with your data
Data analytics are critical in extracting value from your data and gaining
a competitive advantage. However, for an organization to extract value
efficiently, data needs to be well managed so employees can easily retrieve,
model, and analyze it. A data warehouse is purpose-built for quick data
retrieval and data analysis, enabling business users to access and retrieve
the data they need for analysis.
For existing SAP Analytics Cloud customers, SAP Data Warehouse Cloud is
the perfect way to empower your business users to model data and speed up
analytics with access to all of your data – even in real-time. SAP Analytics
Cloud connects seamlessly to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud with native
integration. Investing in SAP Data Warehouse Cloud has no upfront costs
and is fully maintained by SAP.
SAP Data Warehouse Cloud consolidates all your data, providing a single point of trusted access to your data regardless of its source, age, or size. This solution can replicate and store large amounts of data from remote sources, or you can upload large datasets from local files, like .CSV. Data tracing and monitoring allow you to identify any errors in your uploads. SAP Data Warehouse Cloud’s virtualization also enables data to be accessed remotely without copying or moving the data.
Without a data warehouse, it’s hard to ensure data quality and as the volume and number of data sources grow, the complexity of your data environment can hinder performance and analytics. With SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, IT can consolidate data and leverage ETL/ELT services like pipelining or data transformation to create a robust high-performing data layer.
IT or business users can then define data access by creating and governing complex data models. At the same time, SAP Data Warehouse Cloud’s Business Layer maps business concepts to the underlying data so more business users can understand and model data themselves.
SAP Data Warehouse Cloud empowers business users to import, connect, and model data themselves. An intuitive UI and the Business Layer help make data more understandable. SQL and graphical drag-and-drop, in turn, allow for enhanced self-service data modeling. The models can be consumed directly in SAP Analytics Cloud.
SAP Data Warehouse Cloud also augments your modeling by enabling you to import larger local datasets and create more complex models. If a data model proves to be valuable for the entire organization, it’s easy for IT to help by taking over maintenance and enhancing the model—without having to rebuild the entire model in a different environment.
