I am looking for a course/education on SAP BI geared towards a DBA.

In our company, we have a Basis Team which is completely segregated from our DBA team, as well as a separate BI development team. One DBA handles HANA for ECC and another DBA handles HANA for BI. Both DBAs have had formal training on HANA in general and we have about 3 years of experience. Our BI system is becoming more widely used and a lot of issues and questions are arising where I am realizing that we need education. All of the courses I see that are available from a BI perspective seem geared towards the developer. I am looking for a general overview of BI, with a DBA twist to it. For example, who normally handles partitioning of tables, and how is that done? In our other DB environments, this is done by a DBA; for HANA this is causing a conflict of roles as to who should do this.

Hi Diane - I recommend BW360 - see or if using BW on HANA

If the courses aren't offered in your area you can access the materials online with a SAP Learning Hub subscription -

Many moons ago I took BW360 - and I am not a DBA expert but at the time it was a big help

Thanks, Tammy. I will definitely check into that option. Also good info about the SAP Learning Hub subscription, in case that course is not available in the US.
