Convert from Lag Time to Real Time

Are you ready to radically alter the way your business accesses crucial data? If so, then it’s time to ramp up your data warehouse performance with the help of in-memory computing.

Resting squarely on the shoulders of analytics managers is the expectation to deliver greater insight in less time at lower TCO. Using SAP BW on SAP HANA is one of the best ways for an analytics manager to make this happen.

Why?  Because it leverages in-memory computing to help your business access, process, and deliver huge amounts of data in real time. And by simplifying data modeling, it improves system performance and lowers IT costs.

But what’s the best implementation and deployment strategy that can help your company make the most out of its data? A blog from Tom Kurtz outlines two approaches:

  1. Upgrade and migrate an existing installation of SAP BW:
    • Reap the greatest ROI by upgrading your current SAP BW application and then migrating to the SAP HANA platform.
    • Understand that this approach works best for database production systems that consistently process large or complex data volumes.
    • Be aware that a full upgrade requires a longer cycle time and may mean that you wait longer to recoup costs.
  2. Install a parallel landscape of the latest version of SAP BW:
    • Take the option to complete just a partial transport of specific functional areas.
    • Gain immediate value from in-memory solutions without a total upgrade.
    • Be aware that this could result in parallel production systems.
