Share Article

Dolphin lands the first implementation of BW archiving for SAP NetWeaver (TM) Business Warehouse (BW) on the SAP HANA (TM) platform. One of the nation's largest electric utilities has selected Dolphin, an SAP software partner, and the nearline storage solution with analytics from PBS Software GmbH to optimize the performance of their BW application.

Managing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) was a key factor for this utility.

One of the nation's largest electric utilities, serving more than 14 million people in Southern California, has selected Dolphin, a solution provider and SAP software partner, for the company’s archiving strategy for SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (BW) on the HANA platform.

To manage the database size of their new SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (BW) powered by SAP HANA, the utility will be using a nearline storage solution with analytics to manage database size and ensure optimal performance and control costs.

This is the first implementation of SAP NetWeaver BW archiving and analytics on SAP HANA in North America for Dolphin and PBS Software GmbH, a leading provider of SAP add-on software in the areas of data archiving, extraction and storage. The solution, PBS CBW NLS, has been certified for integration with SAP NetWeaver via SAP integration scenario NW-BW-NLS 7.3 on the SAP HANA platform. Dolphin is the implementation partner and reseller of PBS products in the Western Hemisphere.

“Managing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) was a key factor for this utility,” said Dr. Werner Hopf, CEO of Dolphin and director of the company’s archiving practice. “SAP NetWeaver BW on SAP HANA implementation with PBS nearline storage is critical to reducing costs. With PBS nearline storage, the company can aggressively self-manage database growth, setting parameters that keep the database size flat which controls cost—a tangible benefit.”

Dolphin’s portfolio of data volume management solutions and services specifically for SAP applications simplify data archiving and maintain rapid, transparent access to the information businesses need to thrive.
