A temporary SAP source system (QAS2) which will be transported to the standard system landscape (DEV1 --> QAS1 --> PROD1) as it will take some time for the transport as well as data migration from QAS2 to the standard systems. In order to start the testing phase earlier, I thought I could first connect QAS2. But I was informed it would take months to connect QAS2 to BI because all the DataSources need to be replicated, Business Content needs to be activated, all other BW objects e.g. Transformations,DTP, InfoPackage, etc. have to be created.
Since I am quite new to BI, I am quite surprised and therefore would like to know what are the procedures and the effort for such a connection.
Thanks in advance!
