SAP’s Overall Data Warehousing Strategy

SAP HANA Data Warehousing summarizes SAP’s offering for highly flexible and agile Data Warehousing. It mainly consists of an application driven approach based on SAP BW powered by SAP HANA and in addition of  an SQL driven approach also based on SAP HANA and additional SAP tools like SAP Power Designer, SAP DW Foundation, SAP Information Steward etc. Of course both approaches can also be combined with each other.

HANA Data Warehousing: The HANADW

With this blog Thomas Zurek sheds some light into the direction that SAP is taking towards a unified offering for building a data warehouse on top of HANA.

The Wienerberger Story

The world’s largest producer of bricks and the European leader in clay roof tiles, Wienerberger’s business is characterized by strong seasonal fluctuations in demand.

New How To Guide available: How To…Realize Easy In-Cell Calculations in SAP BusinessObjects Analysis for Office

SAP BusinessObjects Analysis for Office can be used as an Excel planning front end (in conjunction with BW-IP or PAK). When planners change their plan data they do not only want to enter the absolute number in the systems. Sometimes they want to raise the value in a certain cell by say 10% or want to raise the existing value by a certain increment. As PAK and BW-IP expect absolute numbers the user has to calculate the number in a little side calculation. In this paper we show how a simple solution can be realized where the planner can enter a simply formula and apply this to one or several cells in the worksheet. This functionality is often referred to as ‘pocket calculation’.
