Learn about Spaces and the New Design


What are Spaces

A space is an independent and secure virtual work environment created by an administrator, in which members can acquire, prepare, and model data. The administrator can manage various settings like allocating resources to limit how much storage is available with dedicated spaces for departments, LOB’s, data domains, project teams, individuals, or other usage scenarios.

Moreover, spaces enable data sharing between IT, business units, and projects to connect global and local data.

How To Create a Space in SAP Data Warehouse Cloud

Log on to your tenant, on the side navigation area click Space Management, and click on Create (see Figure 1).
