Version Manager for SAP-BI introduces the new way to manage Information Design Tool (.unx) Universes.

With the new VM4SAP-BI IDT product license users are able to:
  • Manage different universe components independently by checking them In/Out
  • Compare component (Business layers, Data foundations, Connections) file versions between one another to see what has changed
  • Share and Publish to different Content Management Systems (CMS) Servers
  • Perform an impact analysis across the objects and tables
  • Work in a multi user environment where, for example, one person can work on the Business Layer while another modifies the Data Foundations of the universe. Once completed, the user can consolidate their work, and deploy a common .unx universe
  • Assured roll-back to existing running environment so the user will never lose their work-in-progress again
  • Ensuring a better migration from XI3.1 or XIR2 to a new SAP-BI 4.x Environment
  • Version Manager is now compatible with SAP-BI4.2
Product Features:
  • Collaborative work on same universe – lock resources when checked out
  • Manage universe’s components independently (business layers, data foundations, connections)
  • Compare your changes between 2 versions and print a change report
  • Impact Analysis search all documents using a universe object or a table field
  • Create IDT universe documentation using our print / export tool
  • Set data foundation and connection of .unx before publish to a CMS
Better migration

Make a copy a XI3.1 or XIR2 to a new SAP-BI 4.x Environment and you will be ready to work with your new CMS and keep history of your old deployments.
