    Hi,

    Cube is used for detailed level data, we can analyse data 16*245 angles.

    Regards,

    Sai.

    Hi Satish,

    Infocubes are preffered for Atomic and Summarized Reporting whereas DSOs are more detailed and granular.

    But there are certain major drawbacks of Using DSOs for Reporting :

    - Low performance as direct reporting will be extremly slow due to large amount of data stored in single table.

    - Multi-Dimensional analysis not possible.

    - Calculation overheads for KPIs

    Choice of DSO/Cube depends on the requirements but Infocubes are more preffered for reportings.

    Please check below links for more details to help make choice easier :

    Hi,

    I you want to do detail level reporting, DSO would be preferred because in DSO generally we store detail level data .

    If you want to make a report which involved calculations, then we should choose cube .

    Hope the above reply was helpful.

    Kind Regards,
