APO and BW

I am going to use the APO - DP only do I need to use the BW for that or do I need to activate some components of BW or it will be altogether activated. As I dont want to use BW.

I only want to use APO-DP but not BW so how to handle this situation.

Thanks,

Lekhrams

    You dont have to use BW at all for using APO

    APO BW can connect to ECC or can be used as a stand alone depending on your requirement

    There is a mini BW or Data Warehousing Workbench in SCM (its BI7 in SCM5.x)

    APO DP-BW is a inbuilt functinality, If you want to store your historical data in APO then needs to use it as per the requirement. Not necessarly you needs to create infocube...

    For planning area you will require to create infoobjects... which is part of DP-BW..

    Using BW does not mean you need a separate BW system.

    As others have said, you will find APO users will want information and BW is an easy way to provide it for them.

    Hi Sharma,

    You can use report /SAPAPO/TS_D_OBJECTS_COPY - To Activate APO related BW objects. APO related infoobjecst starts with 9A* .

    If you want Demad Planning functinality you need to laod history data to Live cache using Infocube. You can create Info cube in APO built in BW.

    Regards,
