Hello Friends of SAP HANA Live Rapid Deployment Solution,

Summer is in full swing in Europe (particularly temperatures in Germany are touching 40° C) and to complement this hot season, we are delighted to announce the hot and latest version of SAP HANA Live RDS V8. Here are the highlights of the content shippped with this latest version:

SAP Business Suite on HANA:
  • New and enhanced pre-built calculation views based on SAP HANA Live VDM’s for Hierarchies handling in Controlling with authorizations in-built.
  • New and enhanced pre-built reports for cost center hierarchy, cost element hierarchy, profit center hierarchy built in SAP Design Studio Analysis application.

SAP Simple Finance:

  • New query views (calculation views) based on SAP HANA Live VDM’s and pre-built reports for SAP Simple Finance On-premise edition, 1503.

So, if you have been looking for information on how to deal with Hierarchies with SAP HANA Live and authorizations with it, do refer to the configuration guide H39 Hierarchy with SAP HANA Live which provides comprehensive information on the topic and to add to that you can also download the package and the technical content in the package from this link: to get pre-built reports for some of the common hierarchies prevalent in the Controlling domain.

Following image could help to visualize how hierarchy built in Design Studio Analysis application look like:


Note: All the content delivered on hierarchies is based on SAP Business Suite on HANA and not SAP Simple Finance.

As you might have known that one of the relevant approach for analytics in SAP Simple Finance is based on SAP HANA Live VDM’s, so with SAP HANA Live RDS V8, you will also be able to download new pre-built query views (calculation views) and pre-built reports for SAP Simple Finance in the following areas:


All the above pre-built reports are based on SAP Lumira server for SAP HANA. Download the HANA Live RDS package and refer to configuration guide H65 to get all details on the content for SAP Simple Finance. Following image could help to visualize how one of the Lumira Storyboards look like:


If you are interested to look into this content on SAP Simple Finance and perhaps get your hands dirty, you can start with SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition trial offering.
