Case Study: Moving Analytics and Data Warehousing to the Cloud - An early adopter’s perspective

With the introduction of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud (DWC) SAP customers have a new option for building a scalable, flexible, and open native cloud data warehouse solution that integrates with existing SAP Business Warehouse (BW) and SAP Analytics Cloud implementations. Businesses using SAP DWC as a virtual data integration layer can connect to a broad range of sources and employ multiple data modeling possibilities to carry out a wide range of calculations and transformations. But how can organizations merge and harmonize all of their systems and data models in a meaningful way while reducing manual consolidation effort? And how can they leverage DWC to extend their data models with external data, or use the solution to conduct its own analyses, or shape the data-to-insight path most effectively? Attend this session to hear how PwC leveraged DWC as a virtual Data Integration Layer connected to a broad range of sources, linking visualization within the modeling for fast, secure results and providing a single point of information to the end user. You will learn from an early DWC adopter how to:
- Evaluate and understand the integrations of DWC in their specific context
- Classify the DWC in an existing system landscape while ensuring that your data is protected in the cloud
- Describe the end-to-end process, from connection to sualization
