Need to Implement P2P(Procurement to pay) SAP Ariba as source. How to Extract data from Ariba to BW?

Hi ALL, I have to implement P2P (Procure to pay) in BW using Ariba as source? Can anyone throw some light on this? Is Ariba has standard data sources like we have for MM? Also can you please let me know how to start with and any standard reports exists?

Regards,

Mukesh

    Hi,
    at this time there is no direct connection available form our acquired Cloud Solution to SAP BW on or for HANA.
    the suggested way would be smart data integration with SAP BW on/for HANA.
    See Details in the connection options here - SAP First Guidance – Implement SAP BW/4HANA in the Azure Cloud

    It sounds like Ariba has integration with ECC and S/4HANA - see the white paper

    https://www.ariba.com/resources/library/library-pages/integrating-sap-ariba-cloud-solutions-with-sap-erp-and-sap-s-4hana

    So you can then set up BW extractors from ECC (in theory)

    Hi Roland,

    One question, so according to the document I cannot Pull data directly from Ariba to BW on non HANA DB's. Am I right?

    Smart data access I believe is only for BW on HANA or B4 HANA. If I have to extract data from Ariba to BW on Non HANA DB what would be the case.

    Appreciate for your reply.

    Hello SaiMukesh
    Yes, some of the SDA adapter need the HANA DB.
    However there might be a solution via the SAP Cloud Platform as an agile platform-as-a-service (PaaS) Infrastructure
    Visit - https://cloudplatform.sap.com/index.html to find out the capabilities there.

    I will also consolidate the findings in the Document - SAP First Guidance – Implement SAP BW/4HANA in the Azure Cloud

    Best Regards Roland

    • Hello Roland,

      Would like to know if we have direct connections between ARIBA and BW on/for HANA to extract data with the latest versions? or any connectors have been released in 2018 to achieve this.

      Also, do we have direct connection between Concur and BW on/for HANA o extract data.

    • Hello Roland,

      Thanks for your prompt response, then we will have to check whether SAP Cloud Platform Integration or SDA can be used to extract data from ARIBA into BW on/for HANA.
