I have been allocated a project on BI using SAP as the source system and need to provide the project plan for the same. How should I go about determining the timeline for the project for SAP? I am aware that 80% of the time is consumed by the ETL process but is there a standard methodology to determine the BI project timeline.

Tuesday, July 03, 2012 2:42 PMWe scope projects like this at my company Pragmatic Works. It is hard to scope without a lot of details like: The sources, how many source tables, how many fact tables, how many dimension tables, the amount of data to be moved, cube skills, number of reports to create. I would look into getting help or at least advice from a consulting company like ours.
