Shipment of BI Content for SAP NetWeaver BW powered by SAP HANA: DataStore Objects are now prepared for SAP HANA-optimization

Two major improvements related to Enterprise Data Warehousing that can be achieved by migrating SAP NetWeaver BW to the SAP HANA database platform are (1) the dramatic improvement in data load times for Data Store Objects being the data containers within BW, and (2) the significantly boosted performance while reporting from them. With the latest BI Content releases SAP NetWeaver 7.30 BI Content 7.37 SP 01 or SAP NetWeaver 7.31 BI Content 7.47 SP 01, a large fraction (about 2/3) of DataStore Objects that were delivered so far with BI Content have now been prepared for HANA-optimization.

When you copy these HANA-prepared DataStore Objects (DSO) from the delivered to the active version they will be created automatically as SAP HANA-optimized DataStore Object side-stepping the manual conversion step from standard to HANA-optimized DSO. The delivery of DataStore Objects prepared for HANA-optimization marks the next consequent step towards total cost of administration reduction after the migration of all relevant data flows to SAP BW 7.x technology. This is one important prerequisite for HANA-optimization of involved DataStore Objects (migrated data flows were delivered with SAP NetWeaver 7.30 BI Content 7.36 SP 02 or SAP NetWeaver 7.31 BI Content 7.46 SP 02). If DataStore Objects contain data, you cannot avoid the manual conversion step to HANA-optimization. Therefore, you best benefit from the HANA-prepared DataStore Objects when you copy new data flows from the delivered to the active version in your BW system powered by SAP HANA.

You can benefit from automatic creation of HANA-optimized DataStore Objects during BI Content activation if you are using (1) SAP HANA database as of release SAP HANA 1.0 Support Package 03 and (2) SAP NetWeaver BW 7.3, Support Package Stack 07 or SAP NetWeaver BW 7.3, including Enhancement Package 1, Support Package Stack 04.
