The BW OLAP processor selects an appropriate aggregate during a query run or a navigation step. Business Content Business Content is a complete set of BW objects developed by SAP to support the OLAP tasks. but not change. a query. Authorization profile An authorization profile is made up of multiple authorizations. The maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 32. update rules. and other mySAP solutions. They are similar to the InfoAreas used with InfoCubes. If high level manager often access the report focus revenue in 2008 by customer. and extractors for SAP R/3. characteristics. queries. You can do aggregate and it may only contain 2 dimensions with 100 records. B BEx Short for Business Explorer. Authorization object An authorization object is used to define user authorizations. It contains roles. assume you may have 10 dimensions and each one have 10 value. that's mean only 2 dimension are involved. It has fields with values to specify authorized activities. The objective when using aggregates is to reduce I/O volume. Reference Aggregate Application component Application components are used to organize InfoSources. Authorization An authorization defines what a user can do. You can simply use business content directly. InfoCubes. such as display and execution. key figures. For examples. or take it as template for your project to speed up implementations. and to which SAP objects. such as queries. When the cardinality of a column is low. Bitmap indices are very effective for Boolean operations of the WHERE clause of a SELECT statement.RSARCHIPROIOBJ RSARCHIPROLOC RSARCHIPROLOCSEL RSARCHIPROPID RSARCHREQ RSARCHREQFILES RSARCHREQSEL Open Hub Destination RSBOHSERVICETP RSBREQUESTDELTA RSBREQUESTMESS RSBREQUID RSBREQUID3RD RSBREQUIDRUN RSBSTRUCTURE BW Archiving: General Archiving Properties BW ARchiving: General Local Properties BW Archiving: Archived Data Area BW Archiving: Program References of InfoProvider BW Archiving: Archiving Request BW Archiving: Verfified Archive Files BW Archiving: Request-Selections Open Hub: Service Types Open Hub: Cross Reference Outbound/Inbound Open Hub: Log for a Request Open Hub: Requests Open Hub: Status of 3rd Party Requests Open Hub: Table with Status for a Request Open Hub: Generated Structures and Tables BW Glossary. The maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 10. on authorized business objects. It includes following tools to present the reports to end user: Analyzer / Web Application Designer / Report Designer / Web Analyzer. If no appropriate aggregate exists. a user with an authorization can display and execute. Authorizations are defined using authorization objects. Aggregate rollup Aggregate rollup is a procedure to update aggregates with new data loads. The maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 10. Another possible choice in BW on this topic is B-tree index. thereby reducing I/O volume. workbooks. Definitions & Explanations A Aggregate An aggregate is a subset of an InfoCube. the BW OLAP processor retrieves data from the original InfoCube instead. a bitmap index size will be small. that means you may have up to 10^10 possible records. For example. Bitmap index A bitmap index uses maps of bits to locate records in a table. InfoSources. It reduce the I/O and improve the performance. BW .

DataMart The distribution of contents of ODS or InfoCube into other BW data targets on the same or on other BW systems DataSource A DataSource is not only a structure in which source system fields are logically grouped together.You can set it in SPRO Data Mining Data mining is the process of extracting hidden patterns from data. Compress will move the data in F table to E table and aggregate the records with same char. automatically. such as Customer ID. then we can add the compound attribute 0SOURSYSTEM (source system ID) to the characteristic. Change run Change run is a procedure used to activate characteristic data changes. Sales Representative ID. BW Statistics BW Statistics is a tool for recording and reporting system activity and performance information. When we talking about BW. and Transaction Date. It is based on the same techniques used for scheduling R/3 background jobs. BWA / BIA BW/BI Accelarator is a tool that improves the performance of BW 7.5. BW Monitor BW Monitor displays data loading status and provides assistance in troubleshooting if errors occur. Take the most famous story "beer and diapers" as example. When logging on to an SAP system.x queries on InfoCubes. Client A client is a subset of data in an SAP system. Material Number. Cache buffers query result data. Data shared by all clients is called client-independent data. Compress Compressing will bringing data from different requests together into one single request (request ID 0) in Infocube. Compound attribute A compound attribute differentiates a characteristic to make the characteristic uniquely identifiable. as compared with client-dependent data.Business Warehouse (BW) is a Data Warehousing solution from SAP. The maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 9. if the same characteristic data from different source systems mean different things. The story is a myth. D Data packet size For the same amount of data. And be careful if you defined your own delta mechanism. but it shows how data mining seeks to understand the relationship between different actions. They mined its receipts and proved the observations. It waste the table space and affects query performance. It is one of the function provided by SAP BI. You can