Information design tool

 

Within the information design tool (IDT), you can create a relational connection to an SAP HANA view or table using JDBC or ODBC drivers, and build a universe using this connection to provide access via other client tools such as Dashboards and Web Intelligence. Alternatively, you can use IDT to create a relational connection directly in the BI platform repository, where it can be used to connect to SAP HANA without a universe for client tools such as Crystal Reports for Enterprise.

Design Studio

 

Design Studio can access SAP HANA data by using an existing olap connection created using the information design tool or CMC. It can also access SAP HANA outside of SAP BI Platform using ODBC data source. Customers should adopt SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio as their primary tool for creating dashboards and applications, both on the Web and on mobile devices, on top of SAP HANA.
