The SAP BW/4 HANA platform is used by our clients as a corporate data warehouse solution hosting information from all areas of the company and being the basis for reporting needs-oriented to decision making.
- Loading data from SAP ERP data sources.
- Use of data virtualization to minimize load times.
- Data hosting in memory since the underlying database is HANA.
- Interface improvements so that all development is web-based.
- Ease of connectivity with non-SAP sources.
- Avoid the need to continue using the SAP GUI.

A scenario where BW/4 HANA fits perfectly is for corporate data warehouse solutions especially when the source of data is a HANA ERP. It integrates seamlessly with the SAP Business Analytics Cloud business intelligence solution.

We use BW/4HANA for analytics and reporting. It is used across the enterprise. Our initial deployment has been across finance with a view to migrate our classical BW environment over to BW/4HANA. Our currently classical BW has reached end of life and we need to commence the migration over to BW/4HANA soon.
- Better preformance
- Ability to perform hybrid data modelling
- Better integration to non-SAP data sources
- Simplified data modelling
- Still has reliance of ABAP stack.
- Not all exception aggregation conditions are pushed down to HANA
- BW-IP should be included in offering as it was previously.
- BW workspaces could improved, has huge potential.

Hybrid data modelling is for sure a great strength. The ability to stick to traditional data modelling as well as modelling using HANA Calculation Views locks huge potential. Having access to multiple HANA native engines and features means less reliance on ABAP stack. All this whilst still leveraging traditional BW features e.g. master data infoObjects, time-dependencies, etc.

SAP BW is being used in my organization as the tool that allows us to read and consolidate business (life or not depending on the kind of data). We use it only in certain departments, as not everyone is doing the analysis of this kind of information.

It is great for processing data, super fast and clear. It improves business process agility and creates better efficiency across departments. I would definitely recommend the tool for its functionalities and good performance. Implementation is not that convenient, but the rest is just great.

SAP BW/4HANA is the main source of metadata information in our company. Besides a lot of standarised reports made by a specialized team, we have the possibility to download any kind of data through BW. This possibility allows us to be more independent when we have a specific need. It's easy to use and fast enough to cover our needs.

SAP/BW is able to offer you a lot of company data with the help of a simple query. I use it in order to see sales & invoicing data of my company every day. If you don't have permission to make/edit your queries, you may get lost trying to adapt an existing query to offer the information you want to see.
