Datasources in BW/4HANA

Hi

Will the existing data-sources in BW system will work in BW4HANA landscape ? Will the classical data source residing in the source system work as usual with BW4HANA ? otherwise, what are the changes needed for it ?

    No, you can only use ODP, Hana or file source systems on a BW4HANA.

    You will have to migrate all your existing ECC datasources to ODP dataSources.

      Thanks for your reply.

      In case of ODP, I found the below is the architecture in terms of transferring the data . But could not find much information on ODP modeling that we can do. How can we join the BW datasources within source ? Do you have any link for this that throws some light on the ODP modeling

    See the following Blogs how to migrate from MYSELF to ODP based Extraction

    What do you mean by ODP modeling ? You can keep the same modeling on the BW side and ECC side. You just have to replace your original dataSource by the corresponding ODP dataSource (pretty much all standard dataSources exist in the 2 flavors : classic and ODP).

    Steps to convert the datasource to ODP if AIP is 2.0
    1. 1st apply SAP Note 1931427 (ODP Replication API 2.0 ) for SAP Basis >= 730
    2. 2nd Apply 2232584 - Release of SAP extractors for operational data provisioning (ODP)
    3. Execute Program BS_ANLY_DS_RELEASE_ODP

    Steps to convert the datasource to ODP if AIP is 1.0

    1. 1st apply SAP Note 1521883 (ODP Replication API 1.0 ) for SAP_BASIS < 730
    2. 2nd Apply 2232584 - Release of SAP extractors for operational data provisioning (ODP)
    3. Execute Program BS_ANLY_DS_RELEASE_ODP

    Once datasource are converted to ODP you can use the SAP ODP Source system to replicate the DS.

    Thanks
