This blog looks at one of SAP BW/4HANA’s biggest strengths,—its ability to embrace both (1) a guided or managed approach (using the highly integrated SAP Business Warehouse  or BW/4-based tools and editors) and (2) a freestyle or SQL-oriented approach (as prevalent in many handcrafted data warehouses based on some relational databases (RDBMS).
And it’s not restricted to only running those approaches side-by-side! They can also be combined in many ways, which allows users to tap into the best of both worlds. For instance, data can be loaded into an arbitrary table using basic SQL, and then that table can be exposed to SAP BW/4HANA as an info-provider, which can be secured via SAP BW/4HANA’s rich set of security features.
In fact, many SAP customers have one or more SAP Business Warehouse systems for (1) the…

What do you want to do that you can’t do today?
This question is top of mind for SAP as we approach our customers. We know that their needs for data management are getting more complex – but there’s a solution. Allow me to explain.
The proliferation of data, and the shift toward data-driven businesses, has had such a profound impact that every business is an analytics business, and every employee an analytics user. On top of this growing need, it’s no secret that the amount of data you must manage is growing dramatically as well. In fact, it’s growing at a rate of 80% every year. The impact of this data explosion is hard to conceptualize. Managing, ensuring the validity, and making sense of all that data is an overwhelming task.
It’s this need for analytics by a growing base of users, coupled with increasing volumes and the variety of data, that is creating a flashpoint. This is a critical inflection point in the evolution of today’s enterprise, the social…

According to Gartner, the public cloud services market will grow 18% in 2017 to total $246.8 billion. By 2020, SaaS is predicted to be at $75.7bn, IaaS at $71.5bn, and PaaS at $56.1bn, comprising a total market of $383.3bn, Gartner adds. Growth in the infrastructure compute service space will be enhanced by artificial intelligence (AI), analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), while the growth of PaaS will in turn also drive the growth of IaaS.
Two modes, one strategy
It was also Gartner who first coined the term “bimodal” to describe two fundamentally different but nevertheless complementary ways of working that address different goals. Mode 1 focuses on…

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…
