Purpose

The purpose of this page is to clarify the understanding of the system logic and requirements in relation to Operational Data Provisioning and SAP Business Warehouse / SAP BW/4HANA

Overview

This should be an executive summary of the content and argument being made in the document. Basically a summary (not repeat) of the information you are explaining.

ODP-BW Source System

SAP BW and SAP BW/4HANA InfoProvider data is extracted using the ODP-BW Source System in the connected SAP BW or SAP BW/4HANA target system. See also Exchanging Data Between BW Systems Using the ODP Source System. In case of limitations with ODP-BW the former BW Source System may be used instead of ODP-BW (indicated if applicable).

ODP-SAP Source System 

In case transferring data out of other tables of a SAP BW or SAP BW/4HANA System (e.g. Technical Content or Generic (custom) DataSources) ODP-SAP Source System needs to be used in the connected target system to load those DataSource.

ODP-CDS Source System  

In SAP BW 7.50, ABAP CDS Views can be used for data transfer out of other tables of your system and then the ODP-CDS Source System in the connected target system instead. In SAP BW/4HANA based source systems, ABAP CDS Views are the only option for new custom (generic) extractions out of SAP BW/4HANA.

Note: It is not recommended to start the CDS for Analytics before you have upgraded to Netweaver (NW) Release 750 Support Package(SP) 4.

Connection between ABAP based SAP Source System to SAP BW or SAP BW/4HANA
