Overview

This blog post is part of a series where we will be looking at a few simple use cases and basics when using SAP BW bridge for SAP Datasphere. The purpose of this series is for you to have a walkthrough of how SAP BW bridge, SAP Datasphere, and SAP Analytics Cloud can work together.

In Part 3, we will be looking at how SAP Analytics Cloud integrates with SAP BW bridge for SAP Datasphere.
