Qlik for SAP®

Fully leverage your wealth
of data contained in SAP

Access to information is key

In order to fully understand their business and make the right decisions, modern organizations need solutions that are not only easy to use, but also quick to develop and deploy, even for complex scenarios. Qlik applications enable SAP-based decision making at the speed of business and let users rapidly access and combine data from any source to visualize and interact with it in the right context. This allows users the freedom to analyze information any way they want.

Qlik for SAP ERP & BW

The Qlik SAP Connector connects to different data sources in an SAP environment including DSO, InfoCube, Open SQL, BEx Query or table. For example, it can connect to a BEx Query to reuse existing logic or connect through SAP Extractor to reuse pre-defined extraction logic and delta loads. Regardless of the path, the SAP connector provides the power and flexibility to quickly access data stored in SAP and put it in the right context.

Qlik for SAP HANA

Regardless if you run native SAP HANA applications or if you have a scenario with SAP ERP or SAP BW on HANA, Qlik smoothly connects and extracts data for use in QlikView® or Qlik® Sense.

For SAP HANA, connectivity is established by using Qlik native db-connector, e.g. ODBC, to extract data for use in QlikView or Qlik Sense.

Where SAP ERP or SAP BW is running on the SAP HANA platform, our existing Qlik SAP Connector is supported and can connect to many different objects in your SAP BW / ERP environment, e.g. DSO, InfoCube, BEx Query or SAP table.
