Hi Manian,

Please go through this link...

A small but quite interesting and useful presentation on SAP MDM 7.1 PI Adapter.

https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/nw-mdm71?rid=/library/uuid/604b3c0c-5b6c-2b10-cc83-a7af75c70eaf

1.Will MDM adapter accesses directly the repository (in console or data manager or syndicator)?

Ans: MDM Adapter doesn't access the MDM repository; it access the port on which you want to drop the file or from which you want to pick the file. Now using MDM PI adapter you don't need to configure FTP for interacting with MDM repository's ready folder.

2.How MDM adapter can be compared with import manager or syndicator .

Ans: We can't compare MDM PI adapter with Import manager or syndicator. It is an adapter used to send/recieve data to/from MDM. After sending data to the inbound port ready folder; MDIS will import it to the repository. Similarly MDSS will syndicate the data and drop a file on outbound port ready folder and then MDM PI Adapter will pick the file.

3. MDM adpater enables to load the data directly to any repository ?

Ans: MDM Adapter doesn't loads the data into repository; however it just places the file in inbound port ready folder and then it is the job of MDIS to pick the file from there and import it into the repository. Using MDM adapter we can monitor complete end-to end process and we can also check that whether data has been successfully imported into repository or not.

4. how the integration of PI7.1 with MDM 7.1 takes place?

Ans: For this you will have to go through the link which I have provided in the beginning. It will give you some idea about it.

Regards,

Varun
