HANA CDS View Annotations

Hi, I am trying to explore more on HANA CDS views for native Analytics model development, all the SAP materials I found are talking about ABAP CDS views, I read the blog by Horst Keller, https://blogs.sap.com/2015/07/20/cds-one-model-two-flavors/ . I get what is the difference between these 2 approaches. But I would like to know how could HANA CDS views be used in modeling and analysis, because all the SAP annotations are given in ABAP CDS views, analytical models and consumption views are built with ease.

Can you please let me know, how could we achieve what ABAP CDS view can do in HANA CDS views?

Thanks

    Hi Sreekanth,

    As per HA300 (training on modeling in HANA), HANA CDS is t.b. used for defining persistence, mostly in the context of app development. For Analytics on HANA, CalcViews need to be utilized.

    As per S4H400, in S/4HANA analytics are built using ABAP CDS.

    In short, HANA CDS views are not to be used for Analytics in any context.
