BW Impact: CRM 5.0 to CRM 7.0 Upgrade

Experts,

We are implementing CRM 7.0 with reference to CRM 5.0. CRM 7.0 is a new implementation not technical upgrade from CRM 5.0 but CRM 5 is takes as basis for this impl. In this new impl, most of the enhanced fields in transactions are migrated to standard fields. Web UI utilization enabled.

I would like to understand how this will impact BW data flow. As per my BW understanding, we have to use the same datasources used in CRM 5.0, enhance them as in old system and extract data to existing infocubes so that customer can use their existing reports. In case of z-fields that were replaced with standard, we have to use standard fields and change mapping in transformations.

As per some threads, understood that CRM 7.0 is diffrent in functionality in CRM 5.0. It is difficult to configure data flow same as CRM 5.0. There is considerable change in source tables and datasources. Based on this assumption, our BW expert suggested to implement new dataflow for CRM 7.0 i.e new infocube's and new reports.

Please share your experience if you upgrade BW dataflow from CRM 5.0 to CRM 7.0. Suggest the best approach to follow. Is there any documentation on this any where on sap portals.

Best Regards,

Raj.

    Hi,

    Upto my knowledge,there will be NO impact on the current data loads.

    After upgrading CRM 5.0 -CRM7.0

    Data source of CRM system may get new fields and functionalities get added ,

    These changes and updates will be updated in BI system only when the data sources are replicated.

    If the data source is new version,it needs to be activated in RSA5 and to repicate, then only the changes will reflectes in BI.

    Hi,

    in BW/BI does not impact on the current data loads

    Data source of CRM system may get new fields and functionalities get added ,

    These changes and updates will be updated in BI system only when the data sources are replicated.

    after replication the changes will happen in BW/BI after then ETL procedure starts
