Data Connection & Data Transformation

Use the APOS Live Data Gateway's connectors to make your enterprise data sources available for your SAP Analytics Cloud stories.

Direct Data Connector

The APOS Live Data Gateway's Direct Data Connector simplifies the process of building stories and populating dashboards and reports. There is no data modeling required before you construct your stories, because the APOS Data Gateway uses the data model and security model that are deployed in the source database, significantly reducing the time it takes to achieve story objectives, and dramatically improving end user adoption.

SAP BW Connector

The APOS Live Data Gateway connects quickly and easily to BW, with no changes required to the BW environment. Just connect and start building your stories.

JDBC Connectivity

The APOS Live Data Gateway supports generic JDBC connectivity, so it is well positioned to connect to a vast range of additional data sources and applications.  Any source that has a JDBC connection point is a candidate source, meaning there are countless potential sources that the APOS Live Data Gateway can access and serve data from.

Please inquire with APOS if you have questions concerning the use of the APOS Live Data Gateway with a particular application or data source.
