Using Explorer and Lumira with SAP BW

March 18th, 2013 No comments

This is a quick post to let you know that there is an excellent whitepaper available which explains everything you need to know about leveraging Explorer and Visual Intelligence with SAP BW.

Organizations must leverage some type of acceleration technology – either HANA or BWA.

Here is the original article:

Here is a link to the must-read technical document:

This document outlines four different scenarios, showing the different implications for SAP BusinessObjects Explorer and SAP Visual Intelligence.

  1. SAP NetWeaver BW standalone without SAP NetWeaver BW Accelerator (BWA) and without SAP HANA
  2. SAP NetWeaver BW in combination with SAP NetWeaver BW Accelerator (BWA)
  3. SAP NetWeaver BW with SAP HANA, DB edition
  4. SAP NetWeaver BW with SAP HANA, Full Use Editions (allows write-back)

In order to leverage Scenario 3 or 4 you must be on:

  • SAP HANA 1.0 SP5 or higher
  • SAP HANA Modeler 1.0 SP4 Rev 37 or higher
  • SAP BusinessObjects Explorer 4.0 SP4 or higher
  • SAP Visual Intelligence 1.0 SP4 or higher
  • SAP Netweaver BW 7.3 SP7 or higher (with SAP Notes:  1703061, 1759172, 1752384, 1733519, 1769374 and 1790333)
When reading the whitepaper, make sure that you read through to the end.  Pages 13-15 provide important cavets and new roadmap information.
