4.7 Analytic View Overview

Analytic views are fact tables surrounded by dimensions (attribute views) and hence it resembles star schema.

    • In the language of SAP BW analytical views can be roughly compared with Info Cubes or Info Sets.
    • Analytic views are typically defined on at least one fact table that contains transactional data along with number of tables or attribute views.
    • Analytic views leverage the computing power of SAP HANA to calculate aggregate data, e. g., the number of bikes sold per country, or the maximum power consumed per month.
    • It is specifically designed to execute star schema queries.

HANA Analytical Views are highly optimized for aggregating mass data.

Capabilities of Analytic Views:

    • Defining Calculated & Restricted Measures
        • Aggregation (sum, max, min)
        • Expressions / Operators / Functions
    • Currency and Unit Conversion
    • Variables and Input Parameters
        • Variables and Parameters are usually entered manually by the users to filter data
Analytical View – Structural Overview:
