SAP Fiori BW on HANA scenario / Simple Finance

Hi All,

I’m contacting you because we are in front of a completely new scenario. We have an important doubt regarding our landscape configuration, and the applications which can be deployed on it. At high level, our landscape has an SAP Business Suite using an Oracle DB, and an SAP BW system using SAP HANA.

Our questions:

1. We assume that is impossible to install any Fiori Apps which require the Simple Finance Add-On on the Business Suite (even if they are transactional)

o From the official SAP documentation we understand that the can only run on HANA DB
o Is it correct?

2. Having in our environment SAP BW on HANA we assume we are on one of the Side-by-side scenarios (see image below, highlighted in red). So we are assuming most of the analytical applications will work fine, is this correct?

o As far as we understood, it will be a matter of activation of XS HANA engine to make applications work

Any comment or advice regarding these questions would be really appreciated.

Thank you very much and best regards,
