In one of my previous blogs I outlined some of the reason why our customers should take a look at SAP Data Warehouse Cloud either in form of a standalone data warehouse solution, or in combination with SAP BW / SAP BW/4HANA or SAP HANA SQL DWH.
There also have been additional blogs here in the community outlining similar scenarios, so perhaps you take a look at those to also get an “external” perspective on the different scenarios:
What I would like to share here in the next couple of days is a step by step guidance on the integration of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud in combination with a SAP BW 7.5 environment as well as a SAP BW/4HANA environment with the upcoming model transfer integration. We will take a look at the required components and steps to install and configure the scenario, as well as the details in regards to the supported elements from your existing SAP BW assets and how you can leverage those in SAP Data Warehouse Cloud.
SAP Data Warehouse cloud & SAP BW/4HANA – Installation & Configuration (Part 4)
SAP Data Warehouse cloud & SAP BW/4HANA – Using BW Models in SAP Data Warehouse Cloud (Part 5)
We will talk more about the Installation and Configuration for the integration of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and SAP BW 7.5 in the next blog, but here are already the required components for the integration:
- SAP Data Warehouse Cloud – You can signup for a trial here.
- SAP Data Provisioning Agent
- You can find the installation guide here: DP Agent Installation & Configuration
- Your SAP BW environment
So in case you want to follow the steps along, perhaps sign up for a trial and get a system ready where we can install the DP Agent.
In the next steps we will go through the configuration of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud with BW 7.5 and discuss the different connectivity options.
