Hi everybody,

As you may know, SAP continues to place strategic focus on SAP BW as our fundamental enterprise data warehousing application offering. To that end, we are pleased to announce the release of SAP BW 7.3, SP8, a service pack release that builds upon your investment in SAP BW 7.3 by adding even more capabilities and functionality to take you to the next level of performance, ease of use and flexibility in SAP BW.

SAP NetWeaver BW Support Package 8 includes many enhancements that came from direct customer feedback during the early ramp-up period of SAP BW 7.3 powered by SAP HANA. In this context, additional integration scenarios have been added between SAP BW on HANA and HANA Data Mart use-cases for further flexibility as well as to enable the “Not-active” data concept for optimized RAM sizing and lower TCO. Further enhancement include support for converting existing SPOs to HANA-optimized DSOs and InfoCubes and partitioning of Write-Optimized DSOs.

See this presentation for all the details.

Best regards,
