Largely, it’s a two-step process when it comes to upgrading from earlier BOE XI 3.x releases to the latest BI 4.2 release:
- Step1: Installing and configuring brand new BI 4.2 system
- Step2: Moving objects (users and reports etc.) from source to target system
This pattern book has been developed by running the workflow of moving source system (BusinessObjects XI 3.1) objects into the target system (BusinessObjects BI 4.2), using the Upgrade Management Tool (UMT). UMT is part of the BusinessObjects BI suite.
