From five minutes to twelve seconds

Stiebel Eltron, one of the leading manufacturers of domestic and system technology, optimized their SAP Business Warehouse (SAP BI) system through the use of the Datavard BW Fitness Test™. Both the detailed analysis and the benchmarking resulted in clear actionable recommendations on how to optimize system performance and decrease data volume. These recommendations were implemented in the systems during operations. Query runtimes for reporting improved from up to five minutes to 12 seconds and the systems data volume was reduced by a third. The overall project runtime was only five days, including the implementation of most of the measures for improvement. Stiebel Eltron’s SAP BI system is not only now future proof, but internal know­how was also able to be built through the course of the project which will lead to further improvements of system performance.

BW Fitness Test™ not only helped us implementing recom­mendations but also built up internal know­how.
