Question & Answer

Q: So infosource is not part of the future roadmap ?

A: Infosources can still be used in BW/4HANA



Q: I don't see on slide 20

A: Download slides here: https://d3v6gwebjc7bm7.cloudfront.net/event/16/03/04/9/rt/1/documents/resourceList1523300206704/bw4contentsp5withwhatisn…


Q: Can you share the note that says the datasources that are released on S4HANA ?

A: 2500202


Q: Is BW/4 HANA only on Cloud ?

A: It is available on-premise


Q: If source system ECC migrates to S/4 HANA? Table structures will changes in ECC right? so how about BW data sources?

A: See SAP Note 2500202



Q: Is BW/4 HANA only on Cloud ?

A: On premise - please check Marc Bernard's session at 2018 ASUG Annual Conference session: https://sessioncatalog.sapevents.com/go/agendabuilder.sessions/?l=169&sid=58725_478169&locale=en_US


Q: If you go to SOH (ECC on HANA) you would not need the COPA accelerator anymore, correct?

A: Brian says correct



Q: How do the extractors 0FI_ACDOCA_10 and _20 fit in?

A: They directly reflect the ACDOCA table used in S/4HANA. However, currently there is no content for it yet on BW/4 side.



Q: Can you shows us the data flows for GL?

A: These are in the slides here: https://d3v6gwebjc7bm7.cloudfront.net/event/16/03/04/9/rt/1/documents/resourceList1523300206704/bw4contentsp5withwhatisnewslide1523300232882.pdf



Q: So the dilemma is how BW/4HANA can help a S/4HANA client and I don't see compelling options for client. BW/4HANA can only best serve ECC based client today

A: Not sure why come to that conclusion; extractors with ECC can be used with S/4 - and thousand CDS and BW/4HANA can connect those CDS as datasource using ODP- lots of opportunity



Q: Client on BW on HANA in B4H Mode vs BW/4HANA - what will they loose or gain in comparison?

A: If running BW7.5 and added add-on, and now run B4H, it doesn't allow you to use old objects; not getting new enhancements of BW/4HANA - can't use myself connection, classic DSO's, etc.



Q: Brian talked about a web site showing which CDS can be used as a data source. When would that be available ?

A: currently no fixed date for it yet. However basically you can extract through all views by adding the annotation @Analytics.extraction.enabled : true



Q: For example if I can filly leverage 0FI-ACDOCA_10 I can throw all the FI/CO extrcators you shared in this slide

A: this would cover most of the FI reporting, not all, will need to check the details



Q: Does BW/4HANA also come with some CDS views?

A: Yes, the technical content is made up of CDS views



Q: You mentioned about IBP ; is it integrated on BW4HANA

A: Not exactly; with BW/4HANA have BPC11.0 is integrated. IBP is in S4 and not in BW/4HANA



Q: For views in BW/4HANA - should we use Graphical Views or go after CDS views?

A: Graphical calculation views are the modeling entities which can be used by CompositeProviders.




Q: Is there any standard S4 content for Business Objects?

A: Working on content for SAP Analytics Cloud
