The Open Hub service enables you to distribute data from an SAP BW system into external data marts, analytical applications, and other applications. With this, you can ensure controlled distribution using several systems. The central object for the export of data is the InfoSpoke. Using this, you can define the object from which the data comes and into which target it is transferred.
- Openness to extract data from BW
- All BW data objects are supported for extraction
- Delta tracking for each target system
- Scheduling and central monitoring
- SAP BW can serve as an enterprise information hub (EDW) and feed data to any downstream system.
This crash course will introduce you to the SAP BW Open Hub Service and guide you through creating, activating and executing an InfoSpoke.
