SAP BW

SAP BW is best for:1. Large enterprises2. Enterprises with 3+ legacy systems with entrenched users (politically difficult to merge)3. Enterprises with employees who can understand both the technical capabilities of SAP BW and the needs of the business users - ability to speak both languages, otherwise the program could be unwieldy and potentially underutilized (it's not particularly inexpensive)SAP BW is less appropriate for:1. Small enterprises2. Enterprises who have well established, same location, CRM and UFS - the integration of data analysis will be easier and less expensive with other solutions3. HANA
Jeff Looby, CPA | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP HANA

Best suited for enterprise-scale spatial data management and analysis, where multiple spatial systems or databases exist in silos.Too expensive for project level analysis and lacks advanced spatial analysis tools as well as support for more spatial data formats for ingestion.

Pros

SAP BW

  • It tracks bin locations for parts which can be really helpful.
  • SAP Business Warehouse tells you who has a part checked out so you can find it.
  • It shows current parts shortages so buyers are flagged to get parts on order based on current demand.
Brandi Brown-Lang | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP HANA

  • If required, SAP S/4HANA may be installed and configured on the cloud.
  • Because of the simplification of functionality, IT personnel may be able to devote more of their time and resources to delivering services rather than doing maintenance tasks.
  • Assist businesses in making better decisions about their operations by providing better information.
  • SAP HANA is a superb web solution with advanced remote data synchronization capabilities that is very quick and easy to use.

Cons

SAP BW

  • Support comes slow. This is not a limitation of the software itself but could be a symptom from the local office. Once we get support everything works along smoothly.
  • It is always important to review the instructions. This is not a system that does well initially with personalization without review of standard procedures. A log of time can be lost if the technicians and programmers working with the data are not following correct procedures.
Alfred Brock | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP HANA

  • Better workload management - de-prioritize long running queries.
  • Better scheduling and monitoring platform for XSA jobs. Built-in scheduler.
  • Dependency analyzer like the one for CDS views for Calculation views.
  • UI development options like ASAP selection screen for simple use cases.
  • Built-in table editor.

At this moment we are not focusing on SAP, however would love to in the future. This is primarily because of our limited ability to generate more revenue to fund for SAP partnerships and products. Our initial tryst with SAP Partneredge open ecosystem didn't go as planned and we have shelved that for now. Hope we can revive in the future

In addition to the points described in the previous parts of the review, I believe that as I gain more experience with the product over time, I will be able to better describe my experience with this tool. Meanwhile, I can confirm that the possibilities presented to my organization by the change to SAP HANA, at the moment, have been very important to evolve the analytical and strategic field towards a new path.

SAP BW is a consolidated tool. There are thousands of SAP notes in order to solve your problems and in case do not exist, SAP support will help you on the issue you face.

SAP HANA is the best in the current market. The price point is competitive at the moment despite its level. It integrates well with other applications across geographies as well as multiple data sources. Its predictive analytics function really helps to thanks HANAs advanced data vis. abilities. Will be my choice for clients for the next few years.

Professional GIS people are some of the most risk-averse there are, and it's difficult to get them to move to HANA in one step. Start with small projects building to 80% use of HANA spatial over time.

Alternatives Considered

SAP BW

SAP Business Warehouse scores higher in data warehouse functionalities for integration to SAP ERP and other SAP solutions such as SAP CRM, SAP APO, and SAP SRM. Standard SAP data source extractors which are available in SAP ERP can be used immediately for full or delta replication into SAP Business Warehouse. System governance in SAP Business Warehouse is top-notch with change management support for migration between system landscape from the development system to production system.
Julius Shen | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP HANA

SAP Hana is beneficial because it has a
pleasant interface, is well structured, has excellent mobile accessibility, and
has solid permission control options. It is also interoperable with other
databases, hardware, and software, making it more adaptable and versatile.

Return on Investment

SAP BW

  • Exporting of data and reports to Excel is very easy for the end user to interpret and manipulate.
  • Negatively, the speed at which BW retrieves data and reports is very slow and out of date.
  • Addition of daughter application HANA has helped this aging application stay afloat for a few more years. Overall it has been a great tool but it's showing its age very fast.
Sam Figueroa | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP HANA

  • Wide variety of data types can be maintained easily, so flexibility is in our hands.
  • The decision we made by analyzing the generated report really had a great positive impact.
  • Considering the scalability SAP HANA offers, it is the best investment.
