Translate SAP BI Data Modelling to SAP HANA Data Modelling

APOS UMMA for SAP HANA allows you to leverage your investment in SAP BusinessObjects data modelling to realize value quickly from your SAP HANA investment.

There are significant differences between the way that SAP BusinessObjects and the target SAP HANA system model and organize data, but that does not mean you have to start the construction of your HANA data modelling logic from the beginning.

Translate SAP BusinessObjects  Modelling to HANA Calculation Views

APOS UMMA automates the data modelling process by extracting SQL statements from your Web Intelligence reports and translating them into SAP HANA Calculation Views, which HANA uses to model data for SAP Analytics Cloud, SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, and other Analytics solutions, whether Cloud-based or On-Premise.

Deriving SAP BusinessObjects Data Modelling from Web Intelligence

APOS UMMA provides an automated, wizard-driven process to translate or transition your data modelling from SAP BusinessObjects to SAP HANA. UMMA captures the data connections and data modelling logic from SAP BusinessObjects that connect to relational data sources, and replicates those data connections and that data modelling logic in SAP HANA data modelling logic.

APOS UMMA derives important elements of your SAP BusinessObjects data modelling logic from SQL statements within your Web Intelligence report objects, and by extension from your SAP BusinessObjects Universes. UMMA does this through a process of analysis, followed by creation of HANA external tables to link to database tables, creation of database views to replicate Universe derived tables, replication of Web Intelligence queries as database views, and finally creation of HANA Calculation Views.

This process uses automation to overcome the inherent complexity of both your existing SAP BusinessObjects data modelling logic, and SAP HANA's data modelling logic.

When you complete this process, stories from SAP Analytics Cloud can access the data in the original data source through HANA's direct connection to that data source. You can execute this process as many times as required to keep your HANA Calculation Views current with changes that may be made to Universes and Web Intelligence over time.
