Where is the logical breakdown of ODSs? We have one standard SD InfoCube we are planning on using. Later, we will add FI, PP, MM and InfoCubes. What is the best way to architect this so that using the InfoCubes and ODSs do not affect performance?
For SD, there is also a need to drill down to the line item level if and when needed.
Before creating the Cubes and ODSs for SD, I would advise you to check the Business Content InfoCubes and ODSs provided by SAP. In most cases these cubes will be sufficient for the reporting. You might be able to use these cubes and ODSs by doing the necessary customization.
If you are not able to use these cubes, you may check the design approach SAP has used to create these cubes. You may notice that all of the cubes contain summary level data and that ODSs contain document level data. Then you may follow the same method.
