  • OverviewMany organizations are converting their existing Oracle Discoverer deployments and reports to OBIEE & Oracle BI Applications. KPI has a proven methodology for Discoverer to Oracle BI migration based on experience with the largest and most complex migration projects in the world.ProcessThe migration process from Discoverer to Oracle Business Intelligence has 4 distinct phases:1. Audit Phase 2. Analyze Phase3. Development Phase4. User Acceptance PhaseAuditThe Audit Phase is one of the most important in any report conversion process. The Audit Phase determines the initial scope of the project. The final deliverable of the Audit Phase is a comprehensive listof all reports identified for conversion.AnalyzeAfter the list of reports identified for conversion is prepared in the Audit Phase, the team determines the best way to migrate each existing report within the functional capabilities of each application. The goal here is to design an application that will answer real business questions and generate insight… not just another bunch of reports. A high-level design for conversion is then constructed. DevelopmentThe Development Phase is the phase during which the organization wants to minimize costs and maximize the benefits of the conversion process. Reports are converted using a proven proprietary strategy. All reports are unit tested. Staging and production environments are prepared.User AcceptanceThe User Acceptance Phase focuses on the end user. Users are trained to understand the features of Oracle BI and how these features map to features within Oracle Discoverer. All critical issues are resolved and the Oracle BI application is deployed into the production environment.
