“Warp Speed Ahead: Migrating from Planning 9.3 to PBCS”
Session ID 10304
Mon. April 11 | 3:15 PM – 4:15 PM | Room Surf A
See how a client migrated from on-premise version 9.3 to Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service for an application with 3 plan types. The project started with a clean-up effort so objects such as forms and reports were rationalized and only the appropriate objects were migrated and tested on PBCS. We then migrated from 9.3 to 126.96.36.199 on a lab environment and then to PBCS using LCM. The ODI interfaces were updated and Business Rules were migrated to Calc Manager. Hear tips and tricks and how the build, training and roll-out for this project was completed in 8 weeks.
