What is hot data?

Thursday, July 12th, 2018

Current data is the data relevant to the operations of application objects, needed in the day-to day-business transactions.

The application logic determines when current data turns historical by using its knowledge about the object’s life cycle. The application logic validates the conditions at the object level from a business point of view, based on the status, execution of existence checks, and verification of cross-object dependencies. Current data is stored in the current area.

Examples of current data:

  • Open FI items, items cleared only a few months ago
  • Undelivered purchase orders, sales documents of sales cycle that is still in progress
  • Documents for an ongoing project
  • IDocs that need to be processed.
