BWA is, to some extend, nothing else than a database. A database optimized for Data Warehouse use like dealing with large volumes at low response times, using dimensional modeling with measures etc. The things BWA does not provide you with is a way to create the "tables" and a utility to load data into it, but the Business Objects DataServices product does. With this tool you might simply copy the existing Data Warehouse Star Schema into BWA, put a BI tool like Explorer on top and go for it.
