3rd party and BW connection - Issues and suggestions


Hi experts,

this will be my first time organizing connection and data load, from third party ERP system, to our SAP BW.

Issue which bothers me the most is master data mapping because 3rd party ERP has their own customer, material etc. master data. For example if they have some material and customer number which can't be mapped with one on our ERP (because it doesn't exists in our system), do I have to create it our system first so it can be mapped? Do I have to create all master data from 3rd party that does not have appropriate mapping pair on our system? Which is the right procedure here?

Beside mentioned above and technical issues is there any other aspect I should be aware of while preparing transfer of data form 3rd party software?
