    Hi Neelkamal

    The virtual infoproviders(InfoCubes that do not contain data. They only store data virtually, not physically)

    Since it extracts the data from source system directly its known as data source with direct access

    Comming to the difference between:

    SAP RemoteCube - allows the definition of queries with direct access to transaction data in other SAP systems

    General RemoteCube-InfoCube whose transaction data is not managed in the Business Information Warehouse but externally. The data is read for reporting using a BAPI from another system(not from SAP System)

    Check this documentation

    Hi Neelkamal,

    Let me give the abstract way.

    When we say SAP Remote Cube --data is not managed in SAP BW database as its given Remote and more over data resides in another <b>SAP</b> System ( say R/3 , APO , SEM etc ) . It is read at the time of Querying.

    Remote Cube : Entire meaning is same ,but the source system is not SAP and data is read with BAPI , as its not a SAP system .

    Thanks,

    Krish.
