UNX Adoption Project Cost Estimator


Converting UNV universes to UNX and repointing Web Intelligence is a large IT project for organizations with tens and hundreds of thousands of reports.

Many organizations facing this transition need to weigh their options to make best use of their resources. In our work with customers in the manual adoption of UNX universes, the calculator below reflects the typical time investment needed for each task required in the manual conversion process:

  • Manual conversion of universes from UNV to UNX format - 5 minutes per universe
  • Publish new UNX universe - 2 minutes per universe
  • Manual repointing of Web Intelligence report to new UNX format universe - 15 minutes per report
  • Verify and validate the repointed We Intelligence report results - 10 minutes per report
  • Publish the repointed Web Intelligence report - 2 minutes per report

Why do you need to automate?


Whether you are upgrading your on-premise BI in preparation for SAP BI 2025, moving to SAP BusinessObjects Private Cloud Edition, or migrating to SAP Analytics Cloud, migrations can be challenging, putting strains on resources, so streamlining and automating processes is needed.

These calculations are for manually converting an average deployment, and do not include the additional cost of time and resources incurred by delays caused by manual errors, the training of additional staff and opportunity cost to existing staff of added project work, and the impact of limited availability of additional project resources.
