Lifecycle management console for SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform 4.0 is a
web-based tool that enables you to move BI resources from one system to another system, without
affecting the dependencies of these resources. It also enables you to manage different versions of BI
resources, manage dependencies of BI resources, and roll back a promoted resource to restore the
destination system to its previous state.

The lifecycle management console tool is a plug-in for the SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence
platform application. You can promote a BI resource from one system to another system only if the
same version of the SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform application is installed on
both the source and destination systems.

SAP Dashboard Design require separate installation file.
