SAC live data connection to non-HANA ERP

Hi guys,

many of our clients have neither a BW nor a S/4 HANA system, they are running their SAP ERP on any DB (e.g. oracle). We want to adress them with SAC live analytics possibilities as well.

Import ist not a good option. Recommending universes won't be a good option neither (BI 4.2 is required, BO Server etc.). Unfortunately, oData live connection seems to be impossible for non-HANA customers.

Do you have some recommendations for these scenarios? Is anyone here working on a similar scenario?

Best,

Matthias

    One idea is to activate embedded BW inside your ERP system (ECC 6.0 ehp 5 or later) - see https://blogs.sap.com/2012/03/25/what-are-transient-providers/

    Then you could use BW/Bex queries as a live BW connection (depending on your BW release)

    Just a thought

    Thanks, Tammy, good idea. But another layer in between makes things a bit more complicated / more effort to maintain.
