SAP integration with BOARD

Unleash the power of your SAP data

How it works

The BOARD Connector for SAP is our tailored solution for customers that are using the BOARD platform for analysis, simulation, and planning. With the BOARD Connector, SAP data from the various modules can easily be incorporated into the customer’s analytics and planning processes.

As part of the Xtract family, the BOARD Connector comes with same, proven SAP data extraction capabilities as our other Xtract products.

With the BOARD Connector Designer, the user can connect to one or more SAP systems and configure the SAP data extracts with only a few mouse clicks - no coding or scripting required. Data preview and logging functionality assist in the development of the various SAP data pulls.

Once a data extract is defined, the BOARD user can manually trigger or automate the loading of SAP data directly within the familiar BOARD tools.

Existing SAP data feeds can be easily modified to include new data elements to accommodate your changing business requirements. No need for expensive and time-consuming ABAP coding cycles.

The BOARD Connector for SAP supports both large volume data extraction as well as continuous, incremental SAP data feeds. Multiple SAP data extracts can run concurrently, by different users. With built-in security, you will have control over who has access to your sensitive SAP data.

These components will help you to achieve your goals!

Reliable, high-performance extraction of SAP tables (transparent tables, cluster tables, and views) is easier than ever before thanks to the Table component.

This component comes with our custom ABAP package for table extraction but also supports standard SAP function modules. What´s more, joining SAP tables prior to extraction via Open SQL statement is also possible. This replaces the need for manually creating views or SAP queries on the SAP side.

These components are the crème de la crème when it comes to extracting data from SAP. With the help of the DeltaQ component, users can extract what are known as SAP DataSources. The main benefit of DataSources is the integrated mechanism for incremental data extraction — a function also employed by SAP BW.

DeltaQ and ODP enable the use of DataSources and thus eliminate the need for an SAP BW. The ODP component is Theobald Software’s response to the new SAP ODP extraction types. This component can also be used to extract SAP DataSources, as well as CDS views, BW/4HANA objects, and other data sources.

With the BAPI component, it is possible to call BAPIs and RFC function modules. At the same time, the component can be used as both the data source and—depending on the Xtract product—the target (data write-back). Users can extract or populate the BAPI’s import/export and table parameters.

This component makes it possible to use ABAP reports as a data source. This guarantees the extraction and thus continued use of existing, customer-specific ABAP reports or of standard reports provided by SAP. Users can simply adopt existing reports and their respective business logic instead of wasting time to recreate them outside of SAP.

The Query component lets users extract SAP ERP queries right from the SAP system. There is no need to tediously recreate existing queries and their respective business logic outside of SAP, because you can simply continue using them instead.

The Hierarchy component makes it possible to extract hierarchies from an SAP BW system. At the same time, this component gives users the option to extract the data in its original parent/child format. The hierarchies can also be broken up, however, and the individual hierarchy levels extracted as column headers in a flat table.

Through Open Hub Services (OHS), SAP provides an extraction method for a range of BW source objects. OHS is a particularly interesting choice when it comes to exporting mass data from SAP BW and provides an integrated delta mechanism when using SAP DTPs. Theobald Software supports the OHS component for BW/4 HANA as well.

The BW Cube component implements SAP’s OLAP BAPI interface (MDX) as well as the native BICS interface. It is therefore possible to extract traditional BW objects, such as BW or BEx queries, cubes, and MultiProvider. At the same time, the component supports both the new HANA-based BW objects and the objects of an S/4HANA embedded BW. The BW Cube component supports BEx variables and dimension filtering, thus enabling the extraction of large amounts of data with a packetizing and slicing function.
