SAP is the world's leading provider of enterprise
software and therefore also crucial in the area of business warehouse
applications. Particularly, SAP Business Warehouse is by far the fastest growing
and most prestigious area in the SAP product market. Following the acquisition of Business Objects in 2007, SAP significantly
increased its influence in the BW environment and held 13.3% of business
warehouse solutions' market share two years later. In 2011, SAP’s market share
was nearly twice as high at 23%. In 2011, SAP also launched the first version of SAP HANA which was initially conceived as a data mart solution (an extract
or a copy of a partial data within a data warehouse). The core of SAP HANA consists
of an in-memory database that uses the much faster RAM of the computer for data
storage. That process enables higher performance, which is particularly
noticeable when it comes to the evaluation and processing of large amounts of
data. Especially, in the context of big data and Industry 4.0, the development
of HANA database technology plays a decisive role.
SAP Business Warehouse is the basis for many
analytical processes within a company’s everyday processes, e. g. in the area
of controlling or reporting; in other words, in areas where a lot of data is to
juggle. However, many companies are also increasingly using BW applications in departments
such as marketing, purchasing, and/or sales. This means that the operation of
BW software is not exclusively reserved for senior management. More and more
employees in companies work now with BW software (or have to). Through targeted
BW-on-HANA migration significant improvements in data storage, data modelling,
and data architecture can be achieved now. In addition, as corporate strategies
are increasingly linked with day-to-day operations of a business, BW (on HANA)
applications can help to optimize processes by saving costs and streamlining
A well-founded education and practical experience
gained with SAP BW (on HANA) during your studies will therefore impress most
employers as a valuable addition to your other skills. Thus, expertise in SAP
BW (on HANA) undoubtedly will increase your chances in an application process.
SAP BW on HANA Consultant Certification
erp4students offers three courses in the field of SAP BW on HANA which have to be taken consecutively. Together, these three courses cover the theoretical contents of the SAP-own BW program (consisting of five courses) and, thus, prepare participants for the official SAP BW consultant certification.
The contents of these courses are completely compatible with the corresponding SAP in-house trainings, as you can see in the chart below. That means, in case you cannot finish the BW program at erp4students during your time at university, you can still take those in-house courses which you are missing directly at SAP, and then go for the SAP BW certification.
After each one of the erp4students courses, a certificate from the Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences is issued that states the practical work on the system, the course’s contents and the workload of 150 - 180 hours (6 ECTS).
Participants are offered the chance of taking the official SAP certification exam which is offered in various locations. After passing the exam, the official SAP consultant certificate (C_TBW50H_75) is issued. As a result of our cooperation with SAP University Alliances and SAP Next-Gen we are able to offer the exam at special rates for students.
* These rates are only available for students! We can offer the courses at these rates due to our cooperation with SAP University Alliances and SAP Next-Gen.
