What is the best way to remodel dimensions of an productive InfoCube?
What I know:
- copy InfoCube A to InfoCube B
- generate an exportDataSource on A
- load data in B from A
- delete data in A
- generate an exportDataSource on B
- load data in A from B
Is this the best way? Any other Ideas? If I have a very large InfoCube, is it the best way to have an InfoCube as B? Wouldn't be an ODS-Object better because It maybe is faster to write in and read from a flat table?
Is it a problem if the InfoCube is compressed?
Anything else I should know?
In my opinion you have the best way of doing and proceed with this model. info cube is better than ODS because you are copying data from Cube to cube so that structure will be the same.
I didn't get your compression question correctly but there won't be any issues if you copy data from existing compression cube to other cube.
Hope this helps
