If you are a Tableau user who also uses SAP, getting access to your SAP data within Tableau can be a real headache. In this blog, we will introduce you to two approaches that will allow you to quickly and easily connect to your SAP BW, SAP Business Suite and SAP BusinessObjects data without having to install any additional software within your SAP landscape.
If you want to extract data from SAP BW, SAP Business Suite applications (including SAP ECC, SAP CRM, SAP SCM etc.) or SAP BusinessObjects directly into Tableau, you should take a look at the DVW Tableau Connector for SAP.
Check out this video in which, Daneel De Villiers of DVW, shows you how easy it is for Alteryx and Tableau users to utilize SAP data with the Alteryx Connector for SAP.
