The SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW) component has been the backbone of the enterprise data warehouse – driving analytics for SAP customers over the last decade. Now, thanks to the power of the SAP HANA platform, you can supercharge your enterprise data warehouse environment. When powered by SAP HANA, SAP NetWeaver BW can drive analytics within your organization, bringing more speed and greater adoption to your users.

  • There is an overall ‘core’ assessment that can be positioned that includes all of the relative activities based on the collateral we have in the portfolio. This should be able to be written on one BOM. The BW functional upgrade was typically considered ‘optional’ for customers coming from BW3.5 to BW7.0 but some functional aspects are required to run BW on HANA so we have pulled those out and made them not optional. This includes the unicode conversion, BW authorizations and BW in-memory conversion analysis. We will assess the MD effort and cost associated with these activities during the core assessment and then plan the delivery build. If the customer wants to do additional functional work that is still an option. The core assessment offering is required for all BW on HANA opportunities regardless of the current BW scenario.

  • AgendaWhat do I need to consider when deciding on options? Business | Functional | Technical© 2011 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 16
  • What Do I Need to Consider When Deciding on Options?Where Do We Go from Here? Options exist, but how do you determine which path to take? Are there variables to consider within the paths? From here there are many more details that should be examined. For simplicity, these details have been summarized into three high level categories, but others may come up during the next level of discussions. Business Considerations Functional Considerations Technical Considerations© 2011 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 17
  • What Do I Need to Consider When Deciding on Options?Business Considerations Drivers What are the drivers for the HANA migration? What are the KPIs and desired outcomes? Do you have any use cases requiring immediate HANA Project Duration vs. acceleration? Would immediate acceleration of those Live Use Case use cases offset a potentially longer overall project? Do you have a sense of how many subject areas can Subject Areas take advantage of in-memory? Do you have multiple BW landscapes you would like System Consolidation to consolidate? Is the current inclination toward a big bang deployment HANA Impact or an iterative roll-out of new, improved functionality?© 2011 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 18
  • What Should Customers Consider When Deciding?Functional Considerations Is the current BW configuration meeting the business needs, or is there a desire for redesign? Are your currently challenged to meet load windows and / or is current data latency impacting the business? What version of BW do you have deployed currently? How much BW configuration do you currently have deployed to users? What is your growth plan? Are you using BCS, BPS, Integrated Planning or BPC on your BW system? What are the facilities to / restrictions on migrating data via the sidecar scenario? Are you currently utilizing the 7.x dataflows and/or 7.x security?© 2011 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 19
  • What Do I Need to Consider When Deciding on Options?Technical Considerations How much data are you managing in your current BW landscape? Are you currently archiving in ECC? Does ECC contain all the relevant history you require in BW? What is your current system support plan? What is your ability to support multiple BW landscapes? What reporting tools are currently deployed? How do users access data in the BW system? What is your internal team’s capabilities and bandwidth to support the project activities?© 2011 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 20
  • What Do I Need to Consider When Deciding on Options?SAP HANA Predefined Planning Assessment For any BW on HANA deployment, effective planning is key. Consider starting the process with a planning assessment SAP HANA Predefined Planning Assessment from SAP Consulting can help get you started© 2011 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 21
  • AgendaHow have other companies decided what to do?© 2011 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 22
  • How Have Other Companies Decided What To Do?Example #1 – Full Upgrade and Migrate Why did they choose BW on HANA? How did they decide which option? Opportunity to Re-Architect Faster reporting Provided an opportunity to remove layers (e.g. reporting) and flatten the architecture, which Faster data loading provided support and cost benefits Phased parallel landscape approach would delay Lower TCO realization of full benefits Reduced maintenance costs Data Considerations Reduced development costs Current BW system contained large amounts of data Phase parallel landscape approach would have taken too long to meet business needs Which option did they choose? Support Considerations Upgrade & migrate existing BW landscape Challenges with supporting data feeds from numerous systems into two BW landscapes Cost of additional hardware and support requirements for two BW landscapes© 2011 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 23
  • How Have Other Companies Decided What To Do?Example #2 – Parallel Landscape Why did they choose BW on HANA? How did they decide which option? Subject Areas Faster reporting Recognized that certain subject areas were most Increased end-user self-sufficiency important to in-memory capabilities Completed prioritization analysis to determine Faster data loading top subject areas Lower TCO Reduced maintenance costs Opportunity to Re-Architect Reduced development costs Not content with their current BW design Wanted to take advantage of some re-design opportunities with in-memory capabilities Which option did they choose? Deploy Parallel BW 7.3 on BW Footprint HANA landscape Current BW system still young Saw opportunity to adjust based on user input© 2011 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 24
