Explorer BI4.1 SP6 Patch 1 and BICS (SAP BW Cube)

Hi ALL,

While going through the Explorer user guide @ help.sap.com (http://help.sap.com/businessobject/product_guides/sbo41/en/sbo41sp5_exp_user_en.pdf) found below information:-

Information space data source Description SAP HANA appliance
  • SAP HANA database views
  • SAP BW cubes
Universes (*.unv) SAP BusinessObjects universes created with Universe Designer Excel spreadsheets Excel files published to BI LaunchPad Universes (*.unx) SAP BusinessObjects universes created with the Information Design Tool Source unavailable Deprecated data sources: Sources no longer used by current information spaces, but still available as data sources.

I am not sure if I am interpreting it correctly:-

for "SAP HANA Appliance" data source why it says "SAP BW Cubes", does it means that BICS is supported as connectivity to "Explorer".

Can someone please confirm?

Thanks,

Vivek Chauhan

    Hi Vivek,

    No, BICS connectivity is not supported for Explorer.I guess the guide is referring to HANA on BW scenario.