easily manage the data with Request ID. For example. Characteristic Characteristics are descriptions of fields. high data volume and high frequency of queries C Cache / OLAP Cache A technology to improve the performance. Communication structure The communication structure is the structure underlying the InfoSource. T-code: RSMO BW Scheduler BW Scheduler specifies when to load data. in order to provider them for further accesses. You can eliminate these disadvantages by compressing data and bringing data from different requests together into one single request (request ID 0). Unit of Measure.0. Wall-Mart noticed that men often bought beer at the same time they bought diapers. The latest version is SAP Business Intelligence 7. and sales skyrocketed. But the request ID have disadvantages cause the same data record (with same characteristics but different request ID) to appear more than once in the fact table. So they put diapers next to the beer coolers. It is widly used when you are sure that the data in InfoCube is correct and you won't need Request ID in the future. Once in the system. It enables quick access to any data with a low amount of administrative effort and is especially useful for sophisticated scenarios with unpredictable query types. they are group with Requests ID. the data packet size determines how work processes will be used in data loading. Cache Mode Determines whether and in what way the query result and navigational states are to be saved in the OLAP Cache. but also an object that contains ETTL-related information. the more work processes needed. it often talking about BW3. the user has access to both client-dependent data and client-independent data. Data Warehouse Data Warehouse is a dedicated reporting and analysis environment based on the star schema (Extended) database design technique and requiring special attention to the data ETTL process. When you load data into Infocube. Four types of DataSources exist: y y y y DataSources for transaction data DataSources for characteristic attributes DataSources for characteristic texts DataSources for characteristic hierarchies . a user must specify which client to use. The smaller the data packet size. 0SOURSYSTEM is provided with the Business Content. Technically.

Reference BW330. For example. Full update The Full update option in the InfoPackage definition requests BW to load all data that meet the selection criteria specified via the Select data tab. Display attribute A display attribute provides supplemental information to a characteristic. If you upload data into an InfoCube. DB Connect A BW function that offers flexible options for extracting data directly into the BW from tables and views in database management systems that are connected to the BW in addition to the default connection. After a and loading data correctly and quickly. You can use tables and views from the database management systems that are supported by SAP to transfer data. the data is shifted from the F-fact table to the E-fact table. the complete data for the query no longer has to be read from the database again. it is always written into the F-fact table. Dim tables contain pointers to the Fact tables & to the Master Data (SID tables). In this way. The F-fact tables for aggregates are always empty. InfoSet is similar to a view but allows outer joins between tables. Check the definition and example at: http://help. when they are changes to the data basis. The maximum number of characters allowed for a DataSource's technical name is 32. And these can be saved and reused in the in othercontexts. the F-fact table can have entries as well as when you use the functionality 'do not compress requests' for Aggregates. Prerequisite: a transformation to define the data flow between the source and target object. This data can be evaluated using a BEx query. or time period. These additional requests will be updated into the OLAP Cache. Development class A development class is a group of objects that are logically related. Reference ODS in BW3.5 A DataStore object serves as a storage location for consolidated and cleansed transaction data or master data on a document (atomic) level. can also contain character fields (such as order status. DataSources are used to make data known to the BW. There are 3 kinds of DSO: Standard DataStore Object / Write-Optimized DataStore Objects / DataStore Objects for Direct Update. transforming. Dimension table Part of the Star Schema structure for InfoCubes. since aggregates are compressed automatically. Granularity . Also known as ETL. If you compress the data. ETTL ETTL. one of the most challenging tasks in building a data warehouse. is design to avoid isolated applications.x. E-fact table is optimized for Reading => good for Queries. There are two fact tables: the F-fact table and the E-fact table. A DataStore object contains key fields (such as document number. You can also use the data transfer process to access InfoProvider data directly. Before a delta update occurs. Reference Navigation attribute Drill-down Drill-down is a user navigation step intended to get further detailed information. Extraction Structure The data structure used by the extraction program to extract data. where it is then processed in the same way as data from all other sources. Here key figures & pointers to the dimension tables are stored. F-fact table is optimized for Writing => good for Loads Free characteristic A free characteristic is a characteristic in a query used for drill-downs. G Generic data extraction Generic data extraction