With BW on HANA (BW 7.30 SP5 and up) we have introduced the Planning Application Kit - the BW on HANA based in memory enabled planning. Planning functions and disaggregations in queries can now be executed directly in HANA. Unfortunately there are some circumstances under which a planning function or a disaggregation can NOT be executed in HANA but will be executed in ABAP. The system behaves similar to BW-IP in this case.
Sometimes it is quite hard to decide whether a planning function/disaggregation has been executed in HANA or in ABAP. Here is a little collection of ideas how you can check this...
SAP BusinessObjects Analysis for Office can be used as an Excel planning front end (in conjunction with BW-IP or PAK). When planners change their plan data they do not only want to enter the absolute number in the systems. Sometimes they want to raise the value in a certain cell by say 10% or want to raise the existing value by a certain increment. As PAK and BW-IP expect absolute numbers the user has to calculate the number in a little side calculation. In this paper we show how a simple solution can be realized where the planner can enter a simply formula and apply this to one or several cells in the worksheet. This functionality is often referred to as 'pocket calculation'.
In the How to Paper - Log Changes in Plan Data Using DataStore Objects (see http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-16124) we have given an example how to use the Logging BAdI in SAP NetWeaver BW-IP. This paper is building on this How to Paper and describes how the logging functionality can now also be used in conjunction with HANA and the Planning Applications Kit (in memory planning on SAP NetWeaver BW).
This webinar provides insights into the BW In-memory planning solution PAK (planning applications kit).
It contains a brief introduction, goes into detail with the options that the PAK gives you for developing superior planning applications, and will give you recommendations for these implementations. The webinar also shows a live example of a planning applications kit solution and demonstrate its performance.
In How-to Guide Build a Fast and Flexible Comment Solution for BEx Web Applications we have introduced a concept for comments in SAP NetWaver BW BEx Web applications. In a second paper we have described a planning function that can be used to delete records together with the comments created with the above mentioned solution.
In the current paper we now introduce a planning function that can be used to copy data records together with the comments created with the comment solution.
In our How-to Guide How To Build a Fast and Flexible Comment Solution for BEx Web Applications we have introduced a solution for using comment in BEx Web Templates.
In the current paper we introduce a planning function that can delete data records together with the comments created with the mentioned solution in one step.
