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
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.
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).
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.
