Workflow from ECC6.0 to BI


im a newbie.Could anything explain me abt :

1.What is ECC exactly and how it talks to BI layer.????

2.if a transation happens in ECC, will it get passed to BI and can reports be generated out of the BI data?

3. Can the transaction data be synchronised with the BI data without latency.

4.Can reports be created in ECC itself , without taking the round trip of BI and then reporting ?

5.Workflow followed from ECC 6.0 to BI

Much Thanks

    ECC 6.0 is ERP central component(ERP), advanced version of sap. It has two version: ecc 5.0, ecc6.0.

    kernel, support pack and all other tools are very much advance in ecc6.0 compare to any other version of supports netweaver component also like BI,XI,EP.

    In ECC6.0 all components are integerated in a single software.All data warehouse products provide flexibility and good tools to build strategic reports focus on KPI. All of them also provide easy to use tools to display and organize analytic information.

    The decision about what product will be chosen will be based on how difficult is to pull (and keep updated) the data from the transactional systems behind. In other words, if you are running SAP to manage a big part of your day to day transactional system, go for BI.

      Thanks for the info,

      Can ECC6.0 itself can host Reports ???

      In case ECC6.0 is gonna be dependent on BI to host the Reports , then how about the latency.

      Will data from ECC6.0 be pushed to BI immediately or with a latency.

      Thanks N Regards
