Hi,

I need to understand if there are any best practices or guiding principles to identify cubes and DSOs that need to be migrated to HANA-Optimised objects. Thanks.

Hi Saurabnh,

Well you can convert all your InfoCubes to HANA Optimized Cubes as you get better loading and reporting performance and it makes Infocube design and maintenance simpler.

Check here for conversion of Infocube:

Generally you should migrate thoses DSOs to HANA Optimized DSOs that takes lot of time in DSO activation.

Check here for conversion of DSO:

To know more, check this blog: When should InfoCubes or DSOs be converted to the HANA-optimized versions?

Additionally, you should also read BW ON HANA Cookbook:

Hi Vivek,

Thanks for your response. There seems to be some issue with this portal as I do not see the option to reward the answers.

I have another query - could you please advise me about how non-HANA Optmised cubes and DSOs would perform on a HANA DB. Would appreciate if you can guide me to some documentation around this. Thanks.

Hi Saurabh,

You can check the below docs to know more about InMemory Infocube and InMemory DSOs:

http://www.saphana.com/docs/DOC-1363

http://www.saphana.com/docs/DOC-2129

Additionally you can also check my blog for lots of links related to BW on HANA:

http://scn.sap.com/community/hana-in-memory/blog/2013/08/17/hana-reference-for-developers--links-and...

Non optimized DSOs and Infocubes will perform same and maybe will have faster loading times.

It is advisable to convert Infocubes to InMemory Cubes

Thanks Vivek. I believe I did not mark this discussion as a question and that is probably why I cannot reward points. Thanks a lot again.
