  • Create a live model with S/4HANA data

SAP S/4HANA integration

With SAP Analytics Cloud's ability to connect to SAP S/4HANA, S/4HANA customers can leverage their on-premise system with SAP Analytics Cloud's cloud-based modeling and analytics capabilities.

The Integration with an S/4HANA system can be done in two ways:

  • As a live data connection: no data will be stored on the cloud.
  • As an import data connection: data will be stored in the cloud and updated periodically.
When using SAP Analytics Cloud as the interface for planning activities, data must be imported from S/4HANA.

Identify data for S/4HANA models

SAP S/4HANA live data connection

You can create live data connections to SAP S/4HANA systems using the direct, tunnel, and cloud connection types. You can build stories based on released CDS views or leverage queries created by you.

Data flow for an SAP S/4HANA live model. From the bottom left, S/4HANA tables flow into Fiori report (bottom right) and S/4HANA CDS view (above) and from there is an SAC live connection that feeds into SAC live models (top left. From the SAC live model, an SAC story can be created (top right).

Create a live model using S/4HANA data

Task 1:

Business example

You need to create a story and the data is in SAP S/4HANA. You need to access live data from SAP S/4HANA using a delivered core data services (CDS) view.

Task flow

In this practice exercise, you will perform the following tasks:

  • View the data in SAP S/4HANA
  • Create a live model
  • Use the live model in a new story
