This page provides information to the Warehouse Management part of BW. It should help to get a better understanding of the basic concepts and give a guideline how to analyze problems in these areas.

Data warehousing forms the basis of an extensive business intelligence solution that allows you to convert data into valuable information. Integrated and company-specific data warehousing provides decision makers in your company with the information and knowledge they need to determine goal-oriented measures to ensure the success of the company. Data warehousing in SAP BW includes the following functions. You can apply these functions to data from any source (SAP or non SAP) and of any age (historic or current):

  • Integration
  • Transformation
  • Consolidation
  • Clean up
  • Storage
  • Staging for analysis and interpretation

Data warehousing in BW allows you to access source data directly at the source or physically store data in BW. The Data Warehousing Workbench is the central tool for data warehousing tasks in BW.
