What is SAP BW/4HANA?
SAP BW/4HANA is a data warehouse application package designed as an on-premise warehouse variant for the SAP Business Technology Platform. With SAP BW/4HANA, all the data in the entire company can be prepared for a consistent view across all departments.
With the Business Warehouse (BW), data analysis can be accelerated by obtaining data from a data warehouse (DW). This allows large amounts of data to be processed in real time.
SAP Business Warehouse continues to be a powerful data warehouse tool for consolidating master data, and provides various flexible reporting options. With SAP HANA as the database within the BW system, a combination of DW functions and a fast in-memory database can be used to generate improvements in performance and exceptional modelling capabilities.
The HANA in-memory database is much faster than other common databases such as Oracle and SQL Server, which means that the DW works significantly faster.
How does SAP BW/4HANA work?
1. Data integration: data from a wide variety of sources can be integrated into SAP BW in many different ways.
2. Data management: simple and clear provision of all necessary data
Simplified design principles and a wide range of platform interfaces make it easy to integrate the required data and make it available for evaluation at an early stage. The traditional data warehouse layers (e.g. persistent data marts with complex transformation logics) are available as usual. For ad-hoc queries however, the data can already be taken and used from the integration layer.
This is where the powerful data modelling capabilities of SAP HANA come into play. The SAP BW automatically generates HANA views for each data model, which can be combined with each other (and with external data sources) as you see fit. Thereafter, further data modelling can be implemented with the HANA graphical interface or alternatively with standard SQL, other languages (e.g. R. Python) or SQL-based front-end tools.
All known and mature SAP BW functions for data warehouse operation (including scheduling, monitoring, delta management and authorisations) are of course still available in parallel.
3. Access to information: from all departments and for all employees
Employees in each department have access to user-friendly BI and data mining tools.mining tools to meet their information needs quickly and in a well-founded manner. information needs:
