SAP took a unique approach to the launch of its SAP Business Warehouse 7.4 Powered by SAP HANA recently at the SAPinsider BI, HANA, and Admin 2014 conferences in Orlando, Florida. Rather than simply providing an overview of the product and functionality, a series of presenters including SAP representatives, customers, and industry analysts provided their perspectives during an all-day event March 25.
For those who couldn't make it to Orlando (or even for those who could, but would like to watch the sessions again), here's a list of the sessions and links to the recorded videos.

At the end of the series, there was a special celebration called "Have a Guinness with BW and Industry Experts" to recognize the recent world record for the largest data warehouse. But that session was for live attendees and wasn't recorded (for obvious reasons).
