Information Design Tool (IDT)

Within the information design tool (IDT), you can create a relational connection to an SAP HANA view or table using JDBC or ODBC drivers, and build a universe using this connection to provide access via other client tools such as Dashboards and Web Intelligence. Alternatively, you can use IDT to create a relational connection directly in the BI platform repository, where it can be used to connect to SAP HANA without a universe for client tools such as Crystal Reports for Enterprise.
