Hi Prabhu.

What you said is right in SAP BW ( Not on SAP S/4 Hana with BI or ERP system). Within 5 to 10 years time SAP going to support only SAP S/4 Hana (other DB slowly going to end or stop the support from SAP). So as earlier communicated by Tammy you can follow the Open. sap.com site to take free online courses

Regards

Sriram

SAP BW running with a HANA database is not S4/Hana. I worked on it 2017-2020. What you need to know is HANA for BW, which is quite distinct.

The main differences are:

  • ADSO
  • Push down of DTPs
  • SQL Script HANA expert routines.

Apart from that, there's no variation from BW using Oracle.

ABAP is used everywhere whereas BW is not. I recommend learning more about BW/4HANA (there are free open SAP courses on BW/4HANA at open.sap.com) and SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, since the cloud is the future.

I don't think anyone can make the decision for you other than yourself, so this is why I recommend looking at the free Open SAP courses (open.sap.com)

In addition, to do BW well, good ABAP skills are a definite benefit.

Question is : is BW the better bet to do on the future ?

I would be interested to see the sales trend of this product among ECC/S4 customers.

I think BW will decline. There's too many competing products. However, the decline will be slow. Too much invested already. Migrating BW is an entire universe of pain beyond migrating away from ECC/S4HANA
