Core Data Service (CDS) along with Annotations are some of the innovations which would stay and evolve with S/4HANA. OData Services and Netweaver Gateway is another pillar. Do you know how to Create Smart Business KPI & Consume CDS Views in the KPIs with the help of OData Service?
In short we will use Smart Business Service for Creating KPI & Tiles and Consume CDS View directly with the help of OData Service.
Part 1 – Create Smart Business KPI and Tiles
Create an Analytical App to analyze the number of Rejections in Sales Document Item Level for a Particular Year entered by the User which would be grouped based on Customers and Periods (months) as shown below.
In addition, when the User clicks on a Particular Column it should Navigate to the Detail of all the Documents Line Item on the basis of that Customer as demonstrated below.
Detailed View Should be displayed in Tabular Format.
Let us refresh some of the theories which we covered in earlier tutorials.
For KPI we must have Measures and Dimensions in CDS View.
Measure: A Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is a measurable value that demonstrates how effectively a company is achieving key business objectives. In our example, the Number of Rejection is a Measure.
Dimensions: It is an Aspect on which we want to get the Measure Value. In our example, we want it on the basis of Customer, Year and Month Wise. These three parameters are our Dimensions.
1. Create CDS View
Now we will Create CDS Basic View to fetch the required fields from VBAK as Header Sales Document table and VBAP as Sales Document Line Item table and TVAGT to Fetch the Description of Rejection Code.
2. Get Number of Rejection Count on the basis of Customer, Month and Year
3. Combine both the CDS View to Create Analytics Cube and Composite Virtual Data Model (VDM) View
