Introduction to SAP ETL Tool

SAP applications and databases like Sybase are essential to business operations for many of the world’s largest companies, and the right SAP ETL tool can help to make valuable SAP data available for analytics and business insight. Applications like CRM, ECC, HR and Finance capture large amounts of critical data and objects within SAP systems. But moving that data into analytics platforms can be time-consuming, cumbersome and costly, due to the underlying data model and complex data structures.

Traditional extract, transform and load (ETL) solutions rarely work well in an SAP environment. To move data from SAP applications and implementations, most ETL solutions require complex manual coding and procedures that disrupt production sources, tie up development resources and hinder the productivity of users throughout the organization.
