Optimized Business Tool for Hi gher Performance and Productiv ity THERE IS ONE COMMON FACTOR RULING BUSINESSES AND ENTERPRISES ACROSS THE WORLD REGARDLESS OF THE SCALE, SIZE, OR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN. IT IS THE WILL TO INCREASE BUSINESS EFFICIENCIES, PRODUCTIVITY, AND PERFORMANCE AND GET AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION.


ď‚— Various strategies and tools are

formulated and used, depending on the issues at hand. One of the tools that have created a massive positive impact is the SAP data integration tool. To get a clear picture of how this tool is helping companies become more efficient, it is necessary to understand the prevailing scenario before it was introduced.


ď‚— In the past, an ETL tool to transform and replicate

data had to be installed for loading a flat-file into HANA from the source to the target system. Then, another SLT/SRS was required for real-time functionalities. Hence, several tools and connectors were needed to complete one task, thereby increasing the processing time.


ď‚— This rather cumbersome process has now been

sharpened with the SAP data integration tool. The tool acts as a link between source and HANA, reading source type data and transforming it into HANA type data value. Therefore, the requirement of several tools has now been replaced by one. Further, SAP data integration (SDI) replicates and/or batch loads data changes from the source to the SAP HANA tables in real-time. It helps to offer an instant real-time view of the changed and modified conditions both at source or target SAP HANA.


ď‚— Here are some features of SDI that have made it the

preferred tool of modern businesses. # Change Data Capture – In a setting where the entire source data has to be replicated to the target every day, a lot of time is devoted to this task, taking the focus away from other core activities. On the other hand, Change Data Capture (CDC) continually tracks modified data and transfers them across the source and target. This ensures that the updated data is available at all times facilitating quick and considered decision-making.


# Setup and configuration – Setting up and configuring SAP data integration tool is a very simple process. The primary SAP SDI Agent has to be installed first and the SFDC Adapter deployed over it. The Adapter is the bridge between HANA and the source, is hosted on the S/HANA data provisioning agent and helps to read source data and change the values into HANA data type.


# Dynamically adjusted communication method - The “Maximum Expected Number of Record� parameter is automatically switched between source APIs by the adapter. In the event of the volume of records in source data being equal to or less than the value of the maximum expected records parameter, SOAP API is generally used. If not BULK API is triggered and applied.


ď‚— These cutting edge features make SAP data

integration a very powerful tool and businesses can increase performance and productivity through optimized data management.
