Upgrade from BOXI3 TO BI4.2

We are currently using BOXI 3.1 SP2 and we are planning to upgrade to BI 4.2.

We have a major Universe which is using Data Federator as datasource. And the Data Federator is connecting to some BW DSOs.

We are wondering whether Data Federator is available in BI 4.2? If not, is there any replacement functionality in 4.2 to meet our business requirement?

Thanks in advance.

    check SAP response.

    Universe based on a Data Federator source

    The conversion is not supported.The workaround is to create the BI4.0 multi-source universe with IDT
    tool against the same data sources. In that way you will leverage Data Federator embedded into BI4.0 platform.

    Hi,

    Actually (multi-source universes aside..) in BI4.x i think it is still possible to have a universe against Data Federator XI3.x source.

    regards. H

    • it's possible but need to maintain BO 3.1 Data Federator along with BI 4.X environment.For a long run it's difficult to maintain but yes for short term it is fine.

      other reason for rebuild is all new features are coming with UNX universe.sometime you need to rebuild your universe.
