How to integrate SAP with ARIS MashZone 9.7?

Hi all,

I'm trying to understand the best way to integrate our SAP Solution Manager system as a data feed to MashZone 9.7 but until now I didn't understand the correct way to do that.

Can I create a database connection in the MashZone Administration page to do that? Or should I use PPM or Webmethods to do that integration?

Any suggestions are welcome!

 

Best Regards,

Hi, from what I´ve learnt so far if you want to be safe on legal restriction you can get the SAP data to AMZ only with ARIS PPM, as the PPM has a "SAP-2-PPM" connector , which is shipped as licensed and optional part of ARIS PPM. With the SAP-2-PPM connector you will not brake any legal rule. Unfortunately any direct and periodical ETL process over SAP without licensed SAP connector is considered as breaking SAP legal rules and you can run easily into troubles.

On the other hand side, there are some other ways to get the SAP data to AMZ, but I´d not rather discuss them here in public. If anything find my email address in user´s details and drop me an email.

Hi Jiri,

Thanks for your reply!

Could you explain me a little bit more about this PPM approach? Do you know if with SAP-2-PPM connector is possible to extract data from any SAP environment (not only ECC but also Solution Manager)?

Hi Vitor, to be honest I´ve not been faced  with a need to get data from Sol man to AMZ so far, thus it would be helpful if you could share with us some more details to understand what is the purpose to do so. As I wrote before, there should be few other ways to get the desired data, even without PPM. I´m very curious what is the purpose because I condsider the Solution Manager more less as only a managing tool...

The SAP-2-PPM connector utilizes SAP JCo and provides you a possibility to connect and see the SAP data (ECC) directly from PPM - and extract them to PPM later. But basically you can configure PPM to utilize any other driver together with e.g. JDBC-2-PPM and connect directly to data layer of any other systems. Obviously there are some boundaries, but if we don´t depict any particular purpose then is quite hard to say more :)  

If you don´t want to discuss it in here, find my email in user details.

BR,

Jiri
