Vestas Extends On-Premise SAP BW with Cloud Capabilities
Simplifying data flows and empowering business users
When exploring potential solutions, Vestas was looking for compatibility. They needed to centralize and standardize their data sources, including SAP BW, SAP Analytics Cloud, and SQL, to give employees easy access to trusted data. Where possible, they wanted to avoid unnecessary data replication by using live connectivity. To reduce the time from ideation to analysis, Vestas needed self-service data access and modelling for business users in a safe and controlled environment.
With the new setup that includes SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, lead times on data are often days rather than months. With fast data access, business analyses are now much quicker while saving scarce IT resources.
With SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, we now have a tool that lets us connect the right person to the right data with a few clicks of a button. Our front-end developers and business analysts will have access to the data they need in a modeling environment that does not require deep technical knowledge. Ultimately, we want to make the experience simple for business users and enable them to access content via SAP Analytics Cloud regardless of the underlying data sources. This kind of standardization is essential in large organizations like Vestas.Kim René Vittrup, Senior Manager, Global Supply Chain, Vestas
