The New #BW4HANA Cockpit
Here is a short video (2:47 min) showing the new BW/4HANA cockpit as it has been shipped with 1.0 SP8 on 26 Mar 2018. It serves as the new entry point for the BW/4 admin, meaning that you can access monitors and related dashboards, scheduler, modeling editors etc. It is based on the Fiori Launchpad paradigm and technology. Consequently, it can easily be personalised to your specific needs, e.g. by adding a tile showing the logs of “your” process chains. It works on traditional laptops, smartphones or – as in the video – on a giant touchscreen. It can be considered as replacing the admin workbench (RSA1).
We will provide more detailed videos on the capabilities of the BW/4HANA cockpit soon. More on BW/4HANA 1.0 SP8 can be found in this slide deck.

Thanks! Would the cockpit be a mandatory component for BW/4 HANA or could the Fiori setup be deferred to a later stage?
No. It's not mandatory.
we already have installed SP08, where to start the Cockpit? Needs some Services?
You can refer help document to setup this:
see the following Document how to activate the BW/4 Cockpit - SAP First Guidance – complete functional scope (CFS) for SAP BW/4HANA which also needs the Update to SAP_UI 7.52

can we include BW/4HANA Cocpit into central Fiori Frontend server?
It would be interesting to know whether this cockpit could be possible to use instead of SAP Fiori Launchpad (for business users) or merge these two launchpad’s to a single one?
Pleasee help me !!! Today we don’t have the newest version of Support package , if we upgrade to SP08 then we will get the BW4hana admin cockpit, but if I choose keep using RSA1 and RSPC , is that available ? or not should migrate all the pchains to the new way using cockpit tool?
