1、 InfoProviders are objects for which you can create and execute queries in SAP BW. These include
objects that physically store data – the data targets, such as InfoCubes, operational data store objects
(ODS objects), and InfoObjects (characteristics with attributes or texts). They also include objects
that do not contain any actual data, such as, InfoSets, RemoteCubes and MultiProviders.
InfoProviders are the objects or views relevant to reporting.
2、 Data targets are SAP BW objects that have their own data store (which physically contains data).
These objects include InfoCubes, ODS objects and InfoObjects (characteristics with attributes or
texts). The system supplies data targets with data from the source systems using a load process (or by
writing directly into the tables for transactional object types).
