Q. What are the advantages of running SAP NetWeaver BW on SAP HANA?


The advantages are described in the following categories:

  • Dramatically improved performance – Performance improvements occur in multiple areas including BW Queries that run 10-100 times faster, data loads that run 5-10 times faster, and calculations that are 5-10 times faster. The performance improvements help customers gain competitive advantage through reduced data latency and increased availability.
  • Simplified administration and streamlined IT landscape - SAP HANA helps customers lower total cost of ownership, reduce IT workloads and respond faster to business requests for information. Greater operational efficiency helps customers gain competitive advantage by reducing waste and increasing the use of data to run their business better.
  • Unlock the power of your data across the enterprise - business people will have faster, easier access to all their data at any level of detail, which drives competitive advantage through greater business flexibility.
  • Preserve Your BW Investment without Disruption – BW customers can easily transition their BW environment to run on SAP HANA without disrupting their BW application. A database migration is required but there is no impact to the BW application layer itself meaning there are no changes required to existing business content, logic, BW queries, etc.
