2.1 Concepts in SAP BW∕4HANA The key areas of SAP BW∕4HANA, Edition for SAP HANA are data
modeling, data procurement, analysis , together with agile access to information via BW Workspaces.
Data Modeling Comprehensive, meaningful data analyses are only possible if the data that is mainly in
different formats and sources is bundled into a query and integrated. Enterprise data is collected
centrally in the SAP BW∕4HANA Enterprise Data Warehouse. Technical cleanup steps are then
performed using transformations, and business rules are applied in order to consolidate the data for
evaluations. InfoProvider are provided for data storage purposes. Depending on the individual
requirements, data can be stored in these InfoProviders in different degrees of granularity in various
layers of the data warehouse architecture. The scalable layer architecture (LSA++) helps you to design
and implement various layers in the SAP BW∕4HANA system for data provision, Corporate Memory, data
distribution and data analysis. InfoProviders are normally made up of InfoObjects. InfoObjects are the
smallest (metadata) units in SAP BW∕4HANA. Using InfoObjects, information is mapped in a structured
form. This is required for building data stores. To ensure metadata consistency, you need to use
identical InfoObjects to define the data stores in the different layers. You also have the option of
modeling objects directly from fields however, in cases where you need rapid and agile data integration.
You can create logical views on the physical data stores in the form of InfoProviders in order to provide
data from different data stores for a common evaluation. You can use CompositeProvides to merge data
from BW InfoProviders with data from SAP HANA views. You can use Open ODS views to integrate data
sources into SAP BW∕4HANA step-by-step, from virtual consumption through to physical integration.
Data Acquisition SAP BW∕4HANA provides flexible options for data integration. Various interfaces make
it possible to connect sources to SAP BW∕4HANA. The connection between a source, a SAP system or a
database for example, and SAP BW∕4HANA is configured in a source system. For the process of physical
data procurement - also known as Extraction, Transformation and Loading (ETL) - you need a DataSource
in SAP BW∕4HANA. This delivers the 8 P U B L I C SAP BW/4HANA Overview metadata description of the
source data and is used for data extraction from a source system and transferal of the data to the SAP
BW∕4HANA. The target of the loading process is the physical data stores in SAP BW∕4HANA
(InfoProvider). The selections and parameters for data transfer and loading to an InfoProvider are
performed in a data transfer process. To consolidate, clean up and integrate the data, a data transfer
process uses transformations between source and target. Transformations use transformation rules to
convert the fields in a source to the format of the target. Analysis The SAP BW∕4HANA system has a
number of analysis and navigation functions for formatting and evaluating a company’s data. These
allow the user to formulate individual requests on the basis of multidimensionally modeled datasets
(InfoProviders). Users can then view and evaluate this data from various perspectives at runtime. Once
you have consolidated your business data, stored it in suitable InfoProviders and defined logical views
on it if required, , you can start evaluating the data. You can analyze the operative data on the basis of
the historical data according to business criteria. The Analytic Manager in the SAP BW∕4HANA system
provides extensive analytic functions and services. Analyzing data provides valuable information for your
company's decision makers. ● SAP BW∕4HANA uses OLAP technology to analyze data stored in the Data
Warehouse. Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) uses SAP BW∕4HANA as a Decision Support System
allowing decision makers to analyze multidimensionally modeled data quickly and interactively in line
with business management needs. ● The basis for the analysis in SAP BW∕4HANA is the analytic query.
This forms the formal definition of a multidimensional query. Agile Access to Information in the Data
Warehouse Creating ad hoc scenarios is supported in SAP BW∕4HANA by BW Workspaces. A BW
workspace is an area where new models can be created based on central data from the SAP BW∕4HANA
system and local data. Workspaces can be managed and controlled by a central IT department and used
by local special departments. This means you can quickly adjust to new and changing requirements.
