How Did Salling Group Transform its BI Data Foundation?

At this webinar, we have invited Salling Group to tell about what has been named as one of the worlds largest retail SAP BI data migrations by moving its data warehouse to its new SAP solution BW4HANA.

Data in hand with technological evolution, increasingly powers and empowers competitive retail. Accordingly, business enterprise must also evolve to maintain a competitive edge.


In this talk, you are introduced to Salling Group’s perspective on enterprise IT and data. Best described as ‘one system, one template, one truth’, this paradigm advances over cumulative technological development. In this talk we exhibit an in-memory data warehousing capability, dependent upon a challenging migration of 70TB compressed data to a new in-memory enterprise data warehouse.


Learn how Salling Group addressed these challenges of migrating its business-critical BI system to the new BW4HANA foundation with minimal business interruption.

Target Audience

This talk is for leaders/managers, architects, and anyone with an interest in transformations.
