Since SAP BW 7.30 we have the possibility to write into BW with SLT as replication technology. This allows us to achieve real-time reporting and provisioning in many different scenarios. With the latest release of SAP BW 7.40 we enhanced this possibility and introduced a new technology which is based on the Operational Data Provisioning Framework. This allows as a more flexible and offers a scalable way to connect SLT to SAP BW.
So in general we can group the use cases and scenarios with BW and SLT like follows:
- SAP BW 7.30 (mainly based on PSA and HANA tables):
- SAP BW 7.40 (ODP based)
There is also a system demonstration of Astrid Tschense-Oesterle available where you can see (the latest and recommended option) with SLT and ODP
into SAP BW 7.40, in a more detailed manner.
