Get ready for SAP HANA! Innovate your SAP BWA server platform


SAP BW Accelerator (SAP BWA) was the first step in bringing the innovation of in-memory to data warehousing. A portion of SAP NetWeaver BW data was replicated to a separate ‘accelerator’ server in order to improve query performance in SAP NetWeaver BW.

Although many customers have already started implementing SAP HANA, there is still a need for existing analytics based on SAP BWA (Business Warehouse Accelerator) until migration towards SAP BW4/HANA will have been completed. To facilitate the path towards HANA with a refresh based on latest Intel Broadwell technology, this innovative offering from Fujitsu and SUSE helps to support a step-wise approach to SAP HANA with full investment protection.
