Part I. Guided Tours

In Part I, we will tour basic SAP BW (Business Information Warehouse) functionalities using a simplified business scenario—sales analysis.

After introducing the basic concept of data warehousing and giving an overview of BW, we create a data warehouse using BW and load data into it. We then check data quality before creating queries and reports (or workbooks, as they are called in BW). Next, we demonstrate how to use an SAP tool called Profile Generator to manage user authorization.

After finishing the guided tours, we will appreciate BW's ease of use and get ready to explore other BW functionalities.
