a day as an SAP BW Specialist

In the role of SAP BW Specialist, you will provide specialised expertise in designing and implementing IT solutions, with a focus on programming and testing IT solutions, in line with HEMA’s digital strategy and policies, so that business processes are automated and optimised. You will ensure proper coordination with stakeholders in accordance with agreements, so that a sustainable and accessible network contributes optimally to the achievement of the organisational objectives. But above all, you will be involved in designing and implementing (new) functionalities including dashboards and/or reports in existing and new HEMA IT solutions, so that business processes are automated and optimised.

Currently, the BI team is busy transitioning from MicroStrategy to PowerBI; the availability of the data in a reliable system like SAP BW is essential for this. You will definitely be able to put your knowledge and skills to good use in this part of SAP. SAP BW is also used here as a source for specific PowerBI dashboards. Here too your support will be needed for building datasets and/or queries.

In time, the entire SAP landscape at HEMA will be upgraded to a completely new version. With our team and other SAP specialists, we will decide which version of BW we will migrate or upgrade to. This will be a long-term journey where you will learn a lot of new knowledge and skills.