is a function in Business Content that allows us to create DataSources based on database views or InfoSet queries. E EDW The Enterprise Data Warehouse. is the process of extracting. The data from a DataStore object can be updated with a delta update into InfoCubes (standard) and/or other DataStore objects or master data tables (attributes or texts) in the same system or across different systems. Here the data is filtered and showed in the intial result of the query. product group. the delta process must be initialized. a comprehensive / harmonized data warehouse solution. in addition to key figures. Its fields are mapped to the fields of the SAP Source System DataSource. F Fact tables The Fact table is the central table of the InfoCube. replicating DataSources from a source system will create identical DataSource structures in the BW system.htm DTP The Data Transfer Process (DTP) transfers data from source objects to target objects in BI 7. Delta update The Delta update option in the InfoPackage definition requests BW to load only the data that have been accumulated since the last update. It is not displayed in the initial result of a query run. Reference Delta update Filter Filter is used to restrict data to a certain business sector. you can drill-down to detail report through free characteristic DSO Short for Data Store Object. customer). document item) and data fields that. Delta Caching Additional requests will be read from the InfoCube's (F) fact table.If the source system is R/3.

Two types of InfoObject Catalogs exist: one for This information is used to execute physical optimizations. For high level manager tend to high aggregated report such as by month or by See: IDOC Basics Index An index is a technique used to locate needed records in a database table quickly. The multi-cube itself does not contain any data. the user can select characteristics and key figures from different basic cubes. different index types from those in a standard case are used. InfoArea InfoAreas are used to organize InfoCubes and InfoObjects. data reside in the basic cubes. BW generates a 30-digit code starting with ZPAK as an InfoPackage's technical name.sdn. such as Per Unit Sales Quantity Sold. Each InfoCube is assigned to an InfoArea. Metadata contains data about data. InfoSource An InfoSource is a structure in which InfoObjects are logically grouped together.0 it is optional. When you creating a InfoCube. In BW 3. and Sales Revenue. But operational reports always require more detail information such as by day or by product spec. L Line item dimension A line item dimension in a fact table connects directly with the SID table of its sole characteristic. BW uses two types of indices: B-tree indices for regular database tables and bitmap indices for fact tables and aggregate tables. Reference Characteristic.0: http://help. InfoObject In each InfoObject is assigned to an InfoArea as well.htm K Key figure Key figures are numeric values or quantities. Multi-cube A multi-cube is a union of basic cubes. a dimension has a high cardinality if the number of dimension entries is 20% (or more) of the number of fact table entries. The maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 30. To a user. InfoCube An InfoCube is a fact table and its associated dimension tables in the star schema.5 it is a MUST and in BI the multi-cube is similar to a basic cube.htm Information Lifecycle Mangement Generally. When creating a query. depending on the database platform. See: https://wiki. Through an InfoObject Catalog. The maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 30. It is only possible if exactly one characteristic in a dimension. key figures and characteristics are collectively called InfoObjects. you have chance to use this feature on define dimension. Reference ADK and archiving for more information. H High Cardinality means that this dimension contains a high number of attributes. The maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 32. I IDoc IDoc (Intermediate Document) is used in SAP to transfer data between two systems. InfoCubes and characteristics interact with InfoSources to get source system and key figures InfoObject Catalog InfoObject Catalogs organize InfoObjects. InfoCube compression InfoCube compression is a procedure used to aggregate multiple data loads at the request level. The difference: and one for key figures. The maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 9. the data was generated in OLTP system such as R/3. The maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 30.Granularity describes the level of detail in a data warehouse. And online help: http://help. Logical system A logical system is the name of a client in an SAP system. For example. It is a specific instance of a data structure called the IDoc Type. Information Lifecycle Management includes data target management and data archiving. Generally.htm And the Recommendations for Using InfoSources in BI 7. In BW. It is determined by business requirements and technology capabilities. important object properties and their relationships with other objects. N Navigational attribute . InfoPackage An InfoPackage specifies when and how to load data from a given source system. rather. M Metadata Repository Metadata repository contains information about the metadata objects of SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence. It help to improve the performance because we do not need to join SID table when accessing the master data. whose processing logic is defined in the IDoc Interface.

