The main features of Xtract Universal with Power BI

Integration Architecture

Xtract Universal enables an integration between your SAP ERP or SAP BW system and Power BI. We suggest an implementation of an interim data warehouse between SAP and Power BI for this scenario. This interim data warehouse will be filled by Xtract Universal (semi-)automatically. This solution goes easy on the SAP resources and constitutes a central administration of all data which were extracted from SAP, without to contradict the self-service idea. Therefore, you can use an on premise SQL Server, an Azure data warehouse or another data warehouse, which is managed by Xtract Universal. If you are interested in an integration of your SAP ERP or SAP BW system and Power Pivot you can find more information here.

  • Integration of Power BI and SAP via Xtract Universal
  • Interim data warehouse as a staging area
  • Resource-efficient and central administration of SAP data
  • Different data warehouses as an interim data warehouse
Data extraction

Generally speaking, data extraction from SAP to Power BI can be modeled in different ways depending on the desired architecture and how it will fit into an existing customer landscape:

  1. The first option is to fill a database or data warehouse (e.g. SQL Server, Azure Datawarehouse, etc.) using the concept of Instant Data Warehousing, and subsequently accessing the data with Power BI.
  2. The second and latest approach offers a direct integration of a Xtract Universal Custom Connector into the list of data sources of Power BI. This enables seamless SAP integration for Power BI Desktop, Power BI service (via Microsoft’s On-premises data gateway) and Power BI Report server. For those cases which can´t be covered by the Custom Connector, Xtract Universal provides a dedicated M-script.
