We’re announcing the availability of the SAP SQL Data Warehouse 2.5 trial edition available since April 2020, which supports the usage of SAP HANA Full-Use Enterprise Edition 2.0 SPS04, Rev. 46 (XSA), SAP HANA Data Warehousing Foundation 2.0 and SAP PowerDesigner 16.6 including the advanced analytics capabilities like Text-Analysis, Spatial and Graph.
The SAP SQL Data Warehouse trial includes the capabilities to model, implement, build and run a SAP SQL Data Warehouse solution in a Cloud based environment.
Data Warehouse Systems today struggle with two major issues: Business requires more connected, direct accessible data and IT requires more cloud and architecture flexibility.
The SAP SQL Data Warehouse solution is positioned to solve both of those challenges by accessing artifacts from remote systems/container and/or loading and processing of clean data into Data Warehouse systems to drive and support decisions while offering cloud freedom for data systems, applications, and system development.
SAP SQL Data Warehouse trial
SAP SQL Data Warehouse trial is a complete pre-configured deployment of the SAP SQL Data Warehouse solution for trial and evaluation purposes on Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
It is available to spin-up your own instance via the SAP Cloud Appliance Library.
With the trial edition, SAP is providing the option to take look at all features of the installed products (SAP HANA Standard Edition (XSA), SAP HANA Data Warehousing Foundation and SAP Enterprise Architecture Designer), for the duration of 30 days.
We do not charge you for the usage of SAP SQL Data Warehouse trial. You only need to cover the cloud provider expenses for using their infrastructure.
