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.

      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?
