    Administrator Workbench (RSA1)

    PurposeThe Administrator Workbench is the tool for controlling, monitoring, and maintaining all of the processes connected with data staging and processing in the Business Information Warehouse.

    IntegrationThe data for the SAP Business Information Warehouse that has been staged with the help of the Administrator Workbench can be evaluated and presented with the Business Explorer reporting tool.FunctionsThe Administrator Workbench encompasses the following functional areas: Metadata Repository Installing Business Content Modeling Administration Reporting Agent Documents Translating Texts for BW Objects

    What is an InfoObject ?The various OLTP data models are unified for BW Business objects / table fields become InfoObjectsInfoObject 0COSTCENTERInfoObjects are unique across application components !Table of cost centers Table of employees

    Types of InfoObjects Characteristics: evaluation groups like Cost Center, Product group, MaterialHave discrete values stored in their master data tables (e.g. the characteristic Region has the values North, South, ... )Special types of characteristics:Time characteristics like Fiscal period, Calendar yearUnit characteristics which comprise currencies and units of measure like Local currencyKey figures: continuously valued numerical fields like amounts and quantities (e.g.: Revenue and Sales quantity)

    SAP AG 2004, Business Information Warehouse / *

    Master Data tables for CharacteristicsInformation about characteristics is stored in Master Data Tables:Attribute TablesDependent attributes of a characteristic can be stored in an Attribute Table for the characteristic. Text TablesTextual descriptions of a characteristic are stored in a separate text table. External Hierarchy TablesHierarchies of characteristics or attributes may be stored in separate hierarchy tables.

    InfoProviderInfoProviders are the objects or views relevant to reporting. All BW objects for which queries in SAP BW can be created or executed are InfoProviders.Examples for InfoProviders are: InfoCubes ODS Objects MultiProviders InfoObjects

    QueriesA query is a collection of characteristics and key figures (InfoObjects) for the analysis of the data of an InfoProvider.

    A query always refers exactly to one InfoProvider, whereas you can define as many queries as you like for each InfoProvider.
