38 Sharing Enterprise Data Across Applications

This scenario demonstrates how to make hierarchical changes and maintain hierarchical synchronization across multiple external applications. The steps walk you through adding a new node to a single dimension hierarchy and maintaining the change in another application. You can repeat the steps for additional dimensional hierarchies. Similar steps can also be used for other hierarchy and property changes.

Suppose your General Ledger application stores companies in company segments and your Planning application stores companies in an Entity dimension. To add a new company to both applications the Administrator needs to create a maintenance view with both applications and the user can add nodes to both applications.
