SAP E-Sourcing to BI
We are about to implement E-Sourcing 5.1+CLM2.0, SRM 5.5 and BI 7.0.
SRM has a standard integration to BI and hence data extraction won't be a problem.How to integrate E-Sourcing to BI 7.0 , to get the spend analytics reports. Has any one done this already?.
Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

There are no standard adaptors to BI integration woth SAP E-Sourcing
However, SAP xSA (Spend Analytics) have been built on the BI 7.0 platform itself. That integrates with SAP E-Sourcing 5.1
So if you have a good BI team, they can build the interfaces for you. you can check the interfaces b/w SAP E-Sourcing and SAP xSA and then compare them with the SAP BI solution and either develop them or re-use them
Currently for xSA there are pre-built extractors in the marketplace, in which data is extracted and sent to SAP for the analysis in the hosted model
you can have a look at those extractors as well
You can contact Padmini ranganatham at SAP to get more details
