We are planning to merge Europe and US SAP systems and upgrade the system to BI 7.3. Currently we are on BI 7.0. Though the system is upgraded technically from 3.5 to 7.0 earlier, very few data models are functionally upgraded.
R3 merger and upgrade (4.6C to 6.0) is in progress. Conflict analysis is done and build is in progress for R3 system.
Coming to BW systems, So far we have decided to do a dry copy of Europe system onto a new server and then move all the objects from US BW system to the new system by manual transport on case to case basis resolving the conflicts.
No detailed methodological approach is worked upon and we seek help in this area.
1. Can you suggest the methodology ( document or white paper) which gives the best practices, do's and dont's, testing strategies on the merger.
2. Technical upgrade 7.3 follows the merger. Can anyone suggest the white papers or any documentation on the same (steps to follow on BW front specifically, not on Basis and DB Admin front).
Thanks and Regards
