SAP Business Warehouse (BW) continues to serve as a powerful data warehouse to consolidate data, harmonize master data and provide flexible reporting scenarios. Introducing SAP HANA as database underneath SAP BW was a major breakthrough in various core areas for data warehousing. With the combination of a rich data warehousing application and a fast in-memory database, we’ve seen architectural simplification, performance improvements and new modelling experiences.
The course will introduce the renewed concepts and possibilities when SAP BW is powered by SAP HANA. We’ll introduce the major guiding points and semantics of a data warehouse and demonstrate them in a business scenario, directly in the system. You will learn and experience the latest developments, with SAP BW 7.4 powered by SAP HANA, as well as opportunities for real-time data integration and agile data modelling. We will demonstrate what it means to consume the data via a data warehouse and show you how SAP HANA helps to speed up data analysis. We’ll also introduce the planning capabilities based on SAP BW, which is a unique combination of reporting and planning on the same platform.
The registration, learning content, final exam, and the Record of Achievement are free of charge.
Demonstrations shown in course are based on:
You will have the opportunity to create your own free SAP HANA cloud instance for 30 days (not for production usage). This will be available on the SAP HANA Marketplace http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-41566 (AS ABAP incl. BW 7.4 SP 8 on SAP HANA 1.0 SP8). There will also be an additional offering which uses Amazon Web Services and is charged on an hourly basis. The course consists of an SAP BW powered by SAP HANA and an SAP BusinessObjects installation.
