Multiprovider best practice for BOBJ Explorer

To all,

Some companies use only multiproviders (not infocubes) as the source for building infospaces in BOBJ Explorer. They will build a multiprovider with only 1 infocube and use it for BOBJ Explorer. They will not use infocubes when building infospaces in BOBJ Explorer.

Is this best practice...

All replies are appreciated.

Thanks,

JZMAN

It is best practice to use MP between your actual data layer and reporting layer.

Remember MultiProvider is simple a logical representation of the data, not physical. And its dimensions are simply groupings of fields, where cube level is something completely different.
As well as it is future-proven technique! What if in future there will be a need to connect one more cube or DSO?
