Future production analytics will be based on SAP HANA, core data services (CDS) views aggregating transactional data dynamically, and powerful analytical UIs for multi-dimensional reporting. With this, it will be possible to replace the current logistics information system (LIS).
- You will be able to use classic LIS and the future production analytics in parallel for some time, if you do not switch off the update of the LIS tables. Once future production analytics supports all your analytics requirements, you can switch off the update of the LIS tables. Once you have switched off updating LIS tables, you will notice the following improvements:
- There is an improved performance of many transactions (that means: fewer tables to update, fewer locking conflicts)
- Less memory is required
