SAP Data Warehouse Cloud is the first out-of-the-box enterprise-ready software-as-a-service (SaaS) data warehouse in the cloud. It unites all your data sources in one solution while maintaining the security, trust, and semantic richness of your information.
With SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, you get the simplicity, speed, and qualities of SAP HANA without any of the upfront costs. It will be the first native in-memory data warehouse as-a-service in the cloud.
This solution offers pre-built industry and LOB business content, templates and models. This content provides business users with accelerators to get faster access to results and alleviate the dependency on IT. Business users can leverage the standard content or adapt/extend it to better fit their business requirements and share it with others in the organization. Analytics capabilities are built-in thanks to a limited version of SAP Analytics Cloud included with SAP Data Warehouse Cloud.
SAP Data Warehouse Cloud is aflexible and open platform, so it’s designed to be used regardless of what your data landscape is. Here are three common use cases.
On-premisemodernization via hybrid scenarios. Thanks to the integration of on-prem solutions(e.g., SAP S/4HANA, SAP BW/4HANA, SAP HANA, and others), it’s easy to extend on-prem data with cloud data to enhance models for broader insights.
Self-service data modeling via data marts. Extract, replicate, or federate data from different sources to create new models.
Single access layer to all your data. Clean and map data from various sources to provide a consistent view of all data.
Yes, SAP Data Warehouse Cloud provides this. The application layer empowers business users to create business relevant and user-friendly content.
SAP Analytics Cloudprovides Business Intelligence (BI), Planning, and Augmented Analytics capabilities in one cloud-based solution. It delivers analytics embedded within SAP business workflows and enterprise applications.SAP Data Warehouse Cloud is more than an analytical tool, as it is a seamlessly integrated end-to-end solution.

This means that users can quickly get started turning their data into useful insights. For the full capabilities of SAP Analytics Cloud, a separate license must be purchased.

SAP Data Warehouse Cloud has a defined set of public interfaces, including SQL, dedicated SAP Data Warehouse Cloud API and SAP Enterprise Information Management (EIM) – SAP HANA smart data integration and SAP HANA smart data access capabilities for ingesting and delivering data.
This gives you great flexibility when connecting existing SAP HANA data warehouses to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud. SAP Data Hub and SAP Data Intelligence can be used to provide extensive data integration and orchestration capabilities.
In addition to the built-in BI capabilities provided by SAP Analytics Cloud, SAP Data Warehouse Cloud provides an open API to support SAP products as well as third-party BI tools.
SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and BW/4 HANA connect to give you flexibility. Once connected,you can choose to move data from BW/4 HANA to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud.Alternatively, the data can stay where it is, and SAP Data Warehouse Cloud can consume the datasets directly from BW/4 HANA – without replicating them. You can also try a hybrid approach and leave some data on-prem in BW/4 HANA and put some in the cloud in SAP Data Warehouse Cloud.
SAP Data Warehouse Cloud offers straight-forward packaging. The solution offers a single product with all features at a single price point based on capacity units. This is unlike any other complex offering in the market. You don’t need to compare editions, features, and capabilities along with the different costs associated with them.
In the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud calculator, capacity units are the number of units consumed by the usage of the compute and storage services in SAP Data Warehouse Cloud. With this calculator, you can see how many you need.
