BW technical names strange limitations
Newbie SAP BW Developers asking me about BW technical names limitations:
Info-objects (characteristics and key figures) - max 9 chars,
Info-providers (cubes, multi) - max 9 chars,
DSO - max 8 chars,
SPO - max 6 char.
They found that's not user friendly.
And they asking about - who did this, for which purposes and why in 21 century (with SAP HANA, Big Data, etc) they still exists.
