Tools for migrating BW to HANA (BoH)

SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse powered by SAP HANA or BW on HANA (BoH) is around for some time already. It was introduced in 2nd quarter of 2012 and meanwhile it got a lot of attention. Basically BW is usual choice when companies are trying to evaluate HANA. It is natural that first they just migrate to HANA as database and after some time they start to implement new project using new BW objects leveraging HANA functionalities. Or starting of re-implementing current BW data models to use HANA can happen. Anyway BW is getting a lot of attention as first system to be migrated to HANA.

It may be very tricky for people who are new to HANA even start with basic evaluation of what does it mean to migrate to HANA. To support tasks like this SAP is providing a few tools. In further text I try to list the tools and provide basics information about them.

Tools are embraced by central tool called – BW Migration Cockpit for SAP HANA. From the cockpit other tools for migrating BW systems to HANA are accessible.
