You are a project manager or an IT accountable to plan SAP Business Warehouse upgrades? Then you had a hard job to estimate the time and effort for the lasts steps in the upgrade. That’s what your basis consultant probably told you:
‘The initial configuration of a BW system after the installation used to take several days.
In the ABAP part updating customizing tables, preparing the BW system, activating the software component, etc.
Once this was done the connectivity between BW-ABAP and BW-JAVA had to be set up which could be a true nightmare since it included so many manual steps that you could easily spent days with it, especially if was the first time.
In the end you didn’t even know which step was relevant for which component and why it finally worked.’
So you ask yourself:
Will it help to get a magician for that job?
Why couldn’t SAP make this easier and more time efficient?
Well, guess what: SAP did both.
As a matter of fact, SAP provides two Wizards, one for BW ABAP and one for BW JAVA.
