The DVW Tableau Connector for SAP ("TCS") is a flexible, fast and easy to use Desktop tool that can be used with Tableau and Tableau Prep.
In this blog we will use the TCS to extract data from two commonly used SAP finance tables, import the data into Tableau Prep, create a Join between the table data in Tableau Prep and generate an output file ready for consumption in Tableau.
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.
