Abstract

The goal of this research is to utilize the in-memory technology in implementing a data warehouse using the SAP ERP Simulation data. Operational data currently play an important role in running the simulation as part of making critical decisions or adjusting company’s strategy. Those data are getting bigger in size as the simulation progresses, so it is essential to have a more reliable data warehouse. The adoption of in-memory technology in data warehouse design and data modeling would not only solve the problem, but could provide numerous benefits. At the end of this research, major components in data warehouse are expected to be created including data mart schema (star schema), tables, and various views needed for data visualization. Furthermore, the data warehouse is expected to connect to and work seamlessly with other different visualization tools, such as SAP Predictive Analysis and SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio.
