SAP BusinessObjects migration planning can benefit from SWOT analysis — the more such investigation and planning that goes on upstream, the fewer surprises you'll encounter downstream in your migration project management. But SWOT analysis is even more critical in migration pre-planning efforts — the stage at which you are gathering internal approvals and executive sponsorships.
The business case for SAP BusinessObjects migration is a strong one, but it needs to be examined in light of the particular environment, circumstances, and business needs within your enterprise. Without the business case, there is no project.
As a platform manager seeking buy-in, you need to translate generic benefits into line-of-business-specific selling points to make the case for migration. One way to nail down those selling points while committing to due diligence is to perform formal SWOT analysis.
