This blog describes how to configure Informatica’s SAP NetWeaver R/3 to connect with SAP BW, extracting data directly from SAP transparent tables. It details setup steps on Informatica and BW servers, as well as what’s required from a developer’s perspective.
It’s also important to note that there are two ways to connect SAP BW from Informatica, i.e.
- Using Informatica’s SAP BW Connector – this extraction is driven by an Infospoke and extracts data via the Open Hub Services (OHS)
- Using Informatica’s SAP NetWeaver R/3 Connector – this allows data extraction directly from a SAP transparent table
This blog details the second method i.e. using Informatica's SAP NetWeaver R/3 Connector.
