"BW BEx -> IDT -> BO" or "BW export to HANA view -> IDT -> BO"


Hello Gurus,

The customer I work for is planning on moving to a BW on HANA environment. One of the questions that came up was around usability of BO in the post-hana world. Unfortunately I could not get hold of any customer experience to get to a logical conclusion.

Option 1 ) We continue to use the standard approach. Consume data from BW BEx queries via BICS connection into Business OBjects

Option 2 ) The second option comes with the feature that BW on HANA provider. You could export an Infoprovider into a view inside HANA(it has a setting to be enable during activation). This would mean we the same data could be consumed from a column-view via a normal RDBMS connection.

In terms of better performance and a stable architectural approach, what could be a better suggestion and why ...
