Gathering all the business data, storing, managing, and complying with industry standards is paramount to sustaining the competitive edge. And to excel in the marketplace, businesses must harness all these data streams as they’re endless sources of intelligence, customer insights, opportunities, value, and innovation. This is possible only with an all-inclusive center of excellence (COE) cloud data platform.
Legacy and inefficient data platforms like SAP, hamper organization’s growth with its siloed and tangled architecture. The massive growth of data-intensive applications demands a scalable enterprise data warehouse. Unfortunately, SAP-centric data warehouse is not!
Apparently, businesses thriving for data literacy, democratization, analytics maturity, and insights-driven culture must move out of SAP-centric data warehouse!
In this blog post, we have outlined the solid reasons why you must move out of SAP-centric data warehouses to sustain in the data-driven marketplace!
SAP-centric warehouse works optimally only if your entire business is built on SAP product suite, which is close to impossible. With all this fragility spanning, you must still pay for maintenance, software upgrades, counterparts, and highly skilled resources with strong vendor lock-in from SAP!
If you’re an existing SAP BW user, you may be hesitant to make the move to SAP BW/HANA suite. It demands huge licensing costs, migration, and maintenance efforts.
The process is more cumbersome, tiring, and expensive!
Beyond all these bumps, SAP data warehouse has rigid data formats, inefficient compute architecture, complexity in data transformations, and huge data processing.
With lots of siloed data products in SAP, it’s obvious that you’ll take a longer time to market and insights. Implementing DataOps & MLOps culture will become a struggle in SAP-centric business warehouses. In turn, this will have an impact on your timely business & strategic decisions, which are critical in realms such as healthcare, manufacturing, finance, sales, and so on.
Upgrades are necessary for every software product, but not too frequently. Semi-yearly rollouts and interconnected systems worsen SAP-centric data warehouse much more. This becomes a daunting task with lots of investment, planning, implementation, testing, and deployment going on.
These short intervals mystify organizations without even analyzing and experiencing real success factors. Your organization ends up adopting upgrades in a loop without having the clarity of business impact and delayed innovation.
The integrity of tools, resources, and third-party SaaS is quintessential to achieving single-source-of-truth and democratizing data. SAP evidently puts down customers in this aspect!
Unlike other leading cloud data platforms, SAP is not equipped with native connectors to connect diverse source touchpoints, tools, and resources. SAP DWC is reluctant to third-party AI, ML, and other business intelligence tools.
“Your data specialists must be a polymath of all SAP products and master of SAP DWC/BW/4HANA”!
Managing SAP data management suite demands intensive proficiency in terms of institutional knowledge, sentimental data processing, predictive capability, analytics, AI, and SAP’s overall product suites. And with these holistic skillsets, you end up paying wholesome paychecks to the SAP team.
SAP is experiencing a highly volatile market and so the professionals are also switching to distinct technologies & skillsets to sustain the marketplace. So, even if you make the move from SAP BW to SAP DWC, you’ll have a hard time hiring SAP DWC consultants!
You may be in the nightmare of purchasing SAP products with a lifetime license. Believe it or not, you have loads of shockwaves with a hefty and hidden cost for its platform upgrades, maintenance, and support.
SAP migration, modernization, and maintenance will take your wholesome capital investments with slapping limitations in elasticity, computational power, velocity, efficiency, and integrity!
If you’re foreseeing your organizations with insights-driven culture, then you must enforce robust security features and functionalities. But the existing SAP customers are concerned about attaining the row-level and object-level security of data warehouse and BI reports.
The ultimate truth is that most of the modern cloud data warehouses today can bridge all these gaps in SAP-centric data warehouse seamlessly! The benefits are endless!
