Version 10.0 of SAP BusinessObjects Access Control comes with a revised platform and runs on an SAP NetWeaver application server ABAP. If you want to upgrade your current implementation of SAP BusinessObjects Access Control you’ll need to migrate your data using export and import tools provided with the software. Learn how to plan a migration and examine the supporting tools.
Key Concept
The migration of version 5.3 of SAP BusinessObjects Access Control, including its firefighter data, consists of three phases: preparation, transition, and cutover. As with any other SAP upgrade or migration, it is highly recommended that you test the procedure first in your development environment before you apply it to your productive instances.

SAP has recoded version 10.0 of SAP BusinessObjects Access Control on the ABAP stack. For this reason it isn’t possible to simply upgrade your current deployments of the solution; it is necessary to install new instances of version 10.0 and migrate your data to them. SAP supports migration from the two previous releases — Access Control 5.3 and Compliance Calibrator/firefighter 4.0 (Figure 1).
