This section explains how Data Services can be used to extract data from an SAP Business Suite system or directly from its underlying database and load it into HANA. While Data Services has some limited support for the real-time movement of data, the examples in this guide highlight its batch processing capabilities.
Data Services is a comprehensive Extract Transform Load (ETL) solution. As such, it allows extracted data to be cleansed/transformed/enhanced extensively before loading it to the intended target. These cleansing/transforming/enhancing capabilities will not be discussed. If you want more information on this topic, please have a look at the Data Services Designer Guide and Reference Guide for more details.
