SAP Business Warehouse for the BusinessObjects Community Episode 1

Hi everyone,

Welcome to another Diversified Semantic Layer podcast series.

I’m excited to be joined by Ethan Jewett, a fellow SAP Mentor from Wisconsin.  This podcast series focuses on explaining SAP Business Warehouse for the classic BusinessObjects community, and aims to show by example how Business Warehouse can be utilised as an Enterprise Data Warehouse, even without a dependent SAP ERP system.

Over several podcast episodes, Ethan and myself will build a BW system with two separate data sources, and begin building the foundations for an Enterprise Data Warehouse.  We will leverage BusinessObjects technologies such as Data Services, and the BusinessObjects Enterprise platform, to show how the BW and BusinessObjects can work together.  Lastly, we will discuss how BW has specific functionality which can add many benefits to data warehouse projects.

We hope you enjoy the series, and please feel free to comment and ask questions which we can incorporate into the series.
