SAP BO Analysis (for Office and OLAP) -> non-SAP DWH

Former Member

Hi experts

1. question: In respect of this SAP document "SAP BusinessObjects BI Solution Architecture" SAP BO Analysis, Edition for Microsoft Office and for OLAP are not applicable to custom-datawarehouses (non-SAP). The dark (black) arrow through direct access (BICS) finally ends at transient providers and not into the DWH (pg. 12).

Can anyone confirm this, or better contradict this interpretation?

2. question: Does SAP BO Analysis accept input fields for comments? BEx Analyzer is not able to do so. Would be interesting to know if BO solved this problem with Analysis.

Any thoughts?

Thanks C208 B.

Question 1:

In the current GA version Analysis Office (version 1.2) can only connect to SAP BW or the SAP Transient providers.

Transient providers are against SAP ECC Classic InfoSets as of Enhancement Package 5.

For questions on Analysis OLAP please see this blog

Question 2:

Yes, it does accept comments in fields based on webcasts I have attended.