PSA The Persistent Staging Area (PSA) is a data staging area in BW. Each time that BW Scheduler loads data into an InfoCube. Reference DSO. Partitioning in Groups: Infocubes in one group. Partitioning Type provides options for handling the data that is returned by the individual InfoProviders from the MultiProvider separately and saving it in the cache separately.0. and other applications.. DDS . before the data are sent to its destinations in as specified by the 0RECORDMODE value.Executive information systems. such as 0customer_0country Number range A number range is a range of numbers that resides in application server memory for quick number assignments. The naming convention for a navigational attribute is: InfoObject_Attribute. It can be done in Cube or DB level. data are loaded into an ODS object by inserting new records. Q Query A BW query is a selection of characteristics and key figures for the analysis of the data in an InfoCube. RFC . y y y Read all data Read during navigation Read during navigation & expanding hierarchy Reconstruct Reconstruct is a procedure used to restore load requests from PSA.. The benefit of using partition is mainly focus on: y y y Well balanced partition / fragments Improve read performance Fast of delete partition by "Drop" instead of "Delete from where" Fact table can be partitioned over a time characteristic either 0CALMONTH or 0FISCPER(Fiscal year/period).Decision Support System. individual Infocubes are saved separately.sdn. EIS . to execute a query. A query refers to only one InfoCube.htm Profile Generator Profile Generator is a tool used to create authorization profiles. rather than for dimensional analysis. It allows us to check data in an intermediate location. thereby significantly reducing I/O volume. Process Chain A process chain is a sequence of processes that are scheduled to wait in the background for an event. OLAP is generally used to analysis data. R Read mode Read mode determines how often the OLAP processor reads data from the database during navigation. O ODS ODS is a BW architectural component located between PSA and InfoCubes that allows BEx reporting. P Parallel query A parallel query uses multiple database Instead. which means it is generally used to support the daily operation. You can include process chains in other process chains to manage a group of them. The maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 30. More information please reference: http://help. Partition A partition is a piece of physical storage for database tables and indices. For example. If the needed data reside in one or a few partitions. It is not based on the star schema and is used primarily for detail reporting. or deleting old records. a unique request ID is created in the data packet dimension table of the InfoCube. ERP / PDM / MES . OLTP / OLAP Short for Online Transaction Processing / Online Analytical Partitioning Type For MultiProvider Repartition is possible in SAP BI 7. It is design at the implementation phase and one of the most important jobs in support and maintenance phase. when available. SAP R/3. Open Hub Service The open hub service enables you to distribute data from an SAP BW system into external data marts. Each InfoProvider Separate: All InfoProviders are saved separately. then only those partitions will be selected and examined by a SQL statement. OLTP system are Transacton-Orientated. See https://wiki. It provides supplemental information about a characteristic and enables navigation from characteristic to characteristic during a query. ODS objects do not aggregate data as InfoCubes do. and other infoproviders are saved together in groups according to their properties. SAP BW. Partitioning in Groups: Basis Cubes Separate: similar as above. and its result is presented in a BEx Excel sheet. analytical applications. Request A request is a data load request from BW Scheduler.A navigational attribute indicates a characteristic-to-characteristic relationship between two characteristics. y y y y No Partitioning: All results of the InfoProviders are summarized as one result and cached. updating existing records. For examples. known as meta chains.

