However, R/3 users do have an advantage insofar as the data that is required for SAP SEM from the operational applications is already available in R/3 in a well structured form. It should be noted that in the area of management support, the processing of external data and information (especially unstructured) is becoming more and more important. SAP SEM includes a component specifically for handling this type of information. SAP SEM will use SAP Business Information Warehouse technology. This means that it can be operated stand-alone or within the framework of an existing SAP BW Data Warehouse.
