    Better to use SAP-BW hierarchies, or recreate them in Qlik?

    Simon Hogg

      Pretty much as the title suggests.  Is it better to use the hierarchies defined in SAP-BW, or to recreate the same hierarchies in Qlik?

       

      E.g. we divide the world into regions (consisting of countries).  If I want to select Europe, is it better to create a field in Qlik called "Region" and map the countries into it, or to use the SAP-BW hierarchies to select the regions?

       

      My thought is the Qlik mapping would be very much easier to maintain, but we would have duplication of hierarchy maintenance so I'd be happy to hear a second opinion.
