Tools for custom development

Hello!

I have done some programming in MS Excel(VBA) - source data are taken from bw and erp systems. This program does complicated computation based on the source data and it takes few hours to execute. Results are later analyzed with different Excel files. Now I need to extend this program with addition source data and calculations which Excel might not handle.

What tools within the SAP NetWeaver you can suggest for custom application development?

Best Regards,

Maris Klimavicius

    Can these calculations/manipulations not be handled within BW?

      I think no, because calculations are based on different parameters, which are manually entered/changed before calculating current results.

    Hi,

    If your answer to previous question is that you cant/dont want to use SAP BI for processing of data, the first question that I'd ask you is: are you familiar with either ABAP or JAVA?

    If yes, which one? If both, which one would you prefer to work with?

    If no, then we can discuss other possibilities.

    Regards

      If you can give some more details of your current situation, such as how frequently do you need to process this data, the format of data, nature of datasets (sequential vs. random) etc, I think it would be easier to make some recommendations. Generally speaking, ABAP/WebAS would be the best bet for processing large datasets. But then you can have some specific requirements that would limit its usage. For example, my current client uses ETL tools from IBM for all their data processing/transfer needs. The consider it more of an architectural preference rather than technical. So if you have such considerations, please mention them.
