SAC Connectivity – APOS Live Data Gateway
The SAP BTP group recently invited APOS to deliver a presentation on APOS Live Data Gateway’s connectivity capabilities with SAP Analytics Cloud. The session included live Q & A and a panel discussion.
Topics covered included:
- SAC Connectivity Options
- Live Data Connectivity for SAC
- Data Preparation
- Advanced Features
- Expanded Connection Support
Here are some highlights from the Leverage Live Data Analytics: Unlock Value with APOS Live Data Gateway presentation.
Not surprisingly, SAC connectivity options are focused on SAP data assets. SAC users can establish live connectivity to these assets, but more and more organizations are expressing a need for live connectivity to non-SAP data assets. For the majority of these data assets, SAC currently provides only import connectivity.
Import connectivity works well for some functions, but organizations connecting to a variety of non-SAP data assets to create a more comprehensive, real-time analytics environment really need live data connectivity. That’s where APOS Live Data Gateway makes its impact.
APOS Live Data Gateway provides live data connectivity for a wide variety of non-SAP data sources, including all of those shown in the slide above, and as illustrated by the following slide:
On our website, we list over 100 potential data assets, and the the “JDBC connectivity” bullet In the bottom right corner of the image above means that APOS Live Data Gateway can connect to most any data asset for which a JDBC driver exists, which greatly expands your Analytics capabilities.
Please note that APOS Live Data Gateway also has editions for:
- SAP Ariba
- Premium Data Sources (SAP Ariba, Concur, Fieldglass, SuccessFactors, and other Cloud applications or niche data sources)
- Power BI + SAP Data Warehouse Cloud (DirectQuery)
