SAP BW Health Check - system optimization for maximum performance

What exactly does this term mean and why is it so important to carry out an SAP BW Health Check? These and other questions are answered here.

What is an SAP BW Health Check?

SAP BW systems are subject to a certain amount of degeneration over time, which can have a negative impact on performance and efficiency. A regular SAP BW Health Check is therefore essential to identify and resolve potential problems at an early stage. This process makes it possible to uncover bottlenecks in system performance, inefficient data models, unused resources and other weaknesses.

By carrying out a health check, companies can ensure that their SAP BW system is functioning optimally, data quality is high and business processes are running smoothly. Ultimately, a regular health check helps to improve the overall efficiency of the SAP BW environment in terms of the return on investment.

The SAP BW Health Check focuses on two main areas:

1. Housekeeping:

The current utilization in terms of storage space and resources is reviewed. Data that is no longer required is identified in order to reduce storage space and optimize system resources.

2. Data loading and query runtimes, data modeling and design:

The efficiency of the data models in terms of query performance and data processing is analyzed. In addition, statistics on data volumes, data loading times and query runtimes are examined in order to make concrete optimization suggestions that can improve the performance of the SAP BW system.
