What is SAP BW/4HANA

SAP BW/4HANA is a data warehouse that includes the use of the in-memory database SAP HANA. Thus, SAP BW/4HANA can bundle different data sources (from SAP, as well as non-SAP applications) and enables a compressed view on one platform. Complex analysis and evaluation of all company data across different data sources is enabled.
