Transition to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud Roadmap updated – Conversion of SAP BW or SAP BW/4HANA to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, SAP BW Bridge

We have published an updated version (22Q2) of the “Transition to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud” roadmap with the latest information on the SAP Data Warehouse cloud solution and new links to supporting material for the implemenation project.

In addition, we have included information about the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, SAP BW bridge.

SAP BW bridge is a feature of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, that provides a path to the public cloud for SAP BW and SAP BW/4HANA customers. SAP offers the possibility of a tool-supported move of SAP BW or SAP BW/4HANA investments to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, SAP BW bridge.

In the activity Strategic Planning in the Discover phase we explain in task “Understand the Benefits of SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, SAP BW bridge“, why and how moving to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, SAP BW bridge, could be a successor or alternative step to moving to SAP BW/4HANA and combining it in a hybrid scenario with SAP Data Warehouse Cloud. Customers can convert from SAP BW directly or from SAP BW/4HANA (both on-premises or as private cloud edition) to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, SAP BW bridge:

In the Run phase of the roadmap, we have added an activity “Perform a Conversion to SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, SAP BW bridge” which describes the steps of a shell conversion to SAP BW bridge.

An alternative remote conversion will be available later this year and a description will then be added to the roadmap accordingly.
