Today, many companies face a situation where their SAP Business Warehouse (BW) has been in service for many years. It is becoming increasingly complex to manage with an unacceptable time to market. We will walk you through an insurance company's journey to overcome this challenge. In the initial state, BW has a well-established history of long-term experience and know-how. However, a thorough assessment of the pros and cons of the platforms from a business perspective and on a technical level leads to the strategic decision to migrate from BW to Databricks Platform. Reimplementing the company’s most complex use cases from BW on Databricks, many benefits were proven, such as improved performance, automated ETL processes, enhanced self-service capabilities, and reduced overall costs. Having further progressed, we share insights and learnings and give an outlook on innovative use cases that are now becoming feasible with Databricks.
