Real self-service BI for SAP BW and HANA for Pyramid Customers

Pyramid is certified by SAP to interoperate with SAP BW/4HANA. Pyramid is pending certification by SAP to interoperate with SAP HANA. Pyramid also became an official member of the SAP® PartnerEdge® open ecosystem in 2020.

SAP offers two powerful data stacks in the analytics marketplace: SAP BW and SAP HANA. One of the key challenges for SAP customers is to find a set of tools that work directly on both SAP BW and HANA technologies with modern self-service analytic capabilities while exposing all the enterprise, server-based functionality required for security and governance.

Elusive goals: complete self-service analytics and direct querying on SAP

BW offers native connectivity to the SAP ERP application and its data, with analytic capabilities that cater to that environment and its unique data footprint. HANA also comes with powerful analytic functionality that fully exploits the SAP ERP application. 

SAP customers are eager to implement an SAP-compatible BI tool that offers significant self-service functionality alongside direct querying of the SAP BW application and SAP HANA database while retaining all the benefits offered by SAP and Hana. Few companies want to lose this functionality when implementing a BI tool to work in concert with these engines.

Up to this point, SAP customers have struggled to find a suitable solution. They need to choose either from SAP’s own technologies (Business Objects, Lumira, and SAP Analytics Cloud) or look to third parties (e.g., Qlik, Power BI, Tableau, MicroStrategy, etc.). Neither route delivers a mature, fully functional self-service technology that offers “direct query” and full functionality on SAP BW and HANA

Pyramid on SAP

By delivering best-in-class functionality and performance on SAP BW without extracting or duplicating data, Pyramid preserves the full analytic power of the SAP engines, as well as the inherent security and governance.
