More About This Textbook

Overview

"A Quick Guide to SAP BW Performance Tuning" is a resource designed for the SAP-BW professional community, including solution architects, developers, system administrators, project managers and consultants.
This book is the result of many years of knowledge and experience gained by the authors in managing SAP-BW systems, and a response to the multiple queries initiated by participants in their SAP-BW training sessions. The information is presented in a simple and clear format, making it accessible to a broad audience.
The book opens with a chapter focusing on tools which assist in identifying possible performance bottlenecks, and how to go about implementing them. A chapter on BW Statistics is included to help users appreciate the value of this excellent component within SAP-BW, and leverage it for enhanced performance. Each aspect of performance, from Extraction to Reporting, is covered in detail in subsequent chapters.
Furthermore, the book covers technical aspects relevant to system behavior, such as indexes and SQL statements, providing a context or further evaluation of performance. Clear examples and diagrammatics simplify these technical topics.
This book is the definitive resource guide in SAP-BW performance tuning which no professional can afford to be without.

    You need not be a real Techie

    One should look at this book as on-line trouble shooting guide. Simple and easy understandable language. Nice presentation. The step-by-step instructions will help even a non-techie to understand and take basic corrective actions. Will go a long way in creating value for all BW consultants. Full marks to the authors for making the subject simple.

    Excellent Reading

    Excellent Reading!!! I must say that the language used by the authors is simple to read and understand which makes the reading more interesting. This is one book which would come very handy to all BW consultants for constant reference while working on any BW project since there are quite a few ¿Tips and Tricks¿ which would enrich any BW consultants¿ knowledge and role. Chapters on ¿Design of Info Providers¿ and ¿Query Designing¿ will go a long way in creating value for all BW consultants. Kudos to the authors for writing on a complicated subject in such a simple manner.

    Value for Moeny

    I found the book extremely useful for appreciating the smallest to the biggest changes one can make in the SAP-BW system to improve the performance tuning. The authors have detauled some of the basic concepts like Type of Index (BitMap & B-tree) in a very easy language. I would recommend this book to everyone connected to SAP-BW implementation or maintenance.

    Really Useful Book on BW

    I am working in BW area for quite a long time and I have handled number of projects on this. Performance is one of the major issues which we need to consider as data volume grows day by day in any BW system. This is what this book explains very nicely and in very easy manner. Few things like how to handle very long running extraction, whether we have a scope to improve this or not. I like the way SQL Execution is shown. This really helps any BW consultant to improve extraction performance. While doing initial loading we normally face challange as data volume is big. Small things like Number Range buffer which can boost loading performance are explained step by step from how to find our Number Range Object to How to Buffer it. Modeling designing techniques are also explained in simple way. Some of the real life examples are given for how to use technical content in a better way. At least I found this book really helpful.
