Connecting to SAP BW servers

Before creating any reports using the SAP BW data, you need to establish a connection between MicroStrategy and the SAP BW system. MicroStrategy certifies connecting to SAP BW 3.1, 3.5, 7.0, 7.3, and 7.4.

With the SAP BW Certification on MicroStrategy, MicroStrategy Intelligence Server is certified to connect to and execute reports against SAP BW cubes. As SAP’s proprietary API for accessing SAP BW data and functionality, the OLAP BAPI provides an open interface through which Intelligence Server can access the SAP BW data.

MicroStrategy Web is certified to run on SAP Web Application Server, and MicroStrategy Web and SDK are certified to run with SAP Enterprise Portal through iView Packages.
