with this Blog I want to give you an update o the SLT scenario for Operational Data Provisioning.
With the new SP7, the SLT scenario for ODP is no longer limited in terms of parallel initial load! That is, now every subscriber (up to 4) gets the initial load of requested tables, no matter if it is the first or fourth subscription on the Delta Queue.
Since SP6 already, SLT supports in this scenario also non-ABAP systems and pool- and cluster tables.
The most important benefits for Data Replication with SLT into SAP BW are:
– Replacing nightly batch loads with (near) real-time data transfer
– Reducing the amount of transferred data from full loads to delta-only
Can also be used to replace generic BW extractors:
combine the tables/fields of the extractor in a view and replicate only deltas with help of SLT. Make use of Advanced Replication Settings/ Transformation Rules.
– Management of multi client data extraction with SLT reduces management effort drastically
Customer could reduce the running data transfer processes and the number of DataSources to one, and the implementation of a new client means no effort for data replication.
