When Does it Make Sense Exposing SAP BW/4HANA Models to Power BI
Despite numerous limitations it is possible connecting SAP applications (including SAP S/4HANA and SAP BW/4HANA) to MS Power BI. Existing Power BI users may benefit from a familiar self-service BI tool and its powerful capabilities. Each scenario requires thorough analysis though, whether the benefits of such integration outweigh the drawbacks and limitations associated with it. We should also keep in mind that certain scenarios may require Power BI Premium capacity licenses in order to accommodate larger datasets, more frequent refreshes, transport capabilities, etc.
