Major Tasks for a BW to HANA migration - Step -by-Step Approach

Pre Migration Steps BW to HANA (Dev, QA & Prod)
1. Clean the Persistent Staging Area (PSA) for data already loaded to DSOs
2. Delete the Aggregates aggregates (summary tables). They will not be needed again.
3. Compress the E and F tables in all InfoCubes. This will make InfoCubes much smaller.
4. Remove data from the statistical cubes (they start with the technical name of 0CTC_xxx). These contain performance information for the BW system running on the relational database. You can do this using the transaction RSDDSTAT or the program RSDDSTAT_DATA_DELETE to help you.
5. Look at log files, bookmarks and unused BEx queries and templates (transaction RSZDELETE). 6. Remove as much as possible of the DTP temporary storage, DTP error logs, and temporary database objects. Help and programs to do this are found in SAP Notes 1139396 and 1106393.
7. For write-optimized DSOs that push data to reportable DSOs (LSA approach), remove data in the write-optimized DSOs. It is already available in higher level objects.
8. Migrate old data to Near-Line Storage (NLS) on a small server. This will still provide access to the data for the few users who infrequently need to see this old data. You will also be able to query it when BW is on HANA, but it does not need to be in-memory.
10. Remove data in unused DSOs, InfoCubes and files used for staging in the BW system. This includes possible reorganization of masterdata text and attributes using process type in RSPC 11. You may also want to clean up background information stored in the table RSBATCHDATA. This table can get very big if not managed.
12. You should also consider archiving any IDocs and clean the tRFC queues. All of this will reduce size of the HANA system and help you fit the system tables on the master node.
13. Size reduction of Basis Tables. In SAP Note 706478, SAP provides some ideas on how to keep the basis tables from growing too fast too fast in the future.
14. As of Service Pack 23 on BW 7.0, we can also delete unwanted master data directly (see SAP Note: 1370848).
15. Use the program RSDDCVER_DIM_UNUSED to delete any unused dimension entries in your InfoCubes to reduce the overall system size (not a factor if you plan on using the optimized HANA infocubes)

Pre-Validation steps
16. Run BW to HANA Migration Readiness Check (v2.0) in  SAP Note 1729988 and resolve all high priority issues including connectivity checks, service packs, security, basis, db notes and general check in the tool for SB, Dev, QA and Prod.
17. Run ZBW_ABAP_ANALYZER for checks of ETL ABAP code and fix outstanding issues in SB, Dev, QA and Prod. Add HANA hints where required. This is found in  SAP Note 1847431
18. Run full delta load and gather benchmark performance statistics for load and activations
20. Run key queries, reports and dashboards for collection of benchmark statistics and performance, including any BEx broadcaster jobs, pre-calculations and workbooks.

Other: 
a) Conduct HANA development workshops
b) Complete HANA Admin workshop and training
c) Create an SLA and Support plan for SAP HANA internally
d) Confirm Backup, Disaster recovery and HA plan

Environment staging and Migration (post hardware install, validation and handover)
