There are numerous things which need to be considered when determining the best option for extracting data out of the SAP Business Suite of applications to load into HANA. For instance, are the tables “insert only” or do they also allow updates? Is it possible to use existing SAP Business Suite Extractors just like an SAP Business Warehouse implementation? Does your RDBMS have Change Data Capture (CDC) capabilities? If not, do the tables you’re interested in have create and change timestamps for you to implement your own delta extraction mechanism? Depending on the option chosen, the complexity, supportability and maintenance cost of the implementation can vary significantly. This section will detail all the options worth considering and provide step by step instructions on how to implement them.
