  11. 11. Enterprise Data Warehousing Performance & Scalability Accelerated data loads for DataStore Objects DataStore objects   Support of database partitioning by time characteristics enables faster access of the data Activation is changed from single lookups to mass lookup of active table  Performance gain for the improved activation (lab results)   Avg. 20 – 40% improvement, Max. improvement measured – 2.5x faster Varies by data profile (# inserts/updates/deletes) and database platform Runtime option “New, unique data records only”  omits lookups during activation  speeds up initial loads, e.g. requests which contain only new data New rule-type for Transformations: „Read from DataStore‟  Fast data lookup to DataStore objects in database and Near-Line Storage.  Lookup is performance optimized by using mass read once per data package instead of record by record.  Replaces custom ABAP code for lookups by efficient built-in lookup mechanism DBMS specific optimization (DB2 DPF)  Activation using database specific SQL commands on mass data  Improvement measured (lab results): factor 2 – 3 times faster compared to standard activation  See slide „IBM specific enhancements“ and „BW with support for Teradata  Remodeling for DataStore objects  © 2011 SAP AG.
