Decision Tree : In-Place Migration VS Greenfield Migration


In-Place Migration
• Full system conversion of an
In-Place
existing SAP BW installation
Decision Factors Migration GreenField Comments
(keep same SID)
Speed to business benefits
For In-Place migration, immediate performance benefits in
query processing and data loads for the entire BW content
• Step-by-step in-place transfer
Full Benefits of classic objects into their
Opportunity to build a clean &
optimized system
If existing BW system was built years back then Greenfield
offers an opportunity to start fresh and build a clean system HANA-optimized counterparts
• Phased migration depending
Reporting capabilities Neutral upon where you start
Greenfield option will have two parallel systems for risk • Immediate benefits in
Risk mitigation
performance to the end users
Neutral - Both options would provide the same benefits
Agility from an agility perspective

End user experience


Need a common BI Platform across the two BW systems to
keep the user experience the same
Greenfield Migration
• New SID : Two parallel
With Greenfield, increasing support cost for maintaining
Ongoing support cost two parallel systems systems during migration
• Mix of redevelopment and
Less Benefit SAP HANA Licenses Costs Neutral - Both options could incur the similar license costs
conversion of existing content
Maybe able to start small with Greenfield if. Not sure how
Hardware Costs much benefit • Transport data models and
remote data transfer
Oracle DB License Costs Ability to release Oracle DB licenses with in-place migration
(including Unicode
Greenfield option would require lot more effort as it will
involve redesign of subject areas. Higher benefits but higher conversion)
Overall Cost & Effort cost
• Opportunity to redesign but
will need effort and business
involvement
