In his TechEd / SAPPHIRE NOW keynote, Vishal invited Red Bull to show the first BW-on-HANA system running at a customer site. Through the efforts of experts from both organizations, many best practices were share to provide an excellent showcase of how things can work out if properly planned and implemented.
Watch the demo here (10 min) and read below to learn more about the process.
The most important and impressive message is that the overall process took 10 days for the project to complete. A more detailed run-down can be seen from the slide (thankfully provided by our colleagues from Red Bull).
For the image below - software-related activities have been lined up on the "left-hand side" while hardware-related activities can be seen on the right.
The foundation for a migration process is the E2E implementation guide for SAP Netweaver BW 7.3, powered by SAP HANA. It is available on the SAP Service Marketplace; you need to have a registered user to access those documents. The E2E guide lists all fundamental decisions that you need to take and links to the appropriate and more detailed guides that are necessary to complete the effort.
Just last week, John Appleby from our partner Bluefin Solutions ran through a similar migration exercise and documented his experience in a blog entry First Impressions on SAP NetWeaver BW 7.3, powered by SAP HANA - amazing. Have a look as it holds additional details of the process.
