In your opinion, what value will BW add to a business with just one SAP client/system? We are on SAP 4.7 Enterprise.
SAP BW is a Data Warehousing product which can be used to extract, store, analyze and report on the data being extracted from SAP and non-SAP source systems. It can be used to consolidate data from different systems. Since BW is tightly integrated with SAP, easier and faster imnplementations are possible. Data can be extracted on a daily basis and the majority of reporting can be done on a BW system which will take the load away from the R/3 systems handling the recording of daily operations. To get a list of benefits of implementing SAP BW, please refer to my
business case article
that was published earlier this year.
