Behind each product are the version numbers, the most recent versions are mentioned first.

Can you easily determine the licensing costs of SAP HANA, SAP BW, and SAP Netweaver BW?

It is difficult to determine exactly how much a license of SAP HANA, SAP BW, and SAP Netweaver BW costs because it depends on the country, the number of users, the connectors to data sources, and at what point in the year you request a quote. If you request a quote just before the end of the fiscal period of SAP, you can probably get a decent reduction in the license cost. In addition, nowadays it is recommended to run the software in the cloud, you only pay for the actual use. The purchase cost of SAP HANA, SAP BW, and SAP Netweaver BW may not be the largest cost item, but maintenance and support do show up in your budget every year.

What makes SAP ETL & Data Integration worth watching

In our study, we see that SAP in the field of ETL & Data Integration software has a few specific features which may be the deciding factor in purchasing. This makes SAP Data Integration more or less unique: master data rule mining, replication model, financial data quality, master data distribution, and data quality remediation.
