I have a project with SAP, the customer has deployed SAP Modules as mentioned below:
The back-end of SAP is DB2.
My question here, which SAP connector will be suitable for these inputs above? Additionally, what is the normal expected days to implement QlikView with these Modules above.
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The best SAP Connector doesn't really depend on the SAP module you want to develop documents for. It depends on the data/reporting layer you want to access and - more importantly - how you want the meta data to be handled.
For example, SAP SQL Connector allows you to access almost every one of the 80000+ tables in your SAP environment, but - as the name says it - in a query-based unprocessed way ("raw data" if you like). While the SAP OLAP Connector lets you query the SAP B/W Cubes in that same SAP system.
Read the first few pages of the SAP Connector help, which is now published on-line and available here: SAP
And for your second question: it depends on whether you want tailored documents or you want to get started as quickly as possible. The first can take you months to years (you did include everything in your module list), the second one can be done rather quickly by using the standard QlikStart templates for SAP. See here: A Collection of QlikView SAP Template. They may be a bit outdated though.
Thanks for your reply.
Another question,is there a way to integrate QlikView with SAP or it is mandatory to position SAP Connector in that case.
Additionally, what about QlikSense, can i use it with SAP Sys
I don't know. I guess I can make them work more-or-less (some are a bit outdated) in a couple of days. But I have no idea about the resources and expertise you have at your disposal.
Thanks for your info above,
I have last question in that case, can I use SAP SQL Connector as the SAP SQL Connector only applicable with QlikSense.
as I know not all components of the Qlik Connector works with Qlik Sense at the moment, check the documentation for that.
As Peter said, there is another SAP Connector for QlikView (from a third party) and my company is used that.
I would recommend that you evaluate both connectors and check which one is the best for you.
Will u suggest me how to get connect to SAP SRM server from qlikview.Is there any third party connectors ?
my requirement is to connect and extract data from SAP SRM server
