HP has announced a new suite of business intelligence (BI) services in support of environments running the SAP NetWeaver® Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW) component, enabling clients to store increasingly large volumes of data on one system. The services will effectively help clients reduce their hardware footprint and make faster decisions by allowing quicker access to that data through a single view.
The new suite is aimed at enabling clients to connect their data and use their business information strategically through. This will also prepare HP clients with a roadmap to a single enterprise data warehouse infrastructure through an HP Neoview Advantage implementation that extends support of SAP NetWeaver BW to include non-SAP data.
The suite of services includes four separate assessment services that help customers understand the business opportunity, technology roadmap and cost benefits of a modernized and consolidated BI architecture. They include:
- Rapid Opportunity Assessment – For identifying the potential business opportunity through an expanded view of data across an enterprise;
- Technology Assessment – For developing a roadmap for a future-state HP Neoview Advantage architecture in support of SAP NetWeaver for consolidating current environments;
- Cost Benefit Assessment – For recognizing the benefits of a modernization program in support of SAP NetWeaver BW; and
- Performance Assessment – For addressing performance issues within existing environments.
“Keeping in line with our corporate strategy to use solutions from SAP as a strategic platform, we replaced our Teradata solution with SAP NetWeaver BW,” said Ralf van den Brock, chief information officer, ThyssenKrupp Materials Services. “Together with HP we developed a highly scalable enterprise data warehouse architecture, based on HP’s reference architecture for use with SAP NetWeaver BW, that enables us to react quickly and flexibly to new business requirements.”
