Migration from IBP 5.0 to 6.1 – impacts on HCI-DS


Hi all,

We are soon going to migrate from IBP 5.0 to 6.1 and we are trying to anticipate the efforts that this will require.

I wonder what are the impacts on HCI-DS :

  • Is it still the same HCI system (same URL)?

  • IBP 6.1 will have the same datastore type as IBP 5.0? The new system 6.1 will only be a new instance in the dropdown list? If it is the case, the new IBP system will only be a new “configuration” of your IBP datastore.

  • When we will re-create the Production planning area in IBP 6.1 :
    • Master Data Tables names won’t change ; consequently the dataflows won’t change
    • Key figure tables names (source and target) will change, because we cannot control the names IBP gives ; consequently we will have to “replicate to new target” all key figure jobs.

Is it correct?

  • Other changes which could be expected? (new mandatory global variables / new table structures / etc …)

Thanks a lot,
