Evaluate Weigh the pros and cons of technologies, products and projects you are considering.

Is it feasible to evaluate BW on a Windows/Oracle environment?

We are in the process of implementing BW within our organization. We have already piloted it on a UNIX system. But now, we want to evaluate it by installing it on a Windows/Oracle environment and connecting it to our existing R/3 instance on a UNIX environment. Is this a feasible, reliable and scalable idea?
This is definitely feasible, and is supposed to be reliable and scalable too. SAP provides a tool called DB Connect that is designed to integrate disparate databases into the BW environment, and it should readily support your requirements. For more information on DD Connect and other BW issues, consult Mastering the SAP Business Information Warehouse*, by Kevin McDonald.
