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

Cons

SAP BW

  • I wish it could hold a part where even though it is not in use yet, but you know you will need it, it won't allow it to be checked it rather than put on backorder.
  • Some of the menu paths can be a little difficult to remember or follow.
  • It is not easy for a novice user to go in and create a report quickly.

Talend Data Integration

  • Syncing with Git should be made easier

It basically stores all data I need in designed reports, which helps a lot with the analysis and calculation.It's quite interactive when you understand reports and know how to drill-down/swap. Fresh users might need some training. There are quite a lot of options to display data differently, or to add more filters in data as well as to extract the data in xlsx/csv/html format.

We use Talend Data Integration day in and day out. It is the best and easiest tool to jump on to and use. We can build a basic integration super-fast. We could build basic integrations as fast as within the hour. It is also easy to build transformations and use Java to perform some operations.

Good support, specially when it relates to PROD environment. The support team has access to the product development team. Things are internally escalated to development team if there is a bug encountered. This helps the customer to get quick fix or patch designed for problem exceptions. I have also seen support showing their willingness to help develop custom connector for a newly available cloud based big data solution

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.

Talend Data Integration

Talend is much versatile in assimilating various different business use cases. It covers more functionality and is packed with tons of features to explore. It has the ability to fine tune to each project, and not be a one-fits all solution. Problems with Excel, is that it is not suited for large projects, collaboration work. Alteryx is a very costly alternative.

Return on Investment

SAP BW

  • The positive Return on Investment we receive with the software was the ability to import decades of data. We were then able to review the materials see trends we were previously unable to see without intense work.
  • The only negative impact was applying the training and changing procedures to deal with the software. This worked out, obviously, because this is not a software to be using without proper training.

Talend Data Integration

  • Easy to build complex data transformations.
  • Licensing model isn't that flexible.
  • Memory mangement for huge volumes of information. You have to modify ETL designs to handle it properly.
