The Alteryx Connector for SAP, works with SAP S/4HANA (AKA SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA) on-premise edition in the same way as it does for SAP’s Business Suite solutions (ECC, CRM etc.).
Take a look at this short demo of the Alteryx Connector for SAP (ACS) being used with an SAP S/4HANA system.
If you are interest in a detailed walkthrough of the ACS please go to our demo page.
Apart from the use of the in-memory SAP HANA database a key feature of S/4HANA is the simplified data model that has been implemented by SAP. This new data model makes it even easier for users with limited knowledge of SAP to access the data they need.
Let’s consider the Sales and Distribution area of SAP.
In SAP ECC we have the following tables (NOTE: This is not an exhaustive list):
Foreign Trade (Export / Import) Tables
With SAP S/4HANA this has been simplified to:
In ECC, if I want to understand Sales Order status, I need to consider at least VBAK and VBUK. With S/4HANA, sales document status has been moved out of VBUK and into VBAK so I only need to consider the VBAK table. A simple example but when you consider the type of simplification across the system a significant one.
