Data Replication Service available

A start-up company in Heidelberg approached PBS Software GmbH with the wish to also replicate archived business data from operational SAP systems in order to analyze it on SAP HANA. PBS, as an expert in integrated access also to archived data, quickly found a suitable solution with the Data Replication Service (DRS), a feature of the Nearline Analytic Infrastructure (NAI) for the managed replication of any SAP data. In future, the start-up can also analyze archived data or incorporate this data in analyses. For this it uses separate tablet-based graphical interfaces.

PBS Application Scenarios

The new Data Replication Service replicates business data from ERP database or ERP archive in column-oriented, analytical databases, either in DB2 with BLU Acceleration, SAP IQ, Actian’s Vector or also SAP HANA. The NAI Query Tool is available there for easily performing analyses. It can evaluate data in summarized form and then display it in a drill-down view. It provides numerous filter options and aggregation types such as the calculation of the sum, average, minimum, or maximum. All analyses are performed in ERP, without putting any load on the ERP database.

We will gladly send you more detailed information on request. Functionality, advantages, and implementation possibilities of the Data Replication Service will also be presented at our Information Day on June 17.
