With the Advent of BW 7.4 Powered by HANA, we are observing sea changes in the world of SAP BW, now transforming into EDW.

One of the prominent changes is the introduction of a new Infoprovider known as Advanced DSO.

I believe the name Advanced is well justified because of the fact that it advances to replace Cube and DSO (now known as classic DSO)  and is positioned to

become the preferred Infoprovider for persistency in SAP BW.

I got a chance to lay my hands on this new kid on the block and wanted to share my experience with it.


I will be presenting it with numbered points and screenshots. Rest is self-explanatory.


This paper will give you a fair introduction of aDSOs (Advanced DSOs). The document contains sequenced content with screenshots.
Therefore, attaching XML version.



The next part, Advanced DSO – Behind the Scenes – SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse – SCN Wiki,
will furnish an in-depth e
xploration outcome for aDSOs and will give you a detailed explanation behind

different LSA++ layers and how it morphs into different types of Infoproviders.
