Cleanup/Merging concept

Hi

We have one old BW solution which is live and around 10 reports are running on it from past 10 years.We developed one new BW solution for client and some new reports are going to be developed on this.My client wanted us to analyse if old solution is still needed and if not we can delete whole or some objects from old solution.How to work and what are various things we need to consider on Lifecycle Management task like this?I feel this is more of a Life cycle Management task ,I am not sure how we call this.(New solution contains may be 40% same fields from source as old solution.I am not sure.I didnot analyse.)

Thanks.

    Hi Simon,

    we can take a call depending on business requirement..

    say can we reduce these 10 reports to 5 or lesser so by redesigning the old Infoproviders with new fields or some other changes..

    you can try to reuse if it is performance point of view very stable design.. and nothing much to do..

    so it is up to you now how u want to move forward

    Thanks and regards

    Kiran

    I guess you'll need to see whether those 10 reports are still being used (and how frequently). If they are being used, and you can copy them to the new setup (keeping the same functionality), then do so and afterwards get rid of the old solution.

    If not, keep (part of) the old solution.

    Just wondering...if they only have 10 reports, why did they even bother setting up a new system???
