The objective of Business Data Warehousing (BDW) implementation in the context of enterprise management is to standardize the structure and representation of all enterprise information, making them accessible from a single point of entry. BDW seeks to provide stand alone report generation and facilitate sophisticated analysis in a fast and cost-effective manner. The system also supports acquisition of data from a wide range of external databases and on-line sources in addition to internal data including legacy systems. Decision-makers can query the system to obtain historical as well as current information. A demonstration of the Business Information Warehouse (BW) in SAP R/3 environment will be included.
