Business Case

Does SAP provide a HANA a tool to quatify the value of SAP HANA?

Yes, the tool is not BW specific, and has been specifically designed to enable the value of SAP HANA by leveraging use cases that can be implement today.  The HANA Value Calculator provides an immediate analysis, leveraging your data and predefined assumptions, of the potential value for a business by deploying SAP HANA.

The calculator captures a small set of scenarios that :

•SAP has identified with customers globally

•Have resonated with business economic buyers

•Often stimulate the discovery of scenarios for a particular business

•May not be applicable to all customers in terms of  industries, regions or size

Is there a case study available from a BW Customer who migrated to BW on HANA?

Yes, our partner Dell computer has created a case study with the German customer Koehler, who accomplished the migration in 3 days and has seen significant benefits. In additio, please see link to article form Informationweek about the experiences from USHA, India.

One of the main benefits of moving to BW on HANA is the reduced time of delivery, i.e. faster BI project. There is a nice blog outlining some of those aspects with customer examples.
