My Top Features in September🔝

September 2023 covered two new releases for SAP Datasphere with 2023.19 and 2023.20.
Here are my top 3️⃣:

➡️ Transformation Flows

You can now create transformation flows to load data from one or more source tables, apply transformations (e.g. a join or a union), and output the result in a target table. You can load a full set of data from one or more source tables to a target table. You can also load delta changes (including deleted records) from one source table to a target table. More information.

➡️ Delta Tables

When creating a local table, you can enable the new setting Delta Capture to track later changes in your local table. Local tables can be reused as source or target objects in many SAP Datasphere objects. More information.

➡️ Package Modeling Objects

Users with the DW Space Administrator role can create packages to model groups of related objects for transport between tenants. Modelers can add tables, views, ER models, and analytic models to packages. Once a package is complete and validated, the space administrator can export it to the Content Network. The structure of your package is preserved and, as the objects it contains evolve, you can easily export updated versions of it. More information.

In October you will see an update to the SAP Datasphere home screen coming with release 2023.21
