What we did
Sii was tasked with conducting due-diligence. Sii Consultants worked on the dedicated PCs provided by the Client with BO version 5.1.5. in which the reports were created.
The information was gathered through detailed technical meetings about BO, detailed meetings for process of creating reports, Universes overview, database’s structures overview and the analysis of provided documentation, existing reports, report’s specifications and current source code base (SQL’s queries).
The IT Department has a defined vision and intent. From the starting list of 64 reports, after 4 days of the investigation 46 reports remained on the list. The reports were grouped in 4 categories, depending on priority, so they could start from the most important ones.
The final product of this project will consist of 46 corrected, upgraded or created from the beginning reports in BO and/or processed using Freehand SQL method or Universe. Sii also delivered technical documentation for the reports containing BO functionalities description, composition of the query along with the associated SQL, and databases used.
