SAP Business warehouse

SAP business warehouse (BW) provides market-leading enterprise-class data warehousing functionality, a business intelligence platform, and a suite of business intelligence tools for reporting on the data contained in the data warehouse. With the acquisition of BusinessObjects, SAP’s focus has been moved towards the data warehousing functionality itself – and away from reporting. The data warehousing capabilities are truly enterprise-ready, covering all aspects of an enterprise data warehouse. Combined with SAP HANA, SAP BW provides a unique in-memory data warehouse.
