Few months ago, we announced the 1st prototype version of the Data Federator Web Intelligence Reporting for SAP ERP based on ABAP functions.
Based on your feedbacks, we updated the connector to support the latest version of Data Federator (XI 3.0 SP2) and to add ERP Infosets support.
This new prototype lets you leverage your BI platform to connect to SAP ERP operational data. This is an opportunity for your business users to create their own ad-hoc queries and reports.
For instance, they can combine historic data coming from BW or a warehouse with SAP ERP real time data in the same Universe.
Business users can also create ad-hoc queries on operational data to get real-time insights (no need for a warehouse in this case).
In addition, the multisource nature of Data Federator lets you combine different ABAP functions and Infosets with other sources in the same Universe to provide new cross functional insights.
