx (SAP BI 4.1 SP3) Achieved via the “Upgrade Management Tool” - UMT The UMT is a Windows based GUI Tool For LINUX and UNIX available as CLI Comes with the installation of the Server components from SAP BI 4.1 It’s the replacement of the “Import Wizard” from legacy Versions There is only the UMT! There are information available like in Forums etc. where people like to move to a new Code line using different techniques These are “LCM”, “Promotion Management” or a CMS Database Copy These information are wrong! – There is only the UMT for Upgrading to SAP BI 4.1 from at least “BusinessObjects Enterprise XI Rel.2 SP2”
  21. 21. ©2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved. 21 From SAP BOE XI Rel.2 SP2 (and later) to SAP BI 4.1 The UMT The only Upgrade Resource Easy to use as GUI or CLI A total 1:1 Upgrade can be done within 4 Steps! Results are stored in a log File for better troubleshooting Run it multiple Times to get a feeling how long your Upgrade takes Run it multiple Times to get a feeling how the UMT behaves

  23. 23. ©2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved. 23 From SAP BOE XI Rel.2 SP2 (and later) to SAP BI 4.1 Best Practices for the UMT Apply the following BP Have a dedicated Environment with only the UMT installed Environment needs to have Power! Run all Upgrades only from this Environment Have Wave Upgrades instead of a Full Upgrade Can be decommissioned after the Upgrade has been successfully completed Follow the SAP Best Practices found here for the UMT

  27. 27. ©2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved. 27 From SAP BI 4.0 SPx to SAP BI 4.1 Please read the blog entry by Matthew Shaw: The update to BI4.1 from BI4.0 is the same process as applying a Support Pack. i.e. just apply the ‘patch’ software to update from BI4.0 to BI4.1. There is no need to install BI4.1 on a new machine, nor is there a need to move, or copy content from one repository to another. Indeed it’s vital that the CMS System Repository database is updated as part of the update process. http://scn.sap.com/community/bi-platform/blog/2013/11/05/doing-a-full-install-for-updating-from-bi40-to-bi41- think-again
  28. 28. ©2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved. 28 From SAP BI 4.0 SPx to SAP BI 4.1 Misconception: - Full install is needed for new features Unfortunately the BI4.1 update, BI4.1 SPx Update and BI4.1 Patch update documentation will have you incorrectly believe this. The following sentences in those guides are not correct: If you want to use of the expanded set of ERP Drivers available in this release, you will need to perform a full install and You must do a full installation to get the new features
  29. 29. ©2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved. 29 From SAP BI 4.0 SPx to SAP BI 4.1 Misconception: - Full install is needed for new features When the update is applied, only the existing software components are updated. All new features for those existing components will be updated. Any new components available will not be installed. To install new components, simply modify the original base installation and select the new components to install. The patch installer even provides a friendly reminder to do just this at the end of the update.

  31. 31. ©2013 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company.
