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THE DOCUMENT WAS INITIALLY CREATED IN 2014 AND IS MEANWHILE PRETTY OUTDATED!!!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