27 April 2015

It's not yet too late to start your SAP BI migration project!

SAP BI 4.1 has significant improvements over BI 4.0. It presents a number of highly anticipated features such as:

  • Improved stability and robustness;
  • New features and BI tools;
  • Better administration and data security; and
  • Mobility.


Why Migrate?

Any migration project requires careful consideration and planing to ensure the most appropriate path to implemention.

Why migrate to BI 4.1 solution?

  • Improved data access (native access to BW, multi-source universe, Excel data source, and more);
  • Improved ergonomics and advanced visualization mean a much better user experience;
  • New tools for new analytical needs (dashboarding, data visualization, big data);
  • Monitoring and enriched audit (e.g. integrated notifications followed the repository);
  • Rights and authorisations reinforced;
  • Mobility and portability built in;
  • Improved stability and robustness (over 4 years experience with BI 4 has lead to maturity in version 4.1)

How to migrate to SAP BI 4.1

A successful migration project requires:

  • Rigor in planning;
  • A clear method;
  • Experience and expertise;
  • Strong management.

Before starting the project, we recommend you evaluate:

  • The scope and sizing of the project;
  • Calendar: respecting resource availability of both IT and users;
  • Unavailability of the platform time;
  • End user training (DSI & Crafts);
  • Backup system, high availability, and regression plan.
