SAP builds next-gen data warehouse for the cloud

With an eye on the need for more scalable, real-time analytics, SAP today unveiled SAP BW/4HANA, its next-generation data warehouse product for the real-time digital enterprise.

BW/4HANA will support on-premises deployments, but will also be available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud (HEC), says Neil McGovern, senior director, Product Marketing, SAP Data Warehousing.

"We're trying to give our customers some options," he says. "AWS is infrastructure as a service (IaaS) — you can provision very quickly and inexpensively. With HEC, it's far more of a complete, turnkey solution — more platform as a service (PaaS)."

You can expect BW/4HANA to become available in other cloud environments as well, McGovern says.

"More and more organizations are looking to the cloud in the future as being the primary location for their decision-making system," he says.

SAP sees BW/4HANA as the new foundation for logical data warehousing that provides interactivity with historical and live data whether that data lives inside or outside the enterprise. SAP's vision for the next-generation data warehouse is one that significantly reduces data movement and duplication by analyzing data where it resides — whether in data lakes leveraging SAP's in-memory queue engine, HANA Vora, or in legacy systems inside or outside the enterprise. The next-generation data warehouse is also capable of integrating live streaming and time-series sensor data collected from Internet of Things (IoT) environments.
