SAP Business Warehouse Open Hub Service (BW-OHS)

SAP Business Warehouse (SAP BW) Open Hub Service allows controlled and secure provision of high quality SAP BW data to downstream systems and applications. In addition to provision SAP BW data via flat files, database tables or SAP PI (formerly known as SAP XI, a component of the SAP NetWeaver platform), customers may choose to integrate 3rd party tools (such as ETL tools) with the Open Hub Service for data distribution. For this purpose, various APIs are available to assure full integration via the BW-OHS integration scenario.

Note: For a list of already certified integrations for this integration scenario please visit the SAP Application Development partner directory and use the search functions in the tab "solution".
