Unleash the power of your SAP data

How it works

Xtract for Alteryx is our tool for the business analyst working with Alteryx Designer. Whether you are looking to integrate SAP sales, finance, procurement, material or employee data into your analytics solution, with Xtract for Alteryx you will have SAP data at your fingertips.

As part of our Xtract family, the product comes with the same, proven SAP data extraction capabilities as our other Xtract products. Xtract for Alteryx will show up in the Designer as a separate Tools group, where you can access different SAP data source components. Simply drag and drop any of the tools to your workflow design area and start working with it. Everything you need to tap into your SAP data sources is right where you need it – no need for another tool or cumbersome data transfer procedures. With a few clicks, you can connect to one or more SAP systems and configure your SAP data feeds - no coding or scripting required. Xtract for Alteryx supports both large volume SAP data ingestion as well as repeated, incremental SAP data feeds. Multiple SAP data extracts can run concurrently.

Your SAP data feeds can be easily modified in Alteryx Designer to include new data elements or data from different SAP modules to accommodate your changing business requirements. No need for expensive and time-consuming ABAP coding cycles.

These components will help you to achieve your goals!

Reliable, high-performance extraction of SAP tables (transparent tables, cluster tables, and views) is easier than ever before thanks to the Table component.

This component comes with our custom ABAP package for table extraction but also supports standard SAP function modules. What´s more, joining SAP tables prior to extraction via Open SQL statement is also possible. This replaces the need for manually creating views or SAP queries on the SAP side.

These components are the crème de la crème when it comes to extracting data from SAP. With the help of the DeltaQ component, users can extract what are known as SAP DataSources. The main benefit of DataSources is the integrated mechanism for incremental data extraction — a function also employed by SAP BW.

DeltaQ and ODP enable the use of DataSources and thus eliminate the need for an SAP BW. The ODP component is Theobald Software’s response to the new SAP ODP extraction types. This component can also be used to extract SAP DataSources, as well as CDS views, BW/4HANA objects, and other data sources.

With the BAPI component, it is possible to call BAPIs and RFC function modules. At the same time, the component can be used as both the data source and—depending on the Xtract product—the target (data write-back). Users can extract or populate the BAPI’s import/export and table parameters.

This component makes it possible to use ABAP reports as a data source. This guarantees the extraction and thus continued use of existing, customer-specific ABAP reports or of standard reports provided by SAP. Users can simply adopt existing reports and their respective business logic instead of wasting time to recreate them outside of SAP.

The Query component lets users extract SAP ERP queries right from the SAP system. There is no need to tediously recreate existing queries and their respective business logic outside of SAP, because you can simply continue using them instead.

The Hierarchy component makes it possible to extract hierarchies from an SAP BW system. At the same time, this component gives users the option to extract the data in its original parent/child format. The hierarchies can also be broken up, however, and the individual hierarchy levels extracted as column headers in a flat table.

Through Open Hub Services (OHS), SAP provides an extraction method for a range of BW source objects. OHS is a particularly interesting choice when it comes to exporting mass data from SAP BW and provides an integrated delta mechanism when using SAP DTPs. Theobald Software supports the OHS component for BW/4 HANA as well.

The BW Cube component implements SAP’s OLAP BAPI interface (MDX) as well as the native BICS interface. It is therefore possible to extract traditional BW objects, such as BW or BEx queries, cubes, and MultiProvider. At the same time, the component supports both the new HANA-based BW objects and the objects of an S/4HANA embedded BW. The BW Cube component supports BEx variables and dimension filtering, thus enabling the extraction of large amounts of data with a packetizing and slicing function.
