Webi reports and Universes migration from SAP BO 4.0 to 4.1

Hi Experts,

My client is planning to upgrade BO System from BO 4.0 to 4.1

We have created some Webi-reports and universes in SAP BO 4.0.

Is there any impact for existing BO 4.0 Webi-Reports and Universes if we upgrade from BO 4.0 to 4.1

    Hi Ravi,

    Addition to what Hardik mentioned you might also want to check the document here which talks about the bugs and which are fixed in BI4 SP1. You might not face a lot of issue wrt the migration of contents however as Hardik mentions as this release being Minor release.

    Cheers!!

    Ravi,

    my experience is that bug corrections in a later version sometimes may cause workarounds applied in earlier versions (just to make things working) not to work any more.

    Although this may be the exception my advise to customers is always to setup a sandbox system and test at least the critical reports in the new version before upgrading. For sure your customer may have to invest some time and effort on this but it is worth it.

    Which patch level has the 4.0 system of your customer? If they plan to upgrade from an early version of 4.0 (let's say 4.0 SP2) then I would definitely recommend them to do it over a sandbox first.

    Best regards,

    Stratos
