SAP Marketing Cloud Marketing uses real-time access through Core Data Service (CDS) Views to expose Marketing Analytics in SAP Analytics Cloud via Analytics Stories and Dashboards.
However, there are business scenarios, where customer need a different solution for Analytics: For example, if customer run a centralized Analytics, they need to extract data from SAP Marketing Cloud into other systems, for example into a central global Business Information Warehouse. Other example are scenarios, where marketing effectiveness shall be visualized in a dashboard, which exposes performance results of digital marketing together with success data of email campaigns from SAP Marketing Cloud.
Such scenarios can be supported, if mass data are extracted from Marketing Cloud into a corresponding external system being used for the required Analytics. This can be achieved by means of CDS based data extraction, which uses a mechanism named CDC (Change Data Capture).
