the book

This Website provides additional information and resources to the book SAP BW on HANA Step-by-step by Tobias Hagen and Klaus Freyburger. Disclaimer: This website has no connection to SAP SE and its affiliates. All SAP Logos and product names are registered trademarks.

This book has emerged from lectures and courses given in recent years by the authors at their universities and shows how theoretical concepts of Business Intelligence are applied in SAP BW on HANA.
The authors developed a set of case studies guiding the student through the complete process of building an end-to-end BI system, based on a simple but realistic business scenario. The cases are designed in such a way that the application of many concepts such as staging, core data warehouse, data mart, reporting, etc., in SAP BW on HANA is introduced and demonstrated step by step.

Target Audience
The cases are primarily designed for SAP BW beginners, who want a first introduction and hands-on experience with the latest version of BW on HANA. We briefly touch the general concepts of Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing. These concepts are discussed in many excellent books out in the market, which we don’t want to replace. The reader should either already be familiar with these concepts or should be willing to use the references we provide. Also, this book can NOT replace a complete consultant training for BW, but it can serve as a starting point for a journey into the world of SAP BW on HANA.
