SAP BW/4HANA Changes Everything

SAP BW4HANA, combined with SAP S/4HANA and the SAP HANA platform, delivers traditional data warehousing, such as operational reporting and historical analysis, and is also designed for the future – logical data warehouse, Internet of Things, and data lakes.

SAP BW4HANA combines with SAP S/4HANA to meet your operational and historical analytics needs using the same data as your applications, so you are always using fresh data.

With a logical data warehouse approach that leverages smart data integration, SAP BW/4HANA eliminates duplication and expensive data movement to connect the data silos in your organization. All data sources can be connected, including SAP and non-SAP data sources.

Leveraging the SAP HANA platform’s streaming analytics, SAP BW4HANA can handle the volume and velocity from the Internet of Things. SAP BW/4HANA, with the enriched interactive analytics of SAP HANA Vora®, delivers an advanced data lake solution for precision decision-making.


Accelerates open data warehousing development

Simple Object Model

SAP BW4HANA couples a modern approach to data modeling with a dramatically simplified set of data warehouse objects and simplified governance to enable agile data warehouse development, delivering business insights in real time. Business applications can leverage a pre-built data warehouse or an SQL-based development environment that works seamlessly with other SQL-based solutions to deliver real-time results.


Open SQL Support

You can easily expose SAP BW4HANA models as native SAP HANA views. Also you can build your own SAP HANA models on top of the SAP BW/4HANA models. You have the option of working with SAP HANA in BW mode or in native SQL mode, or you can switch back and forth between the two.


Offers a unique, modern interface

This solution delivers a usercentric, visually simplified interface. This allows to improve productivity of users, designers, and administrators, therefore enabling faster solution development to improve business agility. The interface is seamless with SAP HANA on premise, and Web-based for cloud deployments.
