  • 12. CompositeProvider - Overview • The CompositeProvider is a new InfoProvider type introduced with SAP NetWeaver BW 7.30 to join data in BW. • Operations are executed in SAP HANA and not the application server • It offers the possibility to combine InfoProvider via different join types:* INNER JOIN Table A Table B OUTER JOIN Table A Table B UNION Table A Table B *An INNER JOIN is always faster – but this kind of referential integrity may not always be given. If the performance degeneration due to the OUTER JOIN is too big, it might be worth the effort to model referential integrity during staging. © 2012 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 12
  • 13. CompositeProvider - Use Cases 1. BW Workspaces combine central BW data with uploaded local data via Workspace Designer. 2. Rapid-Prototype Models combine AnalyticIndexes (created in APD or published SAP HANA Models). This is done in the transaction RSLIMO. 3. JOINs between InfoProvider (this Session) BW InfoProvider can be combined using the JOIN operation This is done in transaction RSLIMOBW. © 2012 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 13
