How do I migrate the data from SAP to SQL on a daily schedule?

A global company running their HR on SAP needs to update an SQL backend (a simple staff table) consisting of only title, name, surname, department, telephone and extension numbers. Now my question is how do I migrate the data from SAP to SQL on a daily schedule using an ODBC connection as well as ensure that the process remains a non-intrusive exercise on their systems. In other words, read only but do not modify. Is there some sort of "poller" available and is DTS the only answer?

I am presented with the following situation: A global company running their HR on SAP needs to update an SQL backend (a simple staff table) consisting of only title, name, surname, department, telephone and extension numbers. Now my question is how do I migrate the data from SAP to SQL on a daily schedule using an ODBC connection as well as ensure that the process remains a non-intrusive exercise on their systems. In other words, read only but do not modify. Is there some sort of "poller" available and is DTS the only answer?
I've seen something like this done by using a custom ALE process to deliver changes but that was only to get it out to the application server. I think it is a reasonable approach though and I would recommend looking into ALE for getting the data out of SAP. As far as the ODBC connection though, my knowledge is far too limited to give even a reasonable recommendation.
