SAP BW/4HANA cockpit is a Web-based interface used for administration of a BW/4HANA system. In BW/4HANA cockpit under the Monitoring tab, you will find a tile named ‘Remodeling Requests’. Remodeling is done when there is any structural change made in ADSO. It is generally done in RSMONITOR, but this version enables us to do the same without the GUI use. It enables a new modeling approach (Field / Info object-based modeling).
Some of the benefits of remodeling in the version BW4HANA 2.0 are,
- It helps in enhancing or changing the data models without reloading.
- It takes low remodeling effort and easy to use.
- It has high productivity.
