SAP BW Reporting: Everything You Want to Know

Business intelligence tools are intended to support users in understanding the enterprise performance and to help users make appropriate decisions based on their understanding. One critical aspect here that the user should note is the need to give all users an equal insight into the enterprise—an insight based on consistent data and standard analytical definitions. For consistent enterprise control, a unified view of information for all users is indispensable. On the one hand, this is achieved by the SAP Business Information Warehouse (SAP BW) functionality for extraction and data warehousing via a consistent data basis. Conversely, queries can provide a unified and flexible analysis platform according to the Single Point of Truth concept. This means that within an enterprise, a piece of information (or a dataset) exists once as a reference and cannot be falsified by locally changed variants. Essentially, a query is a database research action with interesting additional functionality like currency scenarios, complex calculation options, and analysis functions.
