Reporting on Composite provider VS aDSO in BW4HANA

Hi All,

I have a basic question where I wish to understand the pros and cons of reporting on Composite provider VS aDSO in BW4HANA. Let's assume I just have 1 aDSO to report on with lots of columns and data.

For example:

aDSO

Pros:

1. A layer is removed by not using a CP.

2. Non-Cumulative key figures supported.

Cons:

1. Navigation attributes are not supported.

Of course here, the aDSO pros and cons become the cons and pros for the composite provider. Please help further my understanding in this regard.

Shyam

    Hi,

    Even if you have only one aDSO at the moment, you have to consider the future requirements as well. When a new field from another source is required for your report or you have to split your existing data for performance reasons; you need a CP for merging the data in to the report.
