Building and Using a Live Data Connection
The process for building and using a live data connection with the APOS Live Data Gateway is simple, straight-forward, and aligned with the process for building and using a SAP HANA live data connection. However, SAP HANA is not required.

APOS Views – Semantic Layer for Live Data Gateway
An APOS View is a semantic layer that identifies measures and dimensions for non-OLAP data sources, as such data sources do not natively indicate them. APOS Views are simple for DBAs or Analysts to build and shield end users from the need to write SQL, know how to join database tables, or understand complex data structures.
