SAP has launched the next generation data warehouse application i.e. BW/4 HANA to leverage in-memory computing capability of SAP HANA. New deployment options like AWS (Amazon Web Services) and SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud are included for BW/4 HANA along with the traditional on-premise deployment feature. It would help customers to perform data analysis in real time on the cloud.
Gradually, SAP is redesigning its enterprise business applications for SAP HANA, thus customers could fully leverage the in-memory platform. For example, last year, SAP introduced S/4 HANA as next generation business suite which is the successor of SAP ERP known as ECC6.0 .
In the same way, to accelerate data warehousing processes, BW/4 HANA is offered by SAP to make business processes simpler with real time analytics powered by SAP HANA.
BW/4 HANA is designed simple and powered by enhanced modeling technique coupled with unified streamlined data warehouse object model. Moreover, it's far more integrated, efficient with faster data loading along with faster query analysis using SAP HANA Vora engine and a complete end-to-end data management platform which would help customers to meet today's complex business challenges. This data warehousing tool would be able to process big data by using SAP HANA Vora, as a result processing IoT data would be possible by business organizations. It has expanded the scope of data warehousing and made business more connected to the outside world.
Moreover, an easy migration process is offered by SAP to move business from SAP BW to BW/4 HANA.
