Enhance the value of your SAP Data

SAP is a fantastic system. You wouldn’t have invested in it otherwise. But what if you could gain better, whole of company business insights by merging SAP data with other external data sets into a separate analysis tool?

What if it helped lower IT costs by reducing dependency on IT? And what if you needed real-time data warehousing in the cloud without the expense of HANA?

Attunity Replicate for SAP is a high-performance, automated and easy to use data replication solution that is optimized to deliver SAP application data in real-time for Big Data analytics. It moves the right SAP application data easily, securely and at scale to any major database, data warehouse or Hadoop, on premises or in the cloud. This solution builds on decades of leadership in enterprise data replication and SAP integration.

Attunity Replicate for SAP is unique in that its innovative technology, an SAP certified agent, converts the complex data structure into an easily accessible data model. This empowers customers to turn a typical complex data model of thousands of tables into a data replication task at the business or transaction level, quickly and easily. In other words, it offers a unified means for replicating SAP documents, transactions and business data to a diverse ecosystem of analytics environments. By analyzing this data, enterprises can improve operations, capitalize on customer opportunities and compete more effectively. 

And you don’t even need to know SAP to use it.

So what are the benefits?

  • Leverage the industry’s broadest support of targets. Easily integrate structured SAP data with unstructured data (from IoT, social media or other sources) in Hadoop for new insights, as well as message brokers such as Kafka. In addition, Attunity Replicate for SAP transfers external data from any major non-SAP source into SAP HANA.
  • Real-time Integration with CDC. Attunity Replicate for SAP change data capture (CDC) technology continuously updates targets to enable real-time insights. Data transfers are intentionally designed to maximize throughput and minimize latency. Attunity Replicate for SAP can apply transactions or changes in order and in real time.
  • Ease of Use and Automation. Attunity’s intuitive web-based console makes it simple to configure, control and monitor replication tasks across all sources and targets. Execute bulk data loads, then transition automatically to continuous CDC for consistent updates. Attunity Replicate for SAP can also automatically generate target databases or tables based on metadata definitions in the source schema. Any DDL changes made to that schema, such as table/column additions or changes to data types, will be replicated dynamically to the target.
  • Secure and High Speed cloud Data Transfer. Attunity Replicate for SAP compresses, encrypts and transfers data in parallel streams into, across and out of cloud architectures, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.
  • Low Impact. Replicate data from SAP production with zero downtime, with no additional hardware required on the SAP source. In addition, by identifying changes within source logs, Attunity Replicate CDC protects the performance and integrity of production transactions.
