How much time do we need to expect for a migration from BW on RDBMS to BW on HANA environment?

Please contact your SAP Client Partner for more information on SAP's Rapid Deployment Solution (RDS) for a BW on HANA migration. Our existing BWoH customers experienced an average of 3 months of total implementation time.

During Tech Ed 2012 in Las Vegas SAP had a  live migration competition between two SAP partners, Bluefin and Optimal, to migrate the ConAgra Foods BPC+BW system to HANA within 48 hours on the show floor.  Optimal won the competition showcasing end to end solution delivery on BW/BPC/mobile, while Bluefin won HANA technology award for the fastest migration: Under 3 hours!
