.The data flow consists of the following phases:
The data is replicated from SAP APO to SAP HANA.
The method of data replication depends on which of the following scenarios you are using:
In this scenario, master data is stored in any database, and planning data (transaction data) is stored in SAP liveCache. To replicate master data, you must set up a secondary database connection for SAP Landscape Transformation (SLT). To replicate planning data, you must set up a replication model and run the report Replication of Planning Data to SAP HANA (/SAPAPO/REPL).
In this scenario, master data is stored in a SAP HANAhttps://tekslate.com/sap-hana-training/ database and planning data is stored in SAP liveCache, which can be in any database including SAP HANA. You do not need to replicate master data, as it is already available in database tables within SAP HANA. However, you must still set up a replication model and run the report Replication of Planning Data to SAP HANA (/SAPAPO/REPL). These steps of the replication process are required even if your SAP liveCache is stored in SAP HANA.
The data is used by analytic applications based on SAP HANA.
Before you use an analytic application, you must make the replicated data available for the application through a virtual data model (VDM), in which the data is organized in reuse views and query views. Depending on the type of the application you want to use, you have the following options:
To use HANA-based SAP SCM applications such as the SAP Supply Chain Info Center, you have to install the application and import the content of the VDM into the application.
To use HANA-based business intelligence (BI) tools such as SAP Lumira and SAP BusinessObjects Analysis, Edition for Microsoft Office, you can leverage the APO VDM, or you can create your own VDM using the reuse views and query views delivered in the APO VDM.
To add customized content (for example, custom key performance indicators) to HANA-based SAP SCM applications such as the SAP Supply Chain Info Center, you must create your own query views from the reuse views delivered in the APO VDM.
