The SAP Enterprise Support Advisory Council (ESAC) is our program to innovate, pilot or confirm the SAP Enterprise Support content together with a selected group of customers, to continuously optimize the SAP Enterprise Support portfolio. It covers all major cloud solutions, and it is open to all SAP Enterprise Support customers at no additional cost.

This October we will run a pilot workstream, via ESAC, will help participating members to prepare to convert your current SAP BW Netweaver system to SAP BW/4HANA, and to innovate further in the cloud with SAP Datasphere, SAP BW Bridge.

This pilot workstream is essentially an update to our existing Expert Guided Implementation (EGI) workshop which focuses purely on planning a System Conversion to SAP BW/4HANA.
You can read all about that in my recent blog post.

In the newly updated pilot session we will provide overview of SAP Datasphere and BW Bridge which will be covered in the first 2 days. The following three days will focus on empowering the conversion approaches to both data warehousing solutions i.e. Remote or Shell Conversion from BW system to SAP Datasphere with BW Bridge OR SAP BW/4HANA

We will also help you to fill out a Readiness Check for BW/4HANA and a new, soon to be released, Readiness Check for SAP Datasphere.
