SAP BW 7.3 on HANA, do we have to still generating SIDs?


Hello masters, here goes a very quick overview,

we are running SAP BW 7.3 on HANA, with data sources from ECC and EWM and lots of extractors runing hourly. We do have reports at SAP BO (universes looking to Calculation Views at HANA) and at another Data Visualization that looks through another layer of our complex structure of DW (already out of BW), but we do not have any BEX anymore.

Here we go, once we do not use reports direct over SAP BW, is it necessary to still using the SID Generation of DSOs??

As I don´t think so, if I´m right, how can we modify the DSOs to stop using this config without having any problem with the huge data inside?

As we are at BW on Hana and not using reports over it, I think we can stop using that and save space and time, is that right?

Thanks in advance
