Welcome to the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud Beta

Launching to over two thousand registrants on August 19, 2019, the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud Beta will give users access to the application while in-development.

Designed as a hands-on experience, the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud Beta gives you the chance to test the environment,  run trials, and see for yourself how decisive pain points can be resolved with SAP Data Warehouse Cloud.

As a Beta registrant, you will receive early access to the Community Page, exclusive Talk Shows highlighting business and IT related topics, as well as regular enablement, feedback, and Q&A sessions.

Beta program scenarios

The Beta program will cover three scenarios:

  • Hybrid
  • Cross-application warehousing
  • Semantic modeling

The scenarios are meant to familiarize you with the application and help you get started. You'll learn the basics from loading data into the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and getting it ready for visualization. You'll also learn about modeling and building the semantic layer, bottom-up.

At the end of the Beta Program, you will know how to make demand-driven requests to the data warehouse, visualize data models, and refine the semantic layer in order to make your queries to the warehouse even more precise.

Hybrid Scenario

The hybrid scenario helps you to enhance your on-premise SAP HANA system by building an analytic consumption model in SAP Data Warehouse Cloud on top of the data within your on-premise system. This way, you get the full performance of your data management system without having to move your data or put additional load on existing on-premise systems.

SAP Data Warehouse Cloud can be connected to your SAP HANA on-premise solution, thus allowing data to be accessed virtually or through replication.

The integrated Data Builder helps you create new data models within a Space, a dedicated virtual workplace. Here, you'll be able to link and correlate data sets and define facts and dimensions in order to prepare data for visualization.

Cross-Application and Semantic Modeling Scenarios

You'll experience SAP Data Warehouse Cloud's cross-application warehousing capabilities by virtually connecting to a variety of different source systems (SAP and non-SAP) and modeling data flows. On top of the combined data, you can then build an analytic consumption model and analytical story. You'll learn how to manage Space Governance, add to the Business Catalogue, refine information in the Semantic Modeller and link to existing objects.

What else to expect during the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud Beta

Beside the modeling of transformations, you can also allow data loads by third-party ETL tools. With SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, you can make specific analytic scenarios accessible to business units without meddling with the performance of your on-premise system.

The Beta program gives you the chance to test, see, and review the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud as the solution for your enterprise. After all, the Beta serves to collect early feedback from you! We take your opinion seriously, and your input will be incorporated in the generally available product.
