Suitable for hosting large volumes of data and using multiple cloud-based reporting tools to create dashboards, KPI's, and reports that need to be available daily or in near real time. Good integration with most HANA applications although there seem to be some limits with others. It is not suitable for massive volumes of data given the nature of SAP's pricing for HANA. Large volumes and analytics may be more suited to a data lake external to BW/4HANA.

Some scenarios where SAP BW/4HANA is well suited are retail industry, supply chain, finance, warehouse, stocking processes, BI, [and] some finance analytics reporting. Some scenarios where SAP BW/4HANA is less appropriate [is when] relational queries are needed [and] in some small business with infrastructure limitations. Another scenario that is less appropriate is for ABAP processes requirements.

Solid data warehouse based on best-in-class in-memory HANA database with excellent integration into SAP solutions, as well as predelivered business content facilitating initial implementation. Leverages the best of SAP's architecture and flexible data warehousing capabilities, without compromising performance and simplification. Will be key enabler to our Finance and HCM analytics roadmap.

SAP BW/4HANA integrates well within the SAP Landscape (ECC, S4HANA, IBP, etc.), and you can easily implement it if already an SAP shop. You can also find several Public Cloud implementations, especially on AWS, that can accelerate your Proof of Concept and validation. If you are adding more tools and systems into the landscape, you may want to consider another agnostic toolset that can easily integrate with non-SAP products.

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 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.

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.

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.
