Model SAP BW DSO in PowerDesigner


just a quick question: what's the best approach to model a SAP BW DSO in PowerDesigner?

Just wondering, which diagram would fit best, which database type (in case I decide to go with PDM) to pick ...

Any thoughts. I don't see a "native" integratioin of SAP BW DSOs in PD.

This is only for documentation code generation required

    Hi rafal,

    to use PDM "databaseindependend" or with an unknown targetDB you can use ANSI2.

    CreateModel(PdPDM.cls_Model, ModelFileName & "|DBMS=ANSI Level 2")

    Hi Rafal,

    If it is for ETL, try the Data Movement Model.

    If it is for datastructures use CDM,LDM,PDM.

    • Hi Hans,

      it is for both. What I'm trying to do at the moment is:

      1. Model the DSO in PD

      2. Map/Link this DSO model to the Finance & Risk Analytics model (LDM) extracted from BA using the FAR extraction routine

      After this is done, we have to model the data flow (here I will use DMM).
