Dear Gurus,

Client is planning for an upgrade to BI7. We are in the process of evaluating the time lines and effort required. If anybody worked on the BI7 upgrade from BW 3.5, please share your experience on coming up with an effort estimation and time estimation. Please also share your experience on what all need to be considered before doing the upgrade and after the upgrade.

Regards

Vijay

hi chandra

Time estimation and resource estimation for a BW upgrade completely depends on your system... we had around 35 chains 75 cubes and 40 DSO's and it took us 3 months for upgrade of all the three boxes....

Regarding things to be taken care off prior to upgrade.....

1. you need to decide on upgrade strategy.

2. you need to take care of operating system upgrade.

3. you need to take care of your data base.

4. you need to check on add-on requirements such as SEM, enterprise portal plug-in etc.

5. you need to know upgrade release specific information.

6. you need to review BW feature lists.

7. you need to align your system so as not to face any problems durng upgrade.

i hope it helps
