Prepare now for SAP S/4HANA: Real-world insights on the transition to real-time analytics on SAP S/4HANA 1610 and SAP BW/4HANA
Feb 28 2018, 3:15 PM – 4:15 PM

Based on a recent experience implementing SAP S/4HANA and SAP BW/4HANA at a large oil and gas company, this session provides useful insight into what you need to be thinking about now for your SAP S/4HANA and/or SAP BW/4HANA deployment. Focusing on technical challenges faced and steps you can take now to prepare your systems, explore:

  • How to address the changes that come with the IT simplifications introduced, such as changes to table structures
  • Options for data provisioning from SAP S/4HANA 1610 and non-SAP systems into the SAP BW/4HANA system, and how to model SAP HANA calculation views based on the new SAP S/4HANA 1610 tables
  • Query performance on SAP BW/4HANA for SAP analytical tools such as SAP Analysis for Microsoft Office and SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence
