SAP NetWeaver Demo Model


BI Content

Objectives
The purpose of the SAP NetWeaver Demo Model is to simplify the usage of SAP NetWeaver capabilities
such as Business Intelligence etc. by delivering simple examples which can be easily understood and used.
The Demo Model also comprises content in the area of Business Intelligence (BI). In the area of BI we
provide ready-to-use BI InfoProviders, InfoObjects, and Queries. The BI InfoProviders are filled with up-todate sales data respectively sales planning data.
In the documentation of SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence the Demo Model is used where appropriate.
For testing the data transfer process, you can use the provided .csv files a mentioned in method 1. For
understanding the front end tools, you can use the provided InfoProviders and Queries.

Where to Find the Content


There are two alternative ways to explore the provided content. It is recommended to use method one, if
your system is already at the appropriate Release and SP level (see page 1 Applies To section). If this is
not the case, you can use method 2.

Method 1
The InfoProviders, InfoObjects, and Queries are shipped with the BI technical content for any BI installation,
and can be activated with one mouse click. This is possible as of release

SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SPS16 (=BI SP18)


SAP NetWeaver 7.01 SP0
SAP NetWeaver 7.11 SP0

Note: please check note 1133935 for any additional notes which might have to be applied.

Method 2
The InfoCubes can also be imported in any BI system. However, in this case you would have to create the
Queries on your own. The .csv files you find here:

0D_NW_C01.csv (Actual Data)
