Overall Satisfaction with SAP Business Warehouse

SAP Business Warehouse is used as the data warehouse for reporting purposes. It consolidates, harmonizes and transforms all the relevant data coming from SAP. Traditional ERP SAP is good for operational reporting, where you need the detail of the transaction, but if you want to analyze summarized data, or harmonize across companies, it is good to have SAP BW.
  • Connectivity against SAP ERP
  • Usage of ABAP programming for transformation
  • Reporting tool out of the BOX. BEX Analyzer is not supported.
  • I was not involved
Having SAP as our backend made it easy to choose the data warehouse tool, so there were no alternatives.
SAP BW is a consolidated tool. There are thousands of SAP notes in order to solve your problems and in case do not exist, SAP support will help you on the issue you face.

The answer is "it depends". If you have SAP as your backend, then go for it. You have standard extractions which will make life easier for the creation of the data warehouse. If you do not have SAP, then I would not recommend it, as I think there are other products in the market which are more flexible in terms of connectivity.
