Upgradation of SAP BI 7.0 to SAP BI 7.3

Hi Friends,

Our company is planning to upgrade the existing SAP BI 7.0 into SAP BI 7.3.Once after installation is completed,as a SAP BI consultant i want to do certain testings to check whether the upgradation is functioning without any errors.

Kindly suggest me what are the basic testings i have to do once the installation is completed.

    Hi Bhaskar,

    You can check the following things,

    1) Check the RFC connection with all the source systems.

    2) Data loading from source system is intact or not by running process chains in the system.

    3) Whether all the delta extractor's are running fine or not.

    4) Create some test modeling objects and check whether you are able to do the modeling operations or not.

    5) Execute some of the important reports e.g. Bex Queries or workbooks and see if they are executing properly and giving you accurate results.

    There are many other things which you can test.
