  • BW Hierarchy extracts Hierarchies from an SAP BW / BI system.
  • DeltaQ extracts DataSources (OLTP) and extractors from ERP and ECC systems.
  • ODP extracts data via the SAP Operational Data Provisioning (ODP) framework.
  • Open Hub Services (OHS) extracts InfoSpokes and OHS destinations.
  • Query extracts ERP queries. Note: not BEx queries supplied by BW Cube.
  • Report extracts ABAP Reports.
  • Table extracts data from SAP tables and views; allows joining several tables on the SAP side.
  • Table Join - allows to join several SAP tables. The Join-process takes place entirely within the SAP system without downloading single tables.
