SAP Data Migration Framework

Dear All, I read from TechEd that SAP data migration framework involves using Business Objects data services. SAP has provided pre-built Jobs with iDOC as target.

All is fine but I came to know that we can use Data services as staging area and modify etc our data in Data services beforw loading into SAP ECC system.

I would like to kow more about using Data services as staging area. Does that mean that when we run jobs then data is stored in iDOC(XML file) on DS or it means we can run DS in demo mode where we don't load data but keep it within memory of DS. This is different from profiling and storing execution/DQ statistics. This is storing real time data in DS and then modify/analyze and then load in SAP ECC.

Can someone explain if we can run DS in demo mode without loading data?

    OK. The answer is that Data services does not have this capability but this has been built by creating additional DB in Dataservices. So data is moved into these tables using them as Staging area. Pretty cool...hhh..
