  7. 7. Hyperion versions prior to 9.3.1 must be migrated TWICE! Upgrades for version prior to 11 would firsthave to upgrade to a supported version AND THEN upgrade to the current version.Based on architecture and functionality changes, Hyperion implementation partners stronglyrecommend a redesign of applicationsYou cannot transfer business rules and logic from Essbase to HFM, sometimes not even to PlanningReports / templates developed in older versions of the Essbase Add-In must be re-written forSmartView“The decision to upgrade Hyperion is more akin to buying a house than buying a pair of shoes.”“The complexity of the process is such that the recommendation is to NOT upgrade simply becausethere is a new version.”“Don’t forget to consider the ancillary supporting products as well. Not just HFM and Planning, but alsoEssbase, FDM, HAL, and so on, and so on. There are enough moving pieces that we can’t use a singlerule of thumb and generically recommend whether to upgrade.”
