Hi Ramesh,

R-Script node is used to implement functions from the R statistical analysis programming language. You should use R-Script when you need statistics on the data itself. For example, it can find the standard deviation of a numeric column.

There are endless advanced capabilities of R that are outside the scope of my answer. It would require an expert in statistics and the R language itself to fully describe the capabilities of this node.

For the general use cases of SDI for replication from remote sources to HANA, R-Script will not be necessary or even useful. You should also remember that R-Script node cannot be used in real-time processing.

Best regards,

Jeff K
