Migrating SAP Business Warehouse (BW) to SAP HANA without effective data management is costly and time-consuming.
By rightsizing BW in readiness for SAP HANA, you can use SAP IQ for Nearline Storage (NLS) to significantly reduce migration and ongoing costs.
Rightsizing will also ensure you access the long-term business benefits of SAP HANA’s unrivalled speed, scope and efficiency.
Our expertise in SAP BW will help you to:
Firstly we recommend using The BW Database Analyser which assists you with the planning and realisation of your SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse System archiving project.
The BW Database Analyser determines the memory usage for InfoCubes, DataStore objects and PSA tables in your BW database. Once implemented, you can use the measuring values for comparison analyses and thus estimate the database growth expectations for specific InfoProviders.
The BW Database Analyser will determine the size of the InfoProviders, consisting of InfoCubes, DataStore objects and PSA tables. Furthermore, it analyses the chronological distribution of the InfoCube data and DataStore objects.
The use of the BW Database Analyzer answers the following questions:
Data Identified as rarely used, can be moved to Nearline Storage and heavily compressed. It will remain accessible for reporting and audit purposes as required.
By streamlining your data, migrating to SAP HANA or B/4HANA becomes a more efficient, cost effective process.
Appliance and/or Cloud costs are reduced and ongoing data management ensures efficient use of BW on SAP HANA or B/4HANA.
