Changing Landscape of Data Warehousing
"Data warehouse has been pronounced dead for a long time" - continues to be at core
Bill McDermott - what do I need to do today to stay ahead tomorrow - answer can be stored in data warehouse
Data lakes - if not careful, build a swamp
Not your father's BW
Glen Leslie, BW/4HANA vision & strategy
Completely rearchitected, packaged
4 buckets "aren't marketing messages"
Simplify BW overall
Reduced ETL spend
Modeling and data source types from 10 to 4
Extension nodes - more tightly coupled data interaction on back end with less system configuration - hot and warm data
Export to HANA Calculation Views; more openness for SQL interface
Improve back end integration
HANA EIM is part of the infrastructure that BW/4HANA leverages with smart data integration
Revamped native integration with ODP interface
Integration directly to Data Hub
Open to the Cloud
BW/4HANA can be deployed on premise or cloud (HEC) or through partners AWS, Azure, Google
Simplified modeling interface
Cloud and on premise solution
Cloud is for easier lightweight deployment, with live connections to BW/4HANA
Data flow workbench in Eclipse
Rearchitect BW content
BW/4HANA content optimized for LSA++
Big data warehouse with Vora, connectivity to Hadoop
In-place conversion; BW/4HANA starter is where clean-up
Remote conversion allows for not having to do an all or nothing; take slices of BW system and convert those to BW/4HANA system (early adopter status) - expect GA early next year
"Time to revamp"
1 year live - GA SAP TechEd 2016
Question & Answer
Hello - If someone intent to use On-premise BW/4 and S/4 HANA in Scale-up deployment, what are the options for using Warm data in BW/4 using Extension nodes?
how IOT data will be loaded in BW/4 HANA system
You said that the BI content remains the same, if that s correct hen how at these old extractors be realtiime in BW/HANA
We are on SAP BW on HANA 7.4 - Including the time to upgrade to 7.5 %2B In Place Conversion, does that equal to a 3 months project ?
Could you elaborate on the Remote conversion of BW on any DB to BW4HANA?
Why has the 'Planning' option for aDSO disappeared in the BW modeling tools? Is it covered by BPC/4HANA now?
Question is that extension node capability available for Native HANA as well like BW/HANA? to store some warm/cold data
We have an existing investment in a HANA sidecar scenario building out our models with a native SQL based approach. How would I justify an additional investment in BW4HANA. We know we can leverage the same HANA views through BW4HANA but that does not justify an investment in BW4HANA. Other arguments are typically around modelling and master data. But are there any other selling factors?
#asksap We are planning to migrate to SAP BW/4 HANA, Could you please help, with the approximate installation and maintenance cost .. and also we will not migrate everything into HANA and will plan future projects to be developed in HANA, in that case how to plan every Infocube out of BWA?
Some experience integrating SAP BW/4 HANA with Hortonworks HDP platform?
We are planning to migrate to SAP BW/4 HANA, Could you please help, with the approximate installation and maintenance cost .. and also we will not migrate everything into HANA and will plan future projects to be developed in HANA, in that case how to plan every Infocube out of BWA?
Archiving to NLS Sybase IQ vs. Using Hadoop for Archiving - Cost; History Reporting if needed; Reduce data HANA DB etc..Which is more advantage based on SAP future strategies?
That means when we have IoT directly coming into BW/4Hana, so we can perform predictive analysis in BW/4Hana and create work orders in ERP for maintenance ... Is it possible?
SAP-BODS can be directly connected with BW4HANA to get data in aDSO ?
Twitter: is DataWarehouse still needed for 80 % of Analytics need that are operationnal, Real Time, Direct access to data?
How will BW/4HANA help customers migrate their current BW system with complex ABAP business logic ?
ok. but we don't want to introduce another tool like data hub/vora and want to use standard connectors. Will SDI be able to pull data from SAP IQ/HADOOP at run time for reporting? Performance will not be a big concern and will not be part of SLA.
Is there an Major update expected to BO to keep up with all the new features on BW4/Hana and the other competitors?
Do we need to Code(ABAP) to get Custom Tables data from ECC or CRM or the UI has been developed as simple drag and drop
What's the role for the new Web IDE in a BW/4HANA scenario?
What is the recommended extraction process from S/4 HANA to B/4HANA?
Will SAP Data Hub be available as a Trial or Developer edition in the SAP Cloud Appliance Library so customers can try it without an on-premise setup?
BW/4 HANA is presented as better at integrating external source data. Why would Data Hub and Vora be necessary then?
Can we say that BW4/Hana is on-Premise SAP leonardo?
Why is a 'Data Swamp' part of the Data Hub architecture diagram?
BW/4 HANA Support Direct access mode of BW Data source which do not required to persist data into BW? (ex: 0FIGL_M30 0FIGL_M20 0FIAA_M20 for each module there are direct access supported using datasource like 0fi_gl_12 0FI_ACDOCA_20 etc..) ?
Will HANA 2 NDSO be integrated with BW/4HANA?
How will BW/4HANA benefit customers in migrating current business logic written in ABAP ? Are there any conversion or migration tools available ?
After migrating to SAPBW/4HANA, what is the best practice to take the Infocubes out of BWA and runs in HANA platform?
Which are the main advantages of ODP data sources?
Can we convert Infocube to ADSO with Data?
What's going to replace the Enterprise Portal? SCP Portal, Lumira Designer, or a custom Fiori app?
Using S4HANA Embedded Analytics Dashboards can be created using CDS views. How is BW on HANA
is there a benefit to move to BW4/HANA before going to S/4HANA? would there be a lot of changes to be done?
What role does BW play in terms of a logical data warehouse environment? Is the BW the logical data warehouse?
Twitter: In a brief , what's the major business benefits of BW4HANA , if customer has already been using BW on HANA?#askSAP
Why is Katerra using BW instead of HANA Native EDW?
There is sap note talks about white listed datasources which talks about allowed datasources indicate few of datasources are not supported by BW4HANA ? Any lights on that ?
B/4 to On Premise SAP Portal NW 7.5 AND B/4 to Cloud SAP Portal both supported? as like BW to On premise SAP Portal ?
As part of UI Harmonization, B/4 Reporting and Various tools can be integrate / sso / accessed from Single Source of UI ex: Embedded Fiori Lauchpad of Portal (i.e. FLP @ EP in On premise portal) where we are merging all FIori APP, Classical Transactional tile, etc..?
after year 2025 SAP will support only installation on Hana or continue to support other databases ( eg sql , oracle , etc ) ?
Recently we went live with 7.5 BW on HANA in June 2017 and now SAP suggesting to move to SAP B/4 HANA. How good with these very frequent SAP product suite changes for customers to adapt after investing a lot on earlier versions.
Is SLT obsolete due to well working streaming based on ODP on BW/4?
What are the scenarios that you chose to persist the data?
Since the enhancement of Openness to different source systems , so what will be the role of data services in future
for realtime extraction where required, you said that the ODP interface supports ABAP CDS Views. so what about standard BW extractor like 0FI_ACDOCA_20/10 0FI_GL_12 - are they required any ODP ?
I understand that one can consume native SAP hana views in bw/4hana - but do they also support delta capabilities ?
