          Yes it is possible, you need to rpd,catalog and Informatica need to version upgrade..

          For rpd and webcat you can go with ua.bat
          For informatica if you install on existing box, the installation ask you to upgrade say Yes thats it..

          Let me know for issues, I'm there to help

          mean time will search docs for these 2

          If helps pls mark

            Thanks man.
            We did alot of customization in Dashbaords, Repository & ETL workflows. weather they will be effected?
            and how about if i install new OBIA application & OBIEE11g then i migrate old BI repository & Catalog? is it possible ?
            regards

              You can go with any of the approach..
              Its all up to you.. based on your module check the differences between these 2 bi apps versions.. if there is functionality wise changes then go with Apps 7.9.6.3 and then add your customization.. if everything is same then just go with version upgrade for both rpd,webcat and Informatica rep..

              hope this helps

                Hi Thanks alot.
                I am going for new obiee 11g installation.
                What should i consider if i go for new OBIEE11g Installation and then importing ?
                Can i import Customized Object from Old infomatica to new version of Infomatica without applying any patch or some and can i also import Objects into BI Repository ?
                after this will answer correct.
                thanks

                  Go with 11g installation. You can go with current rpd, webcat with upgrade using ua.bat, then decide what you want to do.
                  can go with existing or else merge with BI Apps 7963 version rpd/webcat using available options..

                  For Informatica you have to go with repository upgrade, you need to install latest version on existing Informatica installation that will take care of upgrade..
                  To export and import you may get version error.. upgrade is the choice

                  Hope this helps :)

                  For any other options send me a email
