PPDS Live cache data for SAP BOBJ Reporting


We are running SCM 7.1.3 SP 09 on HANA. We are looking at using SAP BOBJ for reporting against DP, SNP and PPDS data. We have configured SC info center for DP and SNP using replication models. But, we didn't see any option to replicate PPDS data from live cache for the reporting. It's mentioned in the roadmap so not sure whether we are missing anything.

Is there a way to replicate PPDS live cache data without writing any ABAP code?

    Hi Vimal,

    PP/DS LC data, i.e. LC objects, are not supported by Supply Chain Info Center according to my latest information. That's really unfortunate considering the relatively high license costs for that product.

    There you would need to write your own data extraction from LC using the respective //OM* function modules. Please keep in mind that they most of the relevant func. modules are not released by SAP for customer usage. However it's the only way to get the necessary data out of the system.

    Cheers, Peter

    • Hi Peter,

      That's the plan. SCIC under the hood provides HANA calculations views which we can enhance and reuse for the reporting. We are planning to build HANA Views on top of APO (similar to SAP HANA Live structures) and leverage SAP BOBJ toolsets for the reporting. We just have to now find out a way to get PPDS data out of LC for BOBJ reporting.
