SAP BI & Analytics – Data Connectivity Challenges

Many of our customers are using both SAP BusinessObjects and SAP Analytics Cloud or SAP S/4HANA with varying degrees of integration and interoperability. There is no single definition of Hybrid BI & Analytics, which means that the possibilities are endless, but also that the challenges ahead in your quest for value across your BI & Analytics platforms are equally great.

Some of the greatest challenges you may face include data connectivity, data modelling, and publishing. Today, I will focus on data connectivity.

You may find that you are using the same data sources for both your SAP BusinessObjects and SAP Analytics Cloud deployment, but you might also find that the drive toward better Analytics is opening up a variety of other data sources.

Time to value is a major consideration, so here’s a way to implement and manage effective, efficient connectivity. The APOS Live Data Gateway solution can connect to most relational, OLAP, Hadoop, Big Data, and Cloud-based data sources for consumption by a wide variety of applications (such as SAP Analytics Cloud and SAP Data Warehouse Cloud) using OData, JDBC and ODBC protocols.

APOS Live Data Gateway works well with large data sets – millions to billions of rows – and returns queries from these data sources quickly and efficiently to your reports.
