    WHAT IS BW ? The reporting, analysis, and interpretation of business data is of central importance to a company in guaranteeing its competitive edge, optimizing processes, and enabling it to react quickly and in line with the market. As a core component of SAP NetWeaver, the SAP Business Information Warehouse (SAP BW) provides data warehousing functionality, a business intelligence platform, and a suite of business intelligence tools that enable businesses to attain these goals. Relevant business information from productive SAP applications and all external data sources can be integrated, transformed, and consolidated in SAP BW with the toolset provided. SAP BW provides flexible reporting and analysis tools to support you in evaluating and interpreting data, as well as facilitating its distribution. Businesses are able to make well-founded decisions and determine target-orientated activities on the basis of this analysis For the Navimo group , BW is implemented only for Sales data analysis. However in the close future with BW will provide other datas like Financial datas, inventories , purchase datas INTRODUCTION - Integration of transactional datas (Invoices and open orders) from SAP towards BW is done every Saturday morning and every end of month. - Basic datas (customers, part numbers..) are integrated into BW every night. A change on an item description or a change on item categories into SAp will be available the next day into BW. Note : Basic datas (customers, SKU)are not time dependant datas. Eg : If a part number move from a product category to another on 04/2006, a report focused on month 01/2006 which is launch on 04/2006 will display the part number in the NEW product category changed on 04/2006.
