Anyone can explain the implementation steps of bw on hana

In the blog of BW on HANA,

I found below description:

'Hey everyone. Several people have asked how they can best prepare for the imminent release of BW on HANA. It's pretty simple:

1.Upgrade to BW 7.3 SP5

2.Migrate existing RDBMS to HANA 1.0 SP33. '

I believe in step2, we need to decide which table should be converted to column based,which should be remained as previous.

My question is:

For this important task, why there is few articls/topics on it?

Am I understanding is wrong?

Dears,

Do you have any idea or clue on this topic?

    Hello ,

    We need to decide which cubes/DSO's must be inmemory based. Regarding Table if it is column or row based we have the option for the new tables and the earlier tables BW automatically decides.

    SAP planned an RDS for BW migration to BW-HANA in Q2. Looking forward for that RDS.

    Hi,

    You would need to upgrade your existing BW to 7.30 SP05 (on other database), install BW 7.30 SP05 on HANA db, and then perform system copy from existing BW 7.30 SP05 (on other database) to BW 7.30 SP05 on HANA.

    For more details, please refer to task 4.4 (Heterogeneous System Copy) on the following PDF documentation:

    SAP releases you from thinking and BW automatically decides which tables are created in row store (basicaly all meta-data tables) and which are created in row store (basicaly all BW objects' tables). Cheers. -Vitaliy
