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 IBP via HCI-DS

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

THE DOCUMENT WAS INITIALLY CREATED IN 2014 AND IS MEANWHILE PRETTY OUTDATED!!!

Especially since BW 7.5 the technology has changed very much, which is not reflected in the document. And no HANA-related information is given.

However, as I still get the request to send the document quite frequently, and as the “history” may still enlighten someone, I have uploaded it here:

https://mdocs.sap.com/mcm/public/v1/open?shr=b2HPYC30uhK_mgvYI7xK9xkHS2f5VcSW-YvTqjZT2Pk

 

You will find a couple of very good posts on both HCI and SDI by Ben:

and by Venkat:

Hope it might help

P.S.: No, I do not intend to write an update 🙂 Others have more knowledge…

    Hey Irmhild,

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

    Regards,

    Vivek

    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

    Hi

    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    But the technical details are outdated in many areas

    Yours
