SAP DS and BW how to work with them together?

Hi All,

I'm working in a company that has been acquired recently SAP Data Service. This company also have BW with so many infocubes constructed that provides information to reports via analyzer.

The SAP DS was purchased to make the integration between all company systems, not only SAP.

We are a little bit I confused how SAP DS and BW can work together. Their are complementary products or can I substitute the BW by SAP DS?

Generally are they used together or the companies only use one of them?

Is it possible connect DS to our BW infocubes? We think if were necessary to rebuild info cubes inside SAP DS we would have so much work, because DS seems work directly with SAP tables and not info cubes.

Could someone please clarify for me how the best way to work with those products?

Thanks a lot for any help provided.

Best Regards,

Rodrigo

    Plesae do some research first before asking questions here.

    Hi Dirk, How is going?

    I did that before post the question and I read a lot about that. However, my idea was gather from other consultants via this communication channel more examples and advice about this architecture.

    I didn't find anything with in google showing me a real case and a opinion from someone who really use both products, the pros and cons and so on. I just found concepts.

    Anyway, thanks for you reply.

    Best Regards,

    Rodrigo
