Qlik™ Data Integration

New SAP ODP Connector

Qlik™ is continuing to expand their connectivity to the SAP Operational Data Provisioning (ODP) framework. Last November, it released an SAP ODP Connector for Qlik™ Data Integration Client-Managed product, last month it added an SAP ODP Connector for Qlik™ Cloud Analytics, and this month, it was introduced an SAP ODP Connector for Qlik™ Cloud Data Integration.

All of these connectors provide many benefits to SAP users vs. previous, existing SAP connectors including:

  • Simplified access to CDS Views and HANA Views
  • Access to Extractors, without the use of standalone network service
  • Usable with an SAP Runtime license
  • Does not require any separate Qlik™ SAP Connector license
  • No need for an SAP transport installation, particularly useful with an SAP managed cloud system
  • Up to 25% faster performance vs. Qlik™’s existing SAP connectors

Additional SAP HANA Support

In addition to the SAP HANA connector, Qlik™ Cloud Data Integration now includes support for SAP HANA as the backend database for the SAP Application connector.  This release also provides Add Business Group Management capabilities. Business groups allow SAP users to create groups of tables that are recognized by the Data Movement gateway, providing additional context when selecting data artifacts to be replicated.

Qlik™ Data Analytics

Access SAP ODP source via Direct Access gateway

The Qlik™ Data Gateway – Direct Access eliminates the need to open inbound firewall ports by operating behind your organization’s firewall. It allows Qlik Sense™ SaaS applications to securely access behind-the-firewall data, over a strictly outbound, encrypted, and mutually authenticated connection.

This month Qlik™ released a new version of the gateway that includes the SAP ODP connector as an additional option to access an on-premises SAP system.
