SAP Business Warehouse for the BusinessObjects Community Episode 2

Diversified Semantic Layer logo

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the next episode in our Diversified Semantic Layer podcast series about Business Warehouse for the BusinessObjects community.  Once again I’m joined by Ethan Jewett, a fellow SAP Mentor from Wisconsin.

In this episode, we have connected Data Services 4.0 with Business Warehouse 7.03 using an RFC call, and load sales data into a Persistent Staging Area (PSA) using Data Services jobs.  We also create InfoObjects for the relevant characteristics and key figures in our sales data, which we then load into a DataStore Object (DSO).  Along the way, we (Ethan most of the time) discuss where BW has good and not-so-good features.

Our next episode will cover creating a Bex query on our DSO, connecting the BusinessObjects tools to the Bex query, and then starting to load in our second disparate data source, to begin the process of building an Enterprise Data Warehouse.

We hope you enjoy watching.
