SAP Data Warehouse Cloud is a pure cloud product offered as a Software as a Service and is an In-Memory data warehouse fully managed by SAP. It is scalable, elastic, open and flexible making it suitable for any company of any size. This means that, for example, if the customers computing or storage needs change, the cloud can be quickly scaled up or down – no setup or installation is necessary. And you only pay for what you use. It is an open product that can connect to many data sources (on-premises or in the cloud). It has various components that helps customers achieve business outcomes. Virtualization enables a real-time virtual data access to various source systems. In this scenario, data is left in the source (not moved and duplicated) and only accessed remotely when needed. Replication lets you transfer data in real-time or in a scheduled manner for high-speed access to data that may have large volumes or reside in sources which offer less access speed. Third-party APIs allow external data movement tools like SAP Data Intelligence and others to connect and bring data out of a variety of sources into SAP Data Warehouse Cloud.
SAP BW to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud
SAP offers the possibility of a tool-supported move of SAP BW or SAP BW/4HANA investments to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, SAP BW bridge. SAP BW bridge is a feature of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, that provides a path to the public cloud for SAP BW and SAP BW/4HANA customers. It enables connectivity and business content via proven SAP BW-based data integration (extractors) from SAP source systems. In addition, it provides staging layers of SAP BW to manage data loads (including deltas) with partitioning, monitoring, and error handling.
SAP has developed tools to automate this renovation where possible and feasible, but they are not built or intended to fix badly designed models or clean up neglected systems. The tools will transfer objects based on XML files via RFC from SAP BW Release 7.30 to 7.50 (on SAP HANA or Any-DB), and SAP BW/4HANA 2021 to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, SAP BW bridge.
