Is PI/XI needed to interact BI system with MDM?

Hi there,

We have a new BI system building in rpocess and this BI system is going to interact with ECC and MDM. To interact with MDM, does BI system needs to have PI/XI in place? Is it mandatory? Please through some light.

Thanks,

Ramana

    Hi,

    You can use MDM ABAP API for BI MDM Integration.

    Please read the following FAQ for BI-MDM Integration.

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/f0224edf-bf37-2c10-228f-c16415815c5f

    For BI to interact with MDM repository you can also read about Master - Slave repository concept.

    Regards.

    Hi Ramana,

    Basically for the BI application being developed , if data in xml files or flat files are required then you don't need PI and you will get the output directly from MDM.

    If you want to data to flow into BI system automatically and update some table then you can either go for ABAP api or Use XI and abap proxies.

    Regards

    Thank you all for your replies. We have decided to have PI/XI on seperate box and that solves the issue.
