SAP BOBJ Upgrade

SAP BOBJ is a robust reporting tool with many useful functionalities for businesses today. One of our clients wanted to upgrade to the latest version of SAP BOBJ 4.2 SPS07. In this case study we discuss:

  • How we gathered client requirements and understood the reason behind this upgrade and the success criteria
  • Analyzing the system requirements needed for the successful implementation of this upgrade
  • Migration of data to new server and establishment of connection  
  • Performing tasks like adding user and security roles, establishing connections, enabling backup and checking logs
  • Testing scenarios covered and issues faced while working on this project 

Solution

We performed the below tasks to migrate from SAP BOBJ 4.0 SPS07 to BOBJ 4.2 SPS07:

 

  • Detailed understanding of the working environment used currently 
  • Analysis of the specifications of the current system used by the client 
  • Studying the system requirements needed for SAP BOBJ 4.2 SPS07
  • Migration of data from Production server to new server
  • Testing under different scenarios to ensure proper functionality after the upgrade

Challenges

We encountered some issues as below: 

  • We faced some issues pertaining to system changes not working as per new standards
  • Creating a back-up strategy without having proper  backup tools(like VMware) in place
  • Ensuring this end-to-end migration did not lead to data loss
  • Additional Security related enhancements to be added for ensuring reports are not modified by unauthorised users.
