APOS Live Data Gateway

Extended Data Connectivity for SAP BI

The APOS Live Data Gateway simplifies and extends data access for:

  • SAP Lumira
  • SAP Analytics Cloud

The Data Gateway is a data connection and data transformation solution that enables live data connectivity and expanded data source options for SAP BI solutions.

SAP Lumira - Live Data Connectivity

The convergence of SAP Design Studio and SAP Lumira is big news for SAP BusinessObjects users needing to create and use visualizations to communicate BI's single version of the truth. To achieve this single version, BI practitioners -- from business users to designers -- need to establish the best and most diverse data connectivity possible.

Live data connectivity is preferable for many reasons, but is only possible natively for SAP HANA data sources. For relational and OLAP data sources, Lumira users not working outside of the box must make do with Acquire mode, which means they must import data for their projects. That imported data is out of date as soon as it is imported.

The APOS Live Data Gateway simplifies and extends the data connectivity for SAP Lumira. The Live mode of data connectivity provides:

  • Connection to trusted and governed data sources
  • A simplified discovery experience, with no need to write SQL
  • Flexible data selection
  • Data that is always current
  • Stronger security -- no data stored on the user's computer
  • The ability to use the Lumira Discovery web client -- no install on the client machine
