Overview SAP BW 7.4 SP5 on SAP HANA and further Roadmap

SAP BW on SAP HANA continues to be the  cornerstone of SAP’s strategic vision for enterprise data warehousing providing organizations a solid data foundation to capture, store, transform and manage data in a scalable, enterprise-ready data warehouse. And as new challenges arise in the market (exploding data volumes, new data sources, the need for real-time information access, etc), SAP BW on HANA continues to evolve in order to meet the growing challenges imposed on IT by these ever changing market forces. The release of SAP BW running on SAP HANA is a great example of how SAP BW has evolved to ensure organizations continue to leverage  their investment in SAP BW to meet these new  challenge.

These are what we call mixed scenarios. The interaction can take place in both directions, from SAP HANA to SAP BW and vice-versa, and there are options to physically move the data or to virtually expose it.
