S4/HANA migration affect on BW

1106 Views Last edit Jul 17, 2017 at 04:27 PM 2 rev


Considering a migration process from ECC to S4/HANA, what would be it's affects on a BW 7.x system?

Since most of the extractors are still supported in S4/HANA, there will be some adjustments for sure.

However, there're some major changes like material number length. Since it's extended from 18 to 40; in BW side our standard 0MATERIAL characteristic will no longer cover it.

Is there any solution for such cases?

PS: Note 2289424 says that BI_CONT is no longer supported with S4/HANA.
Does it mean that existing BW models sourced from ECC, will no longer work when it's migrated to S4/HANA?
