Data extraction & source system performance


Dear Experts,

I have a ECC as source system in APO BW

And there is this hypothesis .

"Frequent scheduling of data loads from infosources to infocubes MAY put load on ECC system".

e.g. I have a datasource for extracting sales data. I decide to extract sales data everyday. Lets say I use a datasource readily delivered by SAP.

- Does this cause performance issues in ECC ?

- Is this really the case that scheduling of data load to data targets in BW makes queries on SD tables and hence can cause unwanted locking of data?

- What is the right way of explaining this phenomenon to someone who has never heard of APO and BW ?
