Key Take Away
S/4HANA Embedded Analytics = Transactions + Operational Reporting.
Explore & understand the S/4HANA VDM. Extend public CDS views or build
new ones. Check Query performance as you build the models.
BusinessObjects tools (on-premise and cloud) can access S/4HANA VDM to
create sophisticated visualization.
BW is not dead! BW/4HANA is recommended for Enterprise Data Warehouse
solution.
