Overall Satisfaction with SAP Business Warehouse

On our client site, our reporting department uses SAP BW systems to generate the financial reports, customer data reports etc. It's been a challenge for departments to get the reports generated with the data from the latest availability of the backend systems, our BW system came up with the solution for the same accordingly.
  • it has the best availability tool for generating different reports like Bex analyzer
  • different data models like sementic data model for different data management systems
  • can easily integrate and generate the reports from different sources like XML file uploading, 3rd party data sources etc...
  • the regularly scheduled process chain gets hung sometimes and there is room for improvement.
  • in the new version of NW, we need a seperate java based system to generate web-based reports. it should in fact inbuilt.
  • so far I have not heard any negative impact to our customer for their business, in fact, we have heard with the positive improvement only like, the reporting, modeling, numerous options.
  • ultimately helps the planning process also got the optimized data pulling process.
  • our internal team got the tremendous growth in performance, with historical data, trending analysis reports and different demand reports.
We have been considering using SAP BW for a long time and we have seen great support. The upgraded version availibility, is why we like SAP BW on HANA with great real-time reporting features. It is super fast and the respective department can get the results very quickly. Now we are planning to utilize BW4HANA with its optimized features. We will implement and utilize them accordingly.
I used it for one of our customers to predict the future performance. SAP BW provides the result very seamlessly and accurately which ultimately improved the business for our client. From my point of view SAP BW best suits for the business where the data modeling and special warehouse reporting is necessary on a regular basis for getting financial, customer, sales, stakeholders etc data.
