How can Performer Suite support an SAP BW to SAP BW/4HANA or SAP BW on HANA migration process?

Usually, the initial step in an SAP BW migration project is the complete mapping and documentation of the existing SAP BI environment. This lengthy and cumbersome effort can be dramatically reduced and simplified by using Docu Performer.

The next phase is identifying unused, orphaned and duplicated SAP BI objects and elements, to select what will be migrated to the new SAP BW/4HANA or SAP BW on HANA environment and what has to be excluded. System Scout provides helpful tools to an overview and an analysis of SAP BI applications.

During the actual SAP BW migration process Migration Booster can support the consolidation process of old legacy systems or master data objects, the clean-up activities and the implementation of new naming conventions.

With Translation Steward the translation of SAP BW object documentation can be performed significantly faster and with considerably less labour during the migration project.

Why is it important to document SAP BI systems?

There are different reasons why in most cases it is necessary to document the SAP objects of projects, data models and applications:

  • complying with various internal and external requirements,
  • ensuring that changes made in the systems are transparent and understandable,
  • informing business users about the state of the SAP ecosystem,
  • protecting valuable know-how and intellectual property,
  • approve changes made in the SAP BI solutions,
  • understanding the data model when transferring it between responsible parties (e.g. from a consultant to the client).

What are the disadvantages of the manual documentation method of SAP BI solutions?

Unfortunately, there are no standard SAP tools currently available for the technical documentation process of SAP BI objects. Therefore, the technical documentation and commenting of various SAP Business Intelligence solutions is a time consuming, tedious, error prone, dull and never-ending manual task. It is a costly and continuous operation, yet it often produces an outdated and incomplete documentation, resulting in a difficult to use and unreliable knowledge base.

Since the manual SAP technical documentations are usually created by more than one person, the items differ in many aspects, have no uniform concept and standards, which makes them hard to comprehend and compare.

Searchability in the manual SAP BI documentation is usually rather ineffective or even impossible due to the inconsistencies and other limitations.

The manual documentation often contains many screenshots, which are not searchable and the information might be hard to read due to the size or quality issues or even completely missing from the image.

Since the manual SAP Business Intelligence documentation has only one version, an item might be too detailed for a business user or lacking the required information for a BI developer.

Central storage of the technical SAP documentation, version management and sharing the documents with the authorized users is also often not possible along the manual documentation process.

Which SAP systems and components does the Docu Performer support in the documentation and commenting process?

The Docu Performer is capable of creating technical documentation for the following SAP systems and components, with the additional commenting capabilities:

 

SAP Business Warehouse products:

  • SAP BW on HANA up to version 7.5

Major challenges during SAP BW to BW/4HANA migration projects

Conversion

There is no option to optimize existing content for SAP BW/4HANA or SAP BW on HANA.

Reusability

It is not possible to reuse established SAP BI data models and queries.

Effort

Rebuilding data models and queries requires a high level of costly manual efforts.

How can Migration Booster support SAP BW to BW/4HANA migration projects?

Conversion

With Migration Booster it is possible to:

  • optimize existing SAP BW content for SAP BW/4HANA or SAP BW on HANA,
  • rename SAP BI entities,
  • change existing SAP BI structures,
  • consolidate entities and systems.

Reusability

The tool enables the convenient reuse of various InfoProvider, InfoObjects and Reporting Elements.

Effort

Migration Booster reduces the resources needed for the SAP BW to BW/4HANA migration projects by allowing the reuse of existing SAP BI data models.

Efficient SAP BW to BW/4HANA migration with Migration Booster

Collect relevant objects easily and conveniently

Identify and collect InfoProviders which should be migrated from SAP BW to SAP BW/4HANA or SAP BW on HANA with Migration Booster’s graphical data model for any greenfield or brownfield SAP migration project. With the automatic collection tool all dependent PartProviders and InfoObjects will be automatically assembled, so they can be also included in the migration if needed.

Quick and consistent conversion and labeling

The selected elements can be converted to SAP BW to SAP BW/4HANA or SAP BW on HANA optimized objects at the touch of a button. With the predefined mapping tables the namespaces of the objects can be changed automatically. This will result in a uniform and consistent structure in the target system. The properties of the objects can be adjusted during the transfer on the fly for easy remodeling.

Fast export including existing queries

With Migration Booster the export of the adjusted objects is easy to the new environment.

Move in at lightning speed: Export includes existing queries

Easily export objects that have been adjusted and renamed in Migration Booster to your new SAP BW/4HANA or SAP BW on HANA system. Copy existing queries to a new InfoProvider and rename any contained report elements simultaneously.

Using Migration Booster’s functions, the duration of the SAP BW/4HANA or SAP BW on HANA migration process can be significantly reduced and the new SAP system can go live sooner. The redesign process of the SAP system is easier, and the proven existing methods and queries can be used as a fallback.

Copy and reuse existing SAP queries in the new SAP BW/4HANA or SAP BW on HANA environment

In an SAP BW migration project queries have to rebuild in the new target SAP system, which requires significant resources.

Using Migration Booster existing queries in the source systems can be reused by moving them to the target system. This is done by copying them to the new InfoProviders, ensuring compliance with previous renaming of InfoObjects.

Translation Steward

What is Translation Steward used for?

Translating documentation is essential when multinational teams are involved in the implementation, migration or maintenance of an SAP BW solution. Without an up-to-date SAP BW documentation, cooperation between colleagues speaking different languages is difficult, slow and error prone. Manual translation of SAP BW documents puts a constant and heavy load on the SAP BI team, while the results are usually delayed, inconsistent, partial and contain mistakes.

Discover Translation Steward, which offers a user-friendly, fast, intelligent and automatic translation for all SAP BW objects in all languages.

SAP Translation Steward logo

The disadvantages of manual SAP BW system translation

Inventory

Existing SAP BW object descriptions in every logon language have to be checked manually.
The locations where descriptions are maintained also have to be identified.

Translation

The manual translation of SAP BW object descriptions creates an immense effort for larger SAP systems.
Manual translation includes inconsistencies and mistakes, which makes their use inefficient and cumbersome.

External support

The outsourcing of SAP BW translations is not possible in SAP.
The translation can be done by the users only, who might neglect their core tasks as a result.

The benefits of using Translation Steward

Inventory

Translation Steward displays all existing and missing SAP BW object descriptions in all available languages.
The tool also shows the location of each description for easy management of the translations.

Translation

With Translation Steward it is possible to mass rename entire SAP BW systems.
