SAP® BW/4HANA®

SAP Business Warehouse

BW/4HANA

The heart of reporting in any SAP-centric system landscape.

Reliable data from a wide variety of sources can be provided with SAP BW so that business decisions can be made on a solid basis. SAP BW provides a compre­hensive view of the entire company data — regardless of whether SAP or non-SAP sources.

For visua­lization, numerous tools can be used — both SAP tools and third-party tools. These can be used to create attractive dashboards, pixel-perfect reports for printing, or Excel-based analyses.

Features

Exten­si­bility

By means of ABAP, SQL and UI5 an almost unlimited exten­si­bility for own solutions, calcu­la­tions and user inter­faces is available. Via APIs and web services, exten­sions can also be made in Java or C#.

Resource Management

Using process chains, the loading of SAP BW can be controlled and monitored granu­larly. This enables both data up-to-dateness and the conser­vation of source system resources.

Virtual modelling

SAP BW offers possi­bi­lities for virtual modeling up to the most extensive renun­ciation of persis­tence. With HANA, this is possible at high speed even with mass data and more complex logics, including real-time reporting.

Standard inter­faces

SAP BW can be connected to SAP systems (e.g. via RFC, ODP or HANA) and also non-SAP systems (e.g. via DBConnect or ODATA). Both background processing and real-time use are possible.

Cloud Integration

Whether it is the connection of cloud source systems or cloud-based reporting with SAC, SAP BW supports these scenarios. In addition, with the DataWare­house Cloud, SAP BW can also be supple­mented with a cloud solution for more agile reporting (e.g., self-service BI).

Any Frontends

SAP BW offers the possi­bility to connect different frontends and to use them for reports and analyses. These can be SAP frontends such as Analysis for Office or SAP Analytics Cloud, but also 3rd party tools such as Tableau.
