Transferring data between SAP BW and MIS Alea- via XMLA or ODBO?

Hi together,

we are starting a BW-BPS project where the client has already an MIS ALEA solution running. In order to integrate the data from MIS ALEA into the BW information should periodically be read from MIS.

The data is then used for BPS planning and after it was changed the records should be transferred back to the MIS system.

That's the plan!

We identified the option to upload the data into BW via UD connect. In this case the MIS has to support either the BI ODBO Java Connector or the XMLA Java Connector. Is this the case?

To transfer the data back to the MIS ALEA the same method should be used. We learned that the BW is supporting bot Java connectors. Is the MIS solution able to read the information via something like UD Connect ?

Furthermore we are interested if this connection once it is established supports medium amount of data (up to 50.000 records per load) and if it is stable.

Best regards,

    Hi Matthias,

    you're right if you want to upload your data from within your MIS Alea application to BW. If you don't have to do it on user-command you can use the file (csv) interface. Just store your MIS ALEA data in a csv file, upload it on the BW application server and load it in background with an infopackage or directly in foreground from the users client pc.

    Kind regards,

      Hi Jürgen,

      thanks for your hint.

      Flat file upload is unfortunately not an option. Due to the frequency of the data transfer (daily) and the manual work that has to be done while flat file uploading we are looking into this java connectors.

      SAP as well as MIS advertise that they both support this technologies. Our development colleagues tell that it "should" work but nobody has ever seen it working.

      Hope somebody can share his/ her experience.
