Migrating UNV Universes to UNX Universes Freemium Offer

SAP’s Gregory Botticchio discusses changes in universe support, and Allan Pym describes the APOS “Freemium” offering to help customers migrate from UNV to UNX universes.

The APOS “Freemium” offer bundles the APOS technology you need to move forward into BI 4.3 and BI 20224. It allows you to leverage our UNX Universe adoption solution for targeted Universes and Web Intelligence reports, helping you speed this semantic layer transition process to leverage all of the SAP BusinessObjects value that lies ahead:

  • Bulk convert existing UNV universes to UNX format
  • Scan your system for targeted Web Intelligence reports and select them
  • Repoint Web Intelligence reports in bulk
  • Optionally replace existing reports, rename the new reports, or move the new reports to a different folder
  • Export universe properties
  • Manage data connections
  • Automate bulk testing to ensure successful and accurate migration process
  • Define which fields map to which between two non-identical universes during repointing