Reclustering It allows you to change the clustering of Infocubes and Data store objects that already contain data. Role In Profile Generator. BW uses the cost-base optimizer for Oracle databases. For example.0 Variable A variable is a query parameter. If the update rule is applied to data from an ODS object. When the source system is a non-SAP system. The database optimizer generates the most efficient execution plan based on either the heuristic ranking of available execution plans or the cost calculation of available execution plans. HR may belong to administration division before 2007 and belong to supporting division after 2008. T Time-dependent entire hierarchy A time-dependent entire hierarchy is a time-dependent hierarchy whose nodes and leaves are not time-dependent. Source system A source system is a protocol that BW uses to find and extract data. Star schema A star schema is a technique used in the data warehouse database design to help data retrieval for online analytical processing. which saves I/O and memory during OLAP. UVWXYZ Update rule An update rule specifies how data will be updated into their targets. S SID SID (Surrogate-ID) translates a potentially long key for an InfoObject into a short four-byte integer. Transfer rule Transfer rules specify how DataSource fields are mapped to InfoSource InfoObjects. InfoCubes. It is common to all cubes Support slowly changing dimensions Aggregates in its own tables for faster access Statistics For a SQL statement.0. DSOs. The TRF process allows you to consolidate. Transfer structure A transfer structure maps DataSource fields to InfoSource InfoObjects. but the hierarchy itself is not time-dependent. A user assigned to that role also has the corresponding authorization profile. You must use DTP to load data to InfoProvider. Variables act as placeholders for: y y y y y Characteristic values Hierarchies Hierarchy nodes Texts Formula elements Virtual InfoProvider . System landscape The system landscape specifies the role of each system and the paths used in transporting objects among the various systems. The data target can be an InfoCube or an ODS object. If the update rule is applied to data from an InfoSource. The maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 32. For example. transfer rule and update rule are replaced by transformation. Statistics is the information that the cost-based optimizer uses to calculate the cost of available execution plans and select the most appropriate one for execution. many execution plans are possible. transfer rule and update rule are replaced by transformation. It gets its value from user input or takes a default value set by the variable creator. Transformations (TRF) TRFs connect source objects (DataSources.RFC (Remote Function Call) is a call to a function module in a system different from the caller's usually another SAP system on the local network. such as a flat file or a third-party tool. InfoSets) to Data Targets (InfoProviders) of a data-staging process. cleanse & integrate data. the maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 10. you have one hierarchy but one of his node was changed from 2007 and 2008. an authorization profile corresponds to a role. Time-dependent hierarchy structure A time-dependent hierarchy structure consists of nodes or leaves that are time-dependent. In BI 7. either R/3 or BW. In BI 7. The maximum number of characters allowed for the technical name is 30.0. System Administration Assistant System Administration Assistant is a collection of tools used to monitor and analyze general system operation conditions. A user can be assigned to multiple roles. you have two hierarchy which presents organization of company in 2007 and 2008. SAP BW use extended star schema with following advantage compare to classical star schema: y y y y y y Use of generated key (short number) for faster access External hierarchy Multi-language support Master data are separated. But we still have chance to use it in BI 7. the update rule's technical name will match the InfoSource's technical name. They replace combination of transfer rules & update rules. the update rule's technical name will match the ODS object's technical name prefixed with number 8. the technical name matches the logical system name. When the source system is an SAP system.

BW assigns a 25-digit ID to each workbook. for writing codes where query relations need to be required. Workbook A BW workbook is an Excel file with a BEx query result saved in BDS. Only the structure of the VirtualProvider is defined in BI. This can be obtained by using the relationship as shown in the diagram below: List of Important Query Related Tables RSZELTTXT RSZELTXREF RSRREPDIR RSZCOMPDIR RSZELTDIR RSZELTDIR RSZRANGE RSZSELECT RSZCOMPIC RSZCALC RSZCEL RSZELTPRIO RSZGLOBV RSZELTATTR RSZCHANGES RSZELTPROP Texts of reporting component elements Directory of query element references Directory of all reports Directory of reporting components Directory of the reporting component elements Directory of the reporting component elements Selection specification for an element Selection properties of an element Assignment reuseable component <-> InfoCube Definition of a formula element Query Designer: Directory of Cells Priorities with element collisions Global Variables in Reporting Attribute selection per dimension element Change history of reporting components Element properties (settings) .A Virtual Provider is a type of InfoCube where the data is not managed in BI. relation between BEx Tables Most of the times.Some of which are: --> Find Where Used List ---> Find List of queries restricted on the particualr value. --> Find the queries list where selection is used etc. This linking of the SAP BW tables help to meet multiple requirements. our work is done. We always think if we know the relation between them. the data is read for reporting using an interface with another system. Users need merely name a workbook's title. we are confused while debugging any query for getting where used list.
