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.
This presentation introduces the SAP DW Strategy, its components and the roadmap.
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 unofficial working title is the HANA DW. The blog is divided into 3 sections, each addressing the most pressing questions from customers who have already seen flavours of this.
