It is operational data store.

ODS is a BW Architectural component that appears between PSA

( Persistant Staging Area ) and infocubes and that allows Bex ( Business Explorer )
reporting. It is not based on the star schema and is used primarily for details reporting,
rather than for dimensional analysis. ODS objects do not aggregate data as infocubes do.
Data are loaded into an IDS object by inserting new records, updating existing records, or
deleting old records as specified by RECORDMODE value.

Insert characteristic as data target

What are the delta options available when you load from flat file?
• The 3 options for Delta Management with Flat Files:
o Full Upload
o New Status for Changed records (ODS Object only)
o Additive Delta (ODS Object & InfoCube

10. What are the parallel process that could have locking problems
A: 1. heirachy attribute change run
2. loading master data from same infoobject; for ex: avoid master data from different
source systems at the same time.
3. rolling up for the same info cube.
4. selecting deletion of info cube/ ODS and parallel loading.
5. activation or delection of ODS object when loading parallel.
