Hi S/4 Experts,

My client is implementing greenfield S/4 HANA and planning to use Embedded Analytics, CDS Views/BOBJ. Client is existing SAP Customer and they have ECC, SCM and BW. They are planning to sunset ECC and BW with S/4 Green field implementation. However with new way of reporting in S/4 they want to understand what are the option for reporting Historical data because they have the regulatory requirement for reporting on 7 Years data. They do have Native HANA Side car with a very small footprint at this point.

If you want to report for past 7 years then you need to migrate your data in S4 accordingly and than you can archive those data and can report as and when you need to report the data from your archive.

Hi Vikas,

Thanks for your reply !

One question though , When the data has to go to archive then why to load it to S/4 HANA first? Or do you want to say that we first move to S/4 and then do the Dynamic Tiering/archive and this way the CDS views would still be able to access the data from archive? I am not sure if CDS views can go beyond core S/4 tables.

How about direct load to archive after converting the data in S/4 format? In this case I may need Ent HANA or any EDW to consolidate the S/4 and Archive data but Client is not willing to invest in any EDW beyond just S/4.
