I realize Open Hub is the SAP solution to interfacing BW data to 3rd Party tools.
However does anyone see a problem in general with the approach of developing custom web services on the BW box that would be called by a third party tool and in turn return Master Data and ODS objects?
I see that for each ODS object there are three tables:
1) Active Table
3) Activation Queue
Can someone explain the purpose of these three tables? I thought when a row was in the Active Table, that it was taken from the Activation Queue. However in the Active Table I see a column called /BIC/ZAWARDST and it contains entries such as "COMPLETE", "PENDING", "ERROR".
