Use SAP data warehousing to run SAP HANA simply and efficiently.


Simplify your BW data in readiness for migrating to SAP HANA or BW/4HANA

The challenge

Migrating SAP Business Warehouse (BW) to SAP HANA or BW/4HANA without effective data management is costly and time-consuming.

How we can help

Our approach

Firstly we recommend using The BW Data 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:

  • How much is my database increasing?
  • For which InfoProviders does archiving make sense?
  • Which InfoProvider requires most of the disk space?

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 BW/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 BW/4HANA.
