Actuate and YASH Technologies introduce SAP BW Connector for BIRT
Mar 01, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Actuate Corporation, a provider of software and services to develop and deploy custom business intelligence and information applications, and YASH Technologies, a provider of IT services, have announced the availability of the SAP BW Connector for BIRT.
The native plug-in was built using the Eclipse-based ODA framework. The SAP BW Connector for BIRT features an intuitive GUI similar to the BIRT and ActuateOne interfaces, and enables users to easily configure queries to SAP Business Warehouse (BW). The data retrieved can then be combined inside ActuateOne products with data of any magnitude or complexity, including Big Data from sources such as machine logs and social media, Yash said.
Additional features of the connector include platform independence; OLAP access to SAP data via web services; ability to create, access and customize MultiDimensional eXpression (MDX) queries; ability to slice, filter and sort MDX cross-joins; BEx Query Designer parameter handling; and localization support.
"As a premier partner of Actuate and multi-level partner of SAP, YASH is well poised to take advantage of technologies from the two companies to create this connector. With years of experience in developing products and supporting large enterprises worldwide, we felt there was a strong need for a connector which would enable access to SAP BW data using the Eclipse-based ODA," said Gautam Gupta, BI Practice Director for YASH. "This connector enables SAP BW customers to extend their data outside of the SAP environment to use BIRT and ActuateOne for analytical and reporting purposes, thus significantly increasing their return on investment."
