Faster Queries in SAP BW

In the case of very large volumes of data it is worthwhile using the PBS nearline solutions with column-oriented database technology. When doing this, you can use either SAP Sybase IQ or Vectorwise by Actian as the analytics server. The column-oriented database technology enables an even greater degree of data compression and significantly more speed in reporting than is possible without a separate database in the ADK version
