How to access BW tables in S/4 HANA?

Dear users,

I have a situation where I need to access data from BW in S/4HANA. What are the options for this specific use case? Is it possible to use SDA?

Thanks!

Kind regards
Florian

    Hello Florian,

    Yes it is possible to integrate BW into S/4HANA with SDA. Please check this excellent blog by Muruga MuthuKrishnan:

    S/4 HANA – BW 7.5 Integration with SDA as Data Provisioning

    Best regards

      Hello Frank,

      thanks for the quick response. Unfortunately, the recommended article only shows "how data from S/4 HANA can be extracted to BW 7.5". I need it the other way around => from BW into S/4 HANA. I don't get how to make this work.

      Kind regards,
      Florian

    SDA (Smart Data Access) or SDI (Smart Data Integration) is the best option for connecting data sources to HANA databases. You can query target data source on the fly via SDI sources

    This is like defining Linked Servers to SQL Server database instances.

    Check the latest update from SAP. SDA is not the future proof solution for S/4 and BW/4HANA integration.

      Hello Muruga, could you provide a link concerning this topic? What else is the future proof solution for S/4 and BW/4HANA integration?
