SAP HANA Data Modeling and CDS Views

Dec 18, 2017 at 12:44 AM

In recent years I have been reading that the strategical direction for SAP products is towards CDS view. And whilst still being supported, the HANA Modeling concept (calculate, attribute etc. view) is becoming less common.

Having that said, SAP is still offering some EGIs on HANA Modeling.

Is it worth investing some time and resources into learning these concepts and best practices, or is the future purely in CDS?

Given how fast this area is moving, can anyone give me some insight into the future direction and the current state of the world?

Hi Mitchell,

I would recommend you to go with ABAP CDS, Because ABAP CDS provides all the features which are in the
views modelled via SAP HANA Studio. It also provides additional features which are not there in HANA views.

ABAP CDS can be easily used in ABAP, In case if you are working on a HANA without ABAP you could use HANA CDS.

Please go through other discussions for more insight into this.

Best Regards,
