Hi all

I tried to make a summary on the necessary steps to connect an infocube, DSO, Infobject, Open Hub or a data source into HCI


We are not yet fully done, but please find my findings attached and post your

This is no official document, but a guidance to lost consultants…


Hope it might help



P.S.: UPDATE Feb 18th 2016 – slight adjustment of the attachment

Be aware that the document is pretty old and I made only very few adjustments

However, it still provides an overview about the possibilities for dummy consultants like me…



UPDATE June 2017: The attachment was removed, potentially during the merge to the new blog section, and I cannot find a way to upload it again. So if anyone needs it (even though it is meanwhile totally old…), drop me your Email and I can forward it to you

    Hey Irmhild,

    As you wrote that this is not the complete version. Do you have any updated version of this for 4.0.

    Hey all

    I currently have not yet a revised version.

    There is pretty much new.

    Meanwhile we have web services to ready directly from APO planning area. And a report to enable data source automatically to be visible in HCI: /SAPAPO/PAREA_EXTR_EXPOSE. This report is not available in BW, as far as I know, you so likely still have to use the manual code I gave the example in my document.

    Maybe I will find some time some day to update the document. So please feel free to share your experience in this blog and I can update it or others can simply take it from your comments.

    Thanks for your interest

    it helps to read the notes, so I highlighted them 🙂

    You need to first download, than change the ending from .txt to .pdf, and only than you can open

    Reason is that I could not upload a pdf file

    However, be aware that it is pretty old. The principles are still valid, so it gives a good overview for dummy concultants like me

    But the technical details are outdated in many areas
