The course deals with SAP’s market leading Data Warehousing solution SAP NetWeaver BW 7.5 on HANA.
This course deals primarily with data modeling in SAP BW on HANA. The contents of the courses SAP BW on HANA - Data Flow and BusinessObjects Analysis as well as SAP BW on HANA – Data Acquisition and BusinessObjects Reporting are prerequisite to this course.
As a first step, the theoretical basics of the SAP BW on HANA system are introduced. Connected to this theoretical introduction, the acquired knowledge is applied practically to a living SAP system by solving case studies. The case studies are performed in an SAP education system. The used IDES (Internet Demonstration and Evaluation System) represents a fully developed model enterprise. It is based on the standard SAP ERP system and offers the corporate structure and the data basis to accomplish extensive analyses in the SAP BW system. The participants learn how to work with the SAP BW-on-HANA system using the user interfaces SAP GUI and SAP HANA Studio. For SAP BusinessObjects several Design Tools are provided.
The course consists of three parts:
In the first part of the course, the participants deal with SAP's own enterprise data warehousing architecture for the implementation of SAP BW systems and projects: the LSA (Layered Scalable Architecture) and its renewal for SAP BW on HANA, the LSA++. Based on this, important aspects of SAP BW projects are explained and a logical as well as BW model is created for an integrated scenario.
The second part of the course deals with Physical Modeling in SAP BW on HANA. The previously developed logical models are transferred to InfoObjects, InfoProviders and Information Views. The focus here is on the optimal design of the data models to meet a given requirement.
In the third part of the course participants will build Analytical Applications on top of the previously created data models using the SAP BusinessObjects tools SAP BO Lumira and SAP BO Design Studio. Furthermore, Data Mining and Analysis capabilities of SAP BW are examined using SAP BW Analysis Process Designer.
