NetWeaver BW Running on Classical DB

Typical Challenges
Business User Dissatisfaction Real-Time Data Access Planning Performance Loading Performance Remodeling Effort
Long wait times, slow reporting, not optimal to meet needs of business users Traditional latency issues in getting timely information Planning speed slow due to bottleneck of reading & writing data to/from a classical database Challenging loading windows; loading and consolidation of data not optimal Complex and difficult to apply structural changes quickly enough to meet business user requests Requires management of database like indexes, aggregates and DBA operations as well as management of BWA High IT workloads, restricted self-service capabilities, complex modeling; IT becomes the bottleneck 6

What Is The Value Proposition Of SAP NetWeaver BW Powered by SAP HANA (Beyond Speed)?
Leaner data models avoid layers modelled for performance boosting
Plan and Report at a level of granularity not possible before like SKU level instead of Store level Being more agile to business processes changes quickly remodel your data flow according to your business needs BW Workspaces Combine spreadsheets with BW data on the fly, without IT help Use sophisticated analytics using BI 4.x that was not possible before BW worked on HANA like Lumira, Predictive Analytics, Design Studio Use BPC on HANA and PAK for real time planning on Hana Use Hana as an analytics platform across business suite (SHAF), BW on HANA and Data marts on HANA to combine strategic data with operational data

Customer Value of BW powered by SAP HANA

1. Supercharged BW with Dramatically Improved Performance

Business: Improved decision making, faster reporting, and the most up-to-date information IT: Faster data loading and decreased data latency

2. Simplified Administration and Streamlined Landscape

Business: Reporting requests executed faster and minimal IT involvement IT: Reduced administration and lower TCO

3. Unlock The Power of Your Data Across The Enterprise

Business: Self-service access to all information at the most granular level

IT: Simplified IT workload with easy access to operational data marts

4. Preserve Your BW Investment without Disruption

Business: Minimal training impact to business users and administrators IT: Migration without disruption of your BW application

Myth Busters on BW on HANA Costs and Value

What Well Cover

We already have SAP BWA ? Suite on HANA will make BW redundant BW on HANA is very expensive


Why Move To SAP NetWeaver BW Powered by SAP HANA If We Have the SAP BW Accelerator?

BWA is redundant if BW on Hana is used Query acceleration in BW on Hana is comparable or better than BWA Unlike BWA, there is no need in BW on Hana to build index after a data load. All data is immediately available for reporting after load and DSO activation BWA accelerates reports only on pre-selected infoproviders , where as BW on Hana accelerates all reports on BW BW on Hana has significantly better performance on load performance, which BWA does not help with Please check with your HW partner and SAP Account executive to see how you can protect some of the BWA investments in HW and Licenses

Do We Need BW Powered by SAP HANA If We Also Have Business Suite On SAP HANA ?
SAP HANA Analytics Foundation
Getting real-time analytics back to where it belongs: Into the operational system! Operational reporting: Analytics directly on the original transactional data Real-time: Zero latency of data Lightweight modeling and consumption: Modeling and access based on open standards (SQL, MDX, ODATA) including SAP Business Objects clients Extensible: Easily extend SAPs model Uniform: All models across SAP Business Suite are built according to the same guidelines. Deployment model: Models come as part of the SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA. Model reuse in analytical applications: Analytical models will be used to build new analytical applications for the Business Suite powered by SAP HANA

SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse

Performing strategic and tactical reporting in an Enterprise Data Warehouse: Strategic and Tactical: Analytical scenarios with complex logic, sophisticated KPIs, benchmarking Integration, Harmonization, Cross-System Consistency of enterprise systems incl. third party data Consumption through SAP Business Objects BI clients and certified 3rd party clients Planning: modeled, and on aggregated levels. Preconfigured content, extensible by customers Persistence of historical data: long time-series, compliance, data lifecycle (incl. archiving)
Governance: Providing a mature environment for Enterprise Data Warehousing (EDW) Full-blown analytical suite: including e.g. hierarchy processing or complex analytical calculations. 25

ROI driven migration approach: Illustrative Scenarios

Small Scale of Business -> Medium Large


a. Old installation that needs significant clean up b. Need for process/data re-design and infra revamp c. Poor BW adoption

Big Bang

a. Need fast ROI b. Need coverage of all scenarios instead of piecemeal/selected scenarios c. Willing to bear downtime instead of spending for a parallel installation

Parallel Deployment

a. Old, large , mature installation b. High user base, minimal tolerance for prod downtime c. BW adoption is high 45

What Should We Do About Old Data In SAP NetWeaver BW?

Before Migration, We suggest that some data clean up should be done See recommendations in cook book Make use of multi-temperature storage concept for BW Hot data, frequently used for read/write, in RAM Warm data, infrequently used, in Disk Cold data, sporadically used, in NLS SAP delivered Sybase IQ NLS solution is now available for BW 7.3 SP09. This solutions does not need any third party solution or middleware
