How does SAP S/4HANA relate to SAP Business Warehouse or SAP BW/4HANA?


SAP Business Warehouse (SAP BW) powered by SAP HANA and SAP BW/4HANA complement SAP S/4HANA  embedded  analytics,  allowing  customers  to  address  all  use  cases  from  one  data  source,  resulting in a comprehensive reporting platform.

SAP BW is a strategic solution for enterprise data warehousing (EDW) and it has been recently expanded with a native SAP HANA EDW. SAP’s next-generation EDW, SAP BW/4HANA, is a new product specifically designed to run exclusively on the SAP HANA platform and to integrate with SAP S/4HANA in the same way as SAP BW powered by SAP HANA. The new innovations taking place with SAP BW/4HANA are compatible with existing SAP BW on SAP HANA environments and focus on Big Data with enhancements to data management (such as  multi-temperature  handling  or  a  variety  of  deployments  including  SAP  HANA  Enterprise  Cloud,  Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure).

As SAP’s strategic platform for EDW, new functionality in SAP  BW/4HANA  will  further  enhance  the  integration  with  SAP  S/4HANA  (with,  for  example,  CDS extraction, aligned content objects, and models).
