Video Series on How to Create a Data Flow in SAP BW/4HANA

Data modeling has a central entry point in BW/4HANA: the data flow in the BW Modeling Tools. The data flow is used to model all the objects and their relationships with each other.

As an author in user assistance, I usually describe editors and functions in task topics. However, with the graphical editor for data flows, it seemed quite hard to describe what needs to be done to create a data flow. I felt that it is so much easier to show what you have to do. So we decided to create a series of videos – we being me and colleagues from Product Management.

To give you an idea of how to create a data flow, we have created a video for a complete scenario. To make it easier for you to work with data flows, we show you some tips and tricks and best practices for working with data flows in a series of videos, e.g. the easiest way to create objects, how to create data flows as templates, and how to work with large data flows.

      Thanks Tanja for your useful tutorials.

      I have 2 suggestionS for your videos:

      1. higher quality preferably HD because now it’s really difficult to read small fonts in your screen.

      2. Subtitles

       

      Keep up the good work. I am looking forward for more videos for BW/4HANA!
