The following is a partner blog by Arun Varadarajan, Senior Manager BI at Visual BI Solutions.
Data warehousing is a concept that has been around for a long time and continues to evolve at a fast clip. Enterprises are now looking at building their data warehouse into a data platform that satisfies all their needs and are increasingly looking to consolidate their systems and sources.
Companies now deal with massive data volumes, internet-enabled devices, and increased user choices—all while trying to keep their platforms simple and scalable. Meanwhile, factors influencing data platforms range from system compatibility to existing skillsets within the organization.
SAP Business Warehouse has kept up with these changes through the years by including extraction, modeling, and…

On June 23 2016, the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. This unexpected referendum result – commonly referred to as Brexit – came as a surprise to many observers across the Channel. Thankfully, the decision not to support SAP Business Explorer (BEx) in SAP BW/4HANA —let’s call it the SAP Business Explorer it strategy!—didn’t come as such a surprise to long-time SAP Business Warehouse (BW) users.

Every March, the world’s largest IT event CeBIT showcases the latest technology innovations. The SAP “chancellor demo” has become almost a tradition, and 2017 was no exception. With Japan, one of the world’s largest and most innovative economies, being the official partner country of the event, our demo was not only presented to Germany’s Chancellor Merkel, but also to Japan’s Prime Minister Abe – and it was powered by SAP HANA.
The demo this year focused on how data can help anticipate natural events and take necessary action where needed. It showed how the risk of landslides can be predicted: With publicly available geo data (e.g. from the European Space Agency) analyzed with the SAP HANA Earth Observation Analysis Service running on the SAP HANA platform, areas of risk can be identified and assessed. The results can help governing authorities and local emergency services to optimize rescue planning and even take preventive measures.

A good understanding or a good description of a problem is a prerequisite to finding a solution. In this blog, I want to introduce just such a problem description for a data platform that is used for analytic purposes. Traditionally, this is called a data warehouse (DW), but labels, such as data mart, big data platform, and data hub  are also used in this context. I’ve named this problem description the Data Warehousing Quadrant. (An initial version has been shown in this blog.)
Since then, I’ve used it in many meetings with customers, partners, analysts, colleagues and students. It has the nice effect that it makes people think about their own data platform (problem) as they try to locate where they are and where they want to go. This is extremely helpful as it triggers the…
