How to enhance the Focused Build Post-Cutover Activities


The Focused Build standalone extension 'Cutover Checks and Post Cutover Activities' was introduced several years ago. Besides the Cutover Checks it also provides a set of activities to ensure seamless synchronization of changes between implementation and corresponding maintenance landscapes. Users can create and import Transports of Copies (ToCs) for each system within the maintenance landscape directly from the cutover system.

ST-OST SP13 has brought improvements to these activities. Nonetheless, it can still happen that an activity does not meet your requirements fully or lacks a particular feature. In such situations, users can easily develop and integrate their own activities to enhance or replace the existing ones.

Understanding SAP HANA Systems: Revolutionizing Data Management

In today's fast-paced digital landscape, businesses require robust data management systems to handle the vast amounts of data generated every second. SAP HANA, a high-performance in-memory database developed by SAP SE, has emerged as a game-changer in this domain. This article delves into the core aspects of SAP HANA systems, highlighting their features, benefits, and the impact they have on modern enterprises.

What is SAP HANA?

SAP HANA (High-Performance Analytic Appliance) is an in-memory, column-oriented, relational database management system designed to handle both high transaction rates and complex query processing. Unlike traditional databases that rely on disk storage, SAP HANA stores data in RAM, allowing for incredibly fast data retrieval and processing. This architecture significantly accelerates analytics and transactional processing, making real-time data access a reality.

Extracting Data from S4HANA ODP to SAP Datasphere

An ODP (Operational Data Provisioning)-enabled data source is a data extraction mechanism that uses the ODP framework to allow the transfer of data between systems. It leverages the ODP infrastructure to manage the data extraction process efficiently, ensuring that data is consistently and reliably transferred from the source system to the target system.

To consume S4HANA data to SAP Datasphere via ODP, we need a datasource that is ODP enabled, either we can use some standard datasources like (e.g. 2LIS_11_VAHDR - Sales Document Header Data, 2LIS_11_VAITM - Sales Document Item Data) or we can also create a custom datasource either by using a view or table or some custom CDS view.

Unleashing the Power of Custom Widgets in SAP Analytics Cloud

In today's world where data is crucial, it's really important to have analytics solutions that fit our business needs perfectly. With SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC), we can create custom analytical applications that are just right for our needs. One cool thing we can do with SAC is develop custom widgets. These widgets help us add more functions to SAC beyond what it already offers. In this blog post, I'm excited to talk about my experience making a custom SAC widget using a JSON file.


  1. Proficiency in JavaScript and JSON: Custom widgets in SAC are developed using JavaScript and defined using JSON files. Ensure that you have a good understanding of these languages and their syntax.

Syniti RDG provides a simplified design to create Multi Value Validation and Derivation Rules

Syniti RDG is an SAP-endorsed application on the Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) to facilitate MDG implementation with intuitive UI and process automation. RDG automates many of the technical configuration steps that are required to implement SAP MDG and it offers a user-friendly interface to be more relatable to business users.

◉ A multi-value check rule is for validating multiple attribute values against a logical condition.
◉ A multi value derivation rule is to derive multiple attributes values based on a logical condition.

The below example is used to create Multi value validation to be triggered for a specific Change Request Type to validate attribute values of Entity ‘BP_CENTRL’ of data model ‘BP’.
