Real Time datasources

Hello everyone

why is that only ODS used for the real time datasources and not the infocubes as infocubes are better for reporting purpose.

second question can real time datasources built on the generic datasources??

thanks

    Even if the req is open the same can be closed by 'close request of realtime info packgae". So it does not matter, if you use a cube or a DSO. But why DSO is used now is may be the reporting is at detailed level. This my feel.

      Hi,

      one main reason why it is implemented on the DataStore level is the delta calculation feature of the DSO. The data is activated by the deamon.

      This means you will get the correct figures even if you load after images etc.

      This is not possible with InfoCubes.

      I hope this help, Michael

    Hi chandra karnat,

    usually real time data means lot of data being collected.

    For that kind of application, ODS is the preferred structure.

    Typical OLTP Versus OLAP kind of argument.

    Why ODS for real time.

    Since data is immediately available for reporting and we have an open request we have a specific update processing for the data target (with a special DTP). This has currently only been implemented for DataStore Object by SAP.

    Can generic datasources be built as REAL TIME datasources.

    answer is Yes
