A pattern book is a step by step ‘how to' of an actual deployment or upgrade of SAP BusinessObjects BI software documented as precisely as possible, based on a particular pattern or use case (for example: Deploying BusinessObjects on Windows Operating System).

The main goal of the BI Pattern Book project is to produce books that can be used as an instruction manual that provides step by step instructions on how to successfully deploy or test or upgrade SAP BusinessObjects BI software using a live example and how it was technically achieved.

Previous phases of BI Pattern Books:

The main scope of this pattern book is to capture the details, instructions, and steps involved in updating your SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 or SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.1 landscape to SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.2 release.


The main workflow for updating from SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 and 4.1 release to SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.2 involves the same set of steps. Therefore this book covers both the scenarios, which can be used for either versions (BI 4.0 or 4.1).
