  • Near real-time data replication from HANA databases.
  • Strong BW functionality.
  • A host of cloud reporting tools can seamlessly connect to it.
  • Enterprise license pricing is very expensive and run-time license limits the usefulness of the tool.
  • Integration with SAP Analytics Cloud for write-back to BW/4HANA. Live connection is only read from SAC.
  • Make run-time licenses more useful.
