SAP Fiori Analytical Application setup for S/4 HANA

Hi Experts,

We are using central hub deployment with S/4 HANA 1610 backend. We would like to use the standard analytical applications some of the standard analytical applications referred from Fiori reference library. Could you please clarify the below queries?

1. Is the below note sufficient required to run analytical apps?

0002289865 - Configuration steps for S/4 HANA analytics

2. I assume there is no add on components required to enable analytical apps (Smart business and non smart business apps) for S/4 HANA. Is this correct?

3. As the note we need to create a BW client system. In our scenario, we do not have any BW system as we use only S/4 HANA system. Is it a mandatory step to be added? Why it is needed?

4. As per the note, do we stills need to follow the design studio template configuration if we dont use BW?

5. Can we just go ahead assign the role and activate the odata services (inscluding the data for smart business activation), UI5 apps mentioned in the Fiori reference library should be fine?

6. In which case I need to use the KPI modeler? Is it required only when if we have to create a custom analytical tile?

Best Regards,

Ram

    Hi Ram

    1. You should also look at these references

    2. Yes, embedded analytics are part of your S/4AHANA system. This includes real time analytics such as Smart Business and Analytics Path Framework.

    3.Yes it's a technical part of the analytics engine configuration.

    5. Most will be fine... make sure you are activating the Smart Business OData Services for S/4HANA - and not the old ones for Suite on HANA.

    6. You can use the KPI Workspace and related Smart Business Modeler apps to adapt the timelines, thresholds and parameters of Smart Business apps and Fiori Overview Pages. See this blog

    You can find more information at SAP Fiori for S/4HANA wiki

      Hi Jocelyn,

      Thanks a lot for the response! Few other queries.

      1. Is it mandatory to activate the embedded analytics in the S/4 HANA system in order to use the standard / custom analytical fiori apps or smart business modeler apps?

      2. Can we use the same client as BW Client as we do not have separate BW client?

      3. Could you please share the configuration steps to be followed to active analytical apps in a fresh s/4 HANA system?

      4. Can we configure and run analytical apps in embedded hub? Does it need a web dispatcher?

      Best Regards,

    Hi Ram,

    1. Is it mandatory to activate the embedded analytics in the S/4 HANA system in order to use the standard / custom analytical fiori apps or smart business modeler apps?

    Yes its requried as some of the Analytical apps contain BEx Queries. This needs to be activated in BW client that we setup.

    2. Can we use the same client as BW Client as we do not have separate BW client?

    Yes we can setup BW Client in any clients apart from 000

    3. Could you please share the configuration steps to be followed to active analytical apps in a fresh s/4 HANA system?

    Follow the BW client configuration, after that start referencing the apps from the Technical or Business Catalog and add to the group and roles and assign to end user.

    4. Can we configure and run analytical apps in embedded hub? Does it need a web dispatcher?

    Not Mandatory, We can also proceed without Webdispatcher
