Moving from XI R2 SP2 to XI 3.0 - clean install or upgrade?


My company is currently using Business Objects Enterprise XI R2 SP2 and they want to move to XI R3.0. Is there any benefit to completely wiping the previous version and doing a clean install compared to trying to use the upgrade process?

I'm still fairly new to this product so I don't know whether we do anything considered out of the norm. I presume we can back up our files/settings from R2, and them re-import them into R3.

If anyone has any advice as to what is the better approach I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
