HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Business Warehouse components

SAP R/3 supports two main Business Warehouse components, InfoPackages and Process Chains.

An InfoPackage is the entry point for the loading process from a specific InfoSource (a logical container of data source, generically named InfoObject). Technically, an InfoPackage is an SAP R/3 job whose aim is to load data. Like any other SAP R/3 job, it contains job-pecific parameters such as start time, and dependencies.

A Process Chain is a complex chain of different processes and their relationships. The processes within a process chain are not limited to data load processes, or InfoPackages, but also include:
  • Attribute/Hierarchy Change run
  • Aggregate rollup
  • ABAP program
  • Another process chain
  • Customer build process
