Migrating Your Business Warehouse to Run on SAP HANA  (EIM 300)

TechEd Online Presentation

With the release of SAP NetWeaver 7.30 SP05 and onwards (7.31 SP04), it is technically possible to migrate to SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse on SAP HANA from any database without an additional technical upgrade beforehand. As the migration process to SAP HANA doesn´t differ from other heterogeneous database migrations, the main principle steps remain the same. To ease the complete process, there is an end-to-end guide available which covers all kinds of best practices and tips and tricks at this time. Furthermore, additional assets provided by application lifecycle management (ALM) help to improve the migration process to SAP HANA overall. The intention of this one-hour session is to give the right direction to the existing best practice guidelines and basic concepts of the heterogeneous migration concept.

SAP NetWeaver BW Powered by SAP HANA and Future Road Map (EIM 200)

TechEd Online Presentation
This lecture will outline how SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse powered by SAP HANA will supercharge your Business Warehouse (BW). You will learn the concept of SAP HANA optimized DataStore Objects, SAP HANA optimized InfoCubes and SAP HANA-based planning (BW integrated planning) as well as how SAP BW powered by HANA will speed up query performance and simplify your BW implementation. After an update of already existing customer implementations, you will also get an outlook on SAP NetWeaver BW SP8 and the further BW road map.

SAP NetWeaver BW Workspaces and Analysis – Flexibility for Business (EIM 207)

TechEd Online Presentation

How to solve the everlasting conflict between IT and business departments? The IT department ensures data consistency and security on the data in a data warehouse. This can be a time-consuming task. But business needs flexibility and therefore often downloads central, consistent, and secure data to a local database to enrich it with local data. From that point on, the data is disconnected from the central point of truth and might get inconsistent, and people might access information they are not supposed to see. SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW) 7.30 provides the solution for this conflict: BW workspaces. With SAP NetWeaver BW or SAP HANA, IT departments can define departmental “playgrounds” that expose central data models, but enable business to enrich local data. BW workspaces are completely IT governed, that is, central data is consistent, secure, and new data models can be fully managed with respect to their lifecycle. See BW workspaces live and see additional opportunities to leverage that infrastructure from within SAP BusinessObjects Analysis, edition for Microsoft Office. Don’t miss this lecture!

Upgrading Your Business Warehouse to Run on SAP HANA (EIM 301)

TechEd Online Presentation

The first step into the SAP HANA world is to upgrade to the latest release of SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW) release 7.3 since customers can use a lot of new features to improve the existing implementation. As the EhP1 for SAP NetWeaver 7.30 is available as well, this includes improvements in the upgrade procedure and the consolidation of the installed add-ons like SAP Strategic Enterprise Management (SAP SEM) which brings more flexibility into the upgrade process. This one-hour overview explains the technical upgrade process and the consideration which has to be taken beforehand to guarantee a fast, stable, and successful upgrade to SAP NetWeaver BW 7.30 and 7.30 EhP1.

Integrating SAP BusinessObjects BI with SAP NetWeaver BW and SAP ERP

In this session, customers will learn a set of technical best practices, which they can use when integrating SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence (SAP BusinessObjects BI) 4.x with SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW), and SAP ERP. Attendees will learn about data connectivity options, metadata support, data-level security, user management, query design in SAP Business Explorer (SAP BEx), and other important topics when integrating these two software stacks. Attendees will also learn which elements from their SAP NetWeaver BW and SAP ERP systems can be leveraged in the SAP BusinessObjects BI environment, and which are not supported.

Migrating to SAP NetWeaver BW on SAP HANA – Automation and Rapid Deployment (ALM 222)
TechEd Online Presentation

In this session, you will learn how you can perform the migration of SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW) to SAP NetWeaver BW when powered by SAP HANA easier, faster, and more reliable by different offerings from SAP. This includes the automation of SAP NetWeaver BW post-copy activities used for the migration and predefined tools plus methodologies provided with SAP rapid deployment solutions. You will learn how to enable SAP NetWeaver BW when powered by SAP HANA to “go productive” with the parallel operation of your existing production system, both connected to the same backend systems. This critical part of the migration is realized with a special and unique automated task list for delta queue cloning and synchronization on the production system. Due to the technical nature of this session, you may want to attend the following sessions first: - TEC105 "SAP HANA Database for SAP Business Suite": how to use and benefit from SAP HANA with SAP Business Suite applications - TEC204 "How to Migrate to SAP HANA": what does the overall migration process to SAP HANA look like, including involved tools and best practices - EIM300 "Migrating Your Business Warehouse to Run on SAP HANA": how to bring SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse 7.3 to SAP HANA - EIM301 "Upgrading Your Business Warehouse to Run on SAP HANA": how to bring SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse 7.0 to SAP HANA

Real-Time Data in SAP Business Planning and Consolidation on SAP HANA: (AP 266)
Hands On Session

Architect a real-time data flow from SAP ERP into SAP Business Planning and Consolidation on SAP HANA, based on a hybrid-providers architecture in SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse on SAP HANA. Explore the new EPM add-in capabilities including write back and advanced report building and the usage of formulas and local members to enrich the reporting experience and build critical reports such as price-volume-mix analysis. We will address common questions such as EVDRE reporting vs. the new application 10 drag and drop reporting paradigm. We will use an easy to consume business process flow that guides the business user through the planning process while linking to planning instructions and schedules and data manager packages to enrich data and analysis processes. Thanks to new functionality available in the latest SAP Business Planning and Consolidation release, we can use a MultiProvider to combine the real-time actuals in data in SAP NetWeaver BW and the SAP Business Planning and Consolidation data together for immediate variance reporting.
