  3. 3. SAP BW/4HANA - Key Capabilities High Performance • Reduce wait time for data handling and enable smart automation, with high-volume data processing in real time. Simplified modelling and administration • Speed up development and reduce implementation time , along with less spend on development with simplified modelling and administration features. Smart Integration • Connect to SAP and non-SAP applications and data sources to reduce costs for data integration; extract, transform, and load processes; and on-premise infrastructure. Instinctive user experience • Increase user productivity while increasing user adoption with help of an instinctive user experience and a modern interface Simplified AgileInnovative Open to all Data
  4. 4. SAP BW/4HANA - Simplifications • Number of Modelling object types reduced from 10 to 4 (60% less) to improve TCO. • Field or Info Object based modelling • Greater control of data persistency and virtualization • Support for external, structured, and unstructured data • Number of Source System types reduced from 10 to 4 (60% less) • HANA Source System for all database connectivity (non- SAP data) Simplified Data Model Simplified Source Systems
  5. 5. SAP BW/4HANA - Standard Business Contents • Business Content enables rapid and cost- effective implementation as it delivers a model that can be used as a guideline during implementation. • The delivered standard data models are envisioned as a base for designing, modeling, and building a enterprise Datawarehouse. • It helps to reduce the TCO with faster data to insight for business decision making process. • The SAP BW/4HANA Content was explicitly designed to leverage the SAP HANA capabilities by using a reliable EDW reference architecture called LSA++ (Layered Scalable Architecture).
  6. 6. Transitioning to SAP BW/4HANA New Customer New customer to SAP or considering for reimplementation can migrate legacy system to a new installation of SAP BW/4HANA with SAP’s integrated data management and quality tools. BW on Any DB Upgrade existing BW (on any database) system to BW on SAP HANA, further migrate to SAP BW/4HANA Object Set and upgrade to SAP BW/4HANA. BW on HANA Migrate to SAP BW/4HANA Object Set, then upgrade to SAP BW/4HANA. Landscape Transformation Simplify landscape to carve out designated procedures and functions and moving gradually to SAP BW/4HANA. Helps consolidating rapidly and delivering predictive features. SAP BW/4HANA on premise or cloud
  7. 7. SAP BW/4HANA – Conversion Paths to SAP BW/4HANA 2.0 New System Classic BW on Any DB Classic BW on Any DB Classic BW on Any DB SAP BW/4HANA 2.0 Classic BW on Any DB 1. Greenfield Implementation SAP BW 7.5 powered by SAP HANA SAP BW 7.5 on SAP HANA + SAP BW/4HANA Starter Add-On 2.a. In-place Conversion / Full System Conversion 2.b. Remote Conversion / System Conversion / Brownfield 2.c. Shell Conversion / Accelerated Greenfield 3. Landscape Transformation/ System Consolidation
  8. 8. SAP BW/4HANA Path 1 New Implementation • New implementation of SAP BW/4HANA for customers migrating from a legacy system • Customers looking for fresh DW Implementation with a new data model and extract only relevant data from source systems • For customers, looking for new and fresh implementation SAP is planning to offer an option to transport certain objects from the existing SAP BW system to a newly installed SAP BW/4HANA system. Scenario • Re-engineering and process simplification based on modern data warehouse architecture • Eliminate old age data • Improved system size • Gain full benefits of SAP HANA platform Benefits for Customers • SAP Business Warehouse customers looking for reimplementation. • New customers Target Audience
  9. 9. SAP BW/4HANA Path 2 System Conversion • Customers who want to migrate existing SAP BW system to SAP BW/4HANA system • Sizing tool to support for database, release, and application transition • Customers not yet on Unicode need an additional process step Scenario • Migration without reimplementation • No disruption for existing business processes • Re-evaluation of customization, data models and data flows Benefits for Customers • SAP Business Warehouse Customers Target Audience
  10. 10. SAP BW/4HANA Path 3 Landscape Transformation • Customers who want to consolidate their landscape or systems • Customer who want to carve out certain data models or data flows into an existing SAP BW/4HANA system • Customer-specific migration project re-using standard tools (planned service offering from SAP’s Data Management & Landscape Transformation group) Scenario • Stay with current data warehouse landscape and move gradually to SAP BW/4HANA innovations • Consistent data models and common master data through consolidation • Carve out of single entities of the company to SAP BW/4HANA and leverage process simplification Benefits for Customers • SAP customers with multiple SAP BW, or SAP BW on SAP HANA systems, or hybrid cases Target Audience
  11. 11. SAP BW/4HANA – Right Path for You Existing Solution New Implementation System Conversion Landscape TransformationIn Place Remote One or more legacy systems SAP BW on any database SAP BW powered by SAP HANA SAP BW powered by SAP HANA with the starter add-on for SAP BW/4HANA Multiple SAP BW application systems Highly recommended pathPossible alternative path Recommended path Not supported Shell Conversion is Similar to Remote Conversion but without data transfer. Its an Accelerated greenfield approach by transferring and converting data models and flows.
