this week, SAP has released the new SAP NetWeaver BW Near-Line Storage rapid-deployment solution, which includes SAP Sybase IQ. This rapid-deployment solution has an implementation duration of 12 weeks only!
The SAP NetWeaver BW Near-Line Storage rapid-deployment solution provides a complete data aging solution that enables transparent access to the archived data for reporting, and query capabilities. The near-line storage will secure write-protected data, partitioned by age and/or time, therefore resulting in a leaner, low-cost, more easily maintainable online SAP NetWeaver BW application. It can be coupled with SAP HANA implementations to control SAP HANA infrastructure costs. A well-defined data aging strategy ensures a regular archiving of historical data, which is still available for online reporting as needed.
The solution can be implemented within 12 weeks. The quick and riskless implementation is supported by the following main components of this rapid-deployment solution:
- Implementation of a data aging strategy – A document that guides through the process of setting up a data aging strategy, with an example of a data aging strategy for sample info cubes in SAP NetWeaver BW
- SAP Sybase IQ general configuration – A configuration guide and templates for a fast and easier installation and configuration of SAP Sybase IQ software
- Near-line storage configuration – A step-by-step guide that supports through the process of configuring the SAP NetWeaver BW application for near-line storage with SAP Sybase IQ.
Go live in weeks: 12 weeks
