BI4.1 Business Layer Enhancements – Create Custom Date Foundation View
A custom data foundation view is a subset of the data foundation Master view. You can use views when editing a large data foundation, and interested in working with a subset of tables. You can define multiple custom views for the data foundation due to the complexity of the data warehouse.
Essentially, need created views for each individual star scheme (like Sales, Production, Finance, Accounting, etc.) plus a view for each
complex dimension structure (like Business Partner, Material, Customer, Plant etc.),
As a result of this set up, the Master view itself has become quite complex, but the design complexity is reduced significantly through the use of the additional views. The main use of the Master view is to manage the join relationships between the star schemes that were designed individually in their respective view. All other modeling should be performed on the individual views.
