Competence Center SAP BI

A large number of companies now use SAP systems for the efficient and effective support of operational processes. In addition, SAP also offers a broad product portfolio that is tailored to individual needs for reporting, planning and data warehouse applications. Braincourt has been successfully implementing projects with SAP BI tools since its inception in 2000 and is a leader in the application of the latest SAP technologies.


SAP BW serves as a single point of truth for data management. Data from operative systems is extracted, transformed, harmonized and provided for the subsequent application layers via SAP BW. Depending on the technical infrastructure, the BW system can either be based on a classic database or SAP HANA (BW on HAHA) or fully integrated into the SAP HANA database (BW / 4HANA). Thanks to the interfaces provided, access to the data can be achieved with a variety of tools, which are also part of our service portfolio.
