With more types of data from more sources than ever before – and the volume growing by the minute – organizations need modern data management tools to keep up with the realities of today’s digital economy. This year at SAPPHIRE NOW, SAP will be showcasing SAP BW/4HANA, a simpler, faster, and more flexible data warehouse – built for the live business.

Customers can see demos of the this next-generation data warehouse built entirely on our advanced in-memory platform, SAP HANA. To help customers successfully complete the journey to SAP BW/4HANA with the least amount of disruption to their business, we created three distinct paths to transition, complete with services and tools.

Choose Your Path

Learn how the “Transition Roadmap for SAP BW/4HANA” – available now – supports customers and the project team with descriptions of all phases and activities in the transition project as well as accelerators providing links to guides and documentation. The “Transition Roadmap to SAP BW/4HANA” describes the different paths the customer can take to transition his SAP BW system to SAP BW/4HANA – like In-Place System Conversion, Remote Conversion or New Implementation – and includes a listing of SAP service offering to support the transition to SAP BW/4HANA. At SAPPHIRE NOW, be among the first to see the upcoming tools for In-place and Remote Conversion, which are planned to become available in June 2017.
