Business Content activation in 7.0 new datasource scenario
I would appreciate if you could help me in an issue Iu2019m currently facing.
Up to know Iu2019ve been working in development & maintenance tasks in several projects, but always upon BW 3.5 and 7.0 but with old datasource model, that is, with the TR and UR Business Content objects.
However, Iu2019m now responsible of designing and building a new project with entirely 7.0 new datasource model (DTP and transformations) and using as much Business Content as possible (Iu2019m especially interested in installing all Logistic Cockpit datamodel (SD, MM scenarios)).
Iu2019ve been reading in SDN about the topic and found some nice post, although some are quite old, so Iu2019m doubting whether something has changed or not in these last years.
To be more precise, my thoughts are:
- Business Content is still based on 3.X? Are there any BC transformations available for those SD, MM datamodel flows?
- If itu2019s only 3.X, as I need to base my datamodel in new functionality, what should I do? Especially, taking into account that Iu2019m interested in not losing all standard coding (start routines and formula fields available in old UR)
a) Install as 3.X datasource and migrate (somehow transform BC activated coding and mappings into new transformation codings and mappings?)
b) Install all I can (like cubes and DSO) and create manually all transformations? If so, is there any easy way to get those mapping fields/coding done instead of manually copy/pasting?
Thanks in advance for your help. Points guaranteed for useful feedback
