Management
Gain an understanding of how using SAP HANA as part of SAP NetWeaver BW may reduce the time IT and your system spend on data loading, maintenance, and modeling.

Traditionally, most of the cost associated with managing and maintaining a data warehouse has been in the time and staffing it takes for IT departments to manage the business warehouse environment. With SAP HANA, IT departments can save time on the management and maintenance of SAP NetWeaver BW. This results in potential cost savings through reduction in expensive operational tasks (e.g., indexing and tuning), increased loading performance, simplified maintenance, and greater modeling flexibility. I elaborate on these points below.

Note
In my BI Expert article, “How SAP NetWeaver BW Running on HANA Changes Business Processes,” I discuss how SAP HANA can alter your business set-ups. The key changes for business are improved reporting performance, real-time data access, and the ability to simulate and plan faster.
