    There is only one option for converting UNV universes to UNX universes - the Information Design Tool. The purpose of the Upgrade Management Tool is to migrate content from pre-BI 4.0 (XI R2 SP2+, XI 3.0, XI 3.1) versions into the BI 4 platform. It does not change the universe format.

    Also worth noting - you are not required to convert your existing UNV universes. They will work as-is in BI4. In my opinion, your migration project to BI4 will go much more smoothly it does not include UNV to UNX conversion- wait until after a successful go-live of BI4 before looking at UNX conversion.
