BO 4 Integration with ECC 6

Hello Experts,

I have the requirement of provide with real time data from ECC 6 to a BO universe for reporting with Web Intelligence, if I understand correctly that can be achieve on version BO XI 3.1 using the a prototype and data federator as described in this article [INTEGRATION OF SAP R 3 WITH BO UNIVERSE USING DATA FEDERATOR CONNECTOR|]

I also read that the integration kit is now part of the default installation for BO 4 sp2 but Im not able to find the SAP ERP connector, when I try to create a new connection using the universe designer under SAP I only have:




When I check the Information Design Tool I have NW BI 7x under OLAP and MaxDB, HANA under relational.

I'm using:


BO 4 SP 2

I'm missing something? Does someone have information on how to connect DF with the ERP?

Best Regards.

    that guide is for XI 3.1 Universes - using Data Federator XI 3.1 - a different product

    in BI 4.0 SP02, the 'data federator' features you have available to you in IDT are the 'multi source universe' which give you a SAP JCo connector to BW - a relational BW-SQL driver, it's not OLAP

    if you can't see it, you need to create your connection cirectly under 'repository resources' , not pomote from projects.

    As of FeaturePack03 (ramp up starting Feb) you will get an ERP driver for connecting to ECC6 . This will go some way to addressing the fit-gap of missing features you are seeing today.

    I hope this helps.
