SAP BW/4HANA is SAP's next-generation data warehouse built on the SAP HANA platform, which delivers high performance, simplicity and agility. It enables the creation of real-time, enterprise-wide analytics that can combine all data within a company into a single logical view. All while minimizing data movement.
SAP BW/4HANA delivers simple data warehouse management, a modern approach to data modeling, agile development through a visually simple interface, or the ability to provide real-time data for SAP and non-SAP data sources.
It is possible to use a pre-built data warehouse or SQL-based development environment that works seamlessly with other solutions built on SQL technology. It also includes a rich pre-configured set of data models (business content) for selected business areas and industries, built on SAP's proven knowledge and know-how.
It is tailored for on-premise and cloud deployments (on the SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud or on partner clouds such as Amazon Web Services). SAP BW/4HANA is a high-performance platform ready for the future and new challenges.
