Hi Ravi,

I would suggest you to do a detailed environment assessment before you start your migration.

This will enable you what to migrate and what should not.

- Please note you need to convert all the DeskI reports to WebI as it is no longer supported in BI4.0

- Need to reconfigure the security matrix by using Custom access levels for easier manageability.

- Need to cleanup obsolete objects that no longer required

- Prepare document on features that are no longer supported and the workaround, finally known issues and the fixes document.
