How to download HANA Live VDM ?


I like to analyze VDM to apply HANA Live in the future, even though I use 'BW on HANA' now.

I wonder how to download HANA Live VDM.

I've looked up many discussoins and documnents like "Administrator's Guide.." but I couldn't find a proper solution.

I downloaded contents like "HANA LIVE RDS V1.10" and "RDS BIP CONTENT V2" through RDS in the SMP.

But, the files only include scenario help files and reportng contents with extension 'lcmbiar'.

Is it possible to get VDM with RDS or another way without changing ERP ?

    Hi Sangjae,

    Did you check the below Administrator Guide?

    Also read it regarding scenarios on when HANA Live can be used

    You will have to download and install software component HCO_HBA_ECC as mentioned here:

    • Hi Sangjae,

      #1 I checked the path and it is valid:

      Go to -> Installation and Upgrade -> Browse Our Download Catalog

      -> SAP In-Memory (SAP HANA) -> SAP HANA Add-ons .

      All required HANA Live packages are available there

      I don't have authorizations so I can't download the content.

      You can check the screenshot shared by Yeu Sheng below

      #2 Well I am not sure about that

      But you can try importing zip files and if import is successful, you can see the views

      But when you will try to run these views it will show error

      So if you just want to only see how Views are created you can try it out

      Otherwise you will have to replicate data to your HANA System
