BI System Builders have successfully migrated their BI content and Business Analytics from XI 3.1 to SAP BI 4.0 using the new SAP Upgrade management tool. BISB maintain their live SAP BusinessObjects environment for the purposes of customer demonstrations and Proof of Concept. The image below is an example of the upgrade. It shows a Business Analytic on the new BI 4.0 platform. The Business Analytic was originally developed by BISB on the XI 3.1 platform and then upgraded to BI 4.0 . The Business Analytic has been developed using Web Intelligence (Interactive Analysis) and now leverages the new BI 4.0 charting engine.
BI System Builders have installed and configured the new BI 4.0 Business Intelligence Platform from SAP BusinessObjects to upgrade their live customer demo BI System. The installation is running in parallel to their existing XI 3.1 SP3 system on a Windows 64 bit quad core machine with 8 GB RAM. First impressions of the new BI platform are very positive. The picture below is taken from the BI System Builders installation and shows the BI Launch Pad, which is the new BI 4.0 version of the portal previously known as SAP BusinessObjects InfoView.
SAP have provided BI System Builders access to the new SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform known as BI 4.0 to further build out their BI System Builders customer demo live BI system. BI 4.0 succeeds the SAP BusinessObjects XI 3.1 release. We will be installing configuring and migrating our content to BI 4.0 over the coming days.
