  • Is SAP BI/BW a good module to start with?

    Absolutely! I personally started with BI/BW many years ago and loved it. I think BI/BW is a great place to start because it allows you to work with every line of business across an organization (Finance, HR, Accounting, etc.) because all of their data is in SAP BW. So you get exposure to a lot more lines of business. It’s also relatively easy to pick up as all development is done via the BW interface, no coding required.

  • How long will I get access to the course?

    Lifetime access!

  • Will I receive a certificate of completion when I finish the course?

    Yes! You will be granted a certificate of completion upon passing the end of course exam (no limit on retakes).



Alex Cotoara

This course is very good. Has theory and examples and is well structured. Rob should price this kind of information accordingly, right now it is underpriced for the amount of effort he put into it. Great job!

"Perfect course to start learning SAP BW"

Miguel Gomez

I have really enjoyed this course: It goes throw all topics with examples, explaining all the possible options and characteristics. The voice and the sound is perfect. The teacher is also very good, the explanations are clear and he always provides examples. I asked some questions during the course and he has answered me in just a few hours. To sum up, I think it is a perfect course to start learning SAP BW.

"Worth the Investment!"

Joel P

For anyone who want to learn SAP and want to expand their knowledge or break into their BW consultant career I strongly recommend this course. Rob Davis writes in his instructor biography he was trained by the best analytics mentors from various consulting firms, Robs experience and customer support reflects exactly that, very helpful, easy to understand also the metaphorical answers makes it easier to fully grasp. They make it understandable, with help from pdf`s and videos they cover all angles, also the site updates continuously. Worth the investment and a lot cheaper then SAP´s extremely high prices. Great content and concise explanation. They really go the extra mile. Greatly appreciated

"I'm telling my coworkers!"

Chris G

I’ve already told all of my coworkers to take this training. It seems like I know more about BW from HALF of your training than most know at my current employer. They don’t even want to refresh queries – they just want my department to email or post refreshed data. I’m going to try to teach them as much as possible – sign as many up for your training as possible 😉
