BW/4HANA and S/4HANA
Firstly, BW/4HANA is completely independent of and not a prerequisite for SAP S/4HANA and vice versa. S/4HANA provides operational reporting for current data from a single SAP application. SAP BW/4HANA delivers a modern data warehouse environment which allows organizations to report on current, historical and external data sources from many SAP and non-SAP sources.
Converting an ERP System to SAP S/4HANA On Premise 1511, 1610, 1709 or 1809 or upgrading one SAP S/4HANA On Premise 1511, 1610 or 1709 to the next product version of SAP S/4HANA On Premise (currently 1709 or 1809) does not require to upgrade your central SAP NetWeaver system if this system has at least release SAP NetWeaver 7.31.
This rule applies to SAP NetWeaver Portal, SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse and SAP NetWeaver PI in combination with SAP S/4HANA On Premise 1511, 1610, 1709 and 1809.
