SAP Business Warehouse
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.
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#.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
