How to evaluate the best performance regarding currencies?

0 Kudos


Building a solution I came up with the following question, which type of conversion is more friendly with the system, having an on the fly conversion for a series of data or creating a data action to create the conversion as a persisted measure.

The question comes from currency triangulation, if I want to be able to go from A to C, i either need to have A to C conversion rate, or A to B and B to C, moving from A to B as a persisted change (via data action) and then from B to C (again as a data action)

Regardless of the answer, I'm specially interested on how to evaluate performance on this type of situation, data action vs additional converison rates etc.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Oscar,

I'm not an SME in this area but you can use a story that is delivered by SAP and available in each SAC tenant called: Data Action Performance Statistics and Analysis. This should help to compare the performance across different scenarios.

Please check the following blog for more information: SAP Analytics Cloud Data Action Performance Statistics and Analysis.

Always better to use Directly A to C conversion rate.
