Integrating BW and MS-SQL

Dear All ,

I would like to know about the replicating the data from SAP BW into MS-SQL Server. Since the core DW will be BW ?

- Reason for the replication is to report in Power BI ?

- Is this good to go with the approach ?

- How about the maintenances ?

In case failure of loads / inconsistence of data , How easy to manage / handle especially when it is critical system ?

Is anyone practising this approach for large enterprise reporting. Both Fresh // Existing Data warehouse scenario ?

Below are some article about establishing the connection.

MS- Connector :

Integrating using the Open hub ?

Please provide the valuable comments.

Thanks ,

    Hi Senthilkumar,

    This is too big a subject for an SCN posting. Consider getting a consultant to help.

    (Yes, I am available).

    Here are some points to consider

    1) Without BW and Bex, you lose

    a) Language text conversion

    b) Currency conversion

    c) Unit of Measure conversion

    2) Every NetWeaver system, including ECC, contains a BW module. If you really want to make MS-SQL Sever your EDW (Enterprise Data Warehouse), consider leveraging the BW myself system in ECC to install required BI Content extractors and use process chains to post output to Open Hub destinations within the ECC system. I would keep the objects as few and as simple as necessary to get the raw data into your MS-SQL Sever EDW, and perform the transformations in the EDW.

    Please don't forget to record your final solution and to mark the question as answered.

    Good luck,

    John Hawk
