can anyone help me about the better connection modality between Tableau and SAP BW/4HANA?
In particular, what is available bertween BICS and INA, SAP connection protocol for BW/4HANA?
Access for SAP front ends: BICS (BI Consumer Services) is the data access protocol for BW/4HANA front-end tools. With the native BICS interface access, SAP delivers a proprietary means of connecting to BW/4HANA content. BICS is built on native API calls and allows BW/4HANA users to reuse their BW/4HANA query definitions. BICS offers better query performance using the native API as well as the consumption of OLAP metadata (e.g. hierarchies and variables) in BW/4HANA. Also, SAP offers INA, a new proprietary connection protocol for its own cloud front ends.
Thank you very much for your help!
