Best Approach: Merging Data From BW Infoprovider and HANA view


In our report we need to merge data from two sources, viz. SAP BW infoprovider & HANA view( View is created on HANA database of ECC server, This ECC on HANA system is used as unified OLAP/OLTP system). Please note that, BW & ECC are on different HANA instances. For reporting we are using BO tools.

We have thought of two ways to achieve this data merge:

1. Exposing HANA view in BW system via VirtualProvider based on DTP & then having a MultiProvider on both the Infoproviders (BW Infoprovider & VirtualProvider of HANA view). We will create a BEx query on top of it and use it in BO reports.

2. By Creating a MultiSource universe with the two different data sources BW infoprovider & HANA view accordingly. Then creating report using this universe as a source.

Please suggest the best approach with reasons.

    Were you able to figure out which is the optimal solution for your scenario?  We have similar requirements currently and we are on HEC.

    Option 2 would be my preference.
