SAP Business objects Data Services (BODS) ToolsCategory: General Posted:Nov 06,2014 By: admin
Business objects Data Services (SAP BODS) is a complex platform for the data integration process and constitutes the latest version of Business objects (SAP BO) application. In comparison with previous versions of Business objects (SAP BO) ETL (Business objects Data Integrator – SAP BODI), a Data Quality module is the integral part of Data Services.
The SAP Business objects Data Services (SAP BODS) platform has a modular structure and consists of the following tools: Data Services Designer is a fat-client application that enables the data workflows which are classified in tasks to be monitored. Business objects Data Services (SAP BODS) application offers a number of predefined transformations and functional objects that allow modelling of the ETL flows. Data Validation allows previewing data validation on the basis of the defined rules and estimation and identification the potential errors or inconsistencies of the data source
There is also a possibility to programme specialized functions with the use of the particular script language. Administrator is designed for the ETL platform and the application repository management and for scheduling ETL jobs. Each of the tasks processed by the ETL server generates log file that is available for a given period of time. The administrator can access the transformed tasks. Business objects Data Services (SAP BODS) solutions are built based on a central repository which is independent from the local repositories of the ETL developers.
The monitoring process can show incorrectness of some tasks (on a log-level) which delivers specific reports of these errors (from the ETL server or database). Schedules can vary from simple to advance with the use of Data Services scheduler or Business objects (SAP BO) Enterprise platform scheduler (available in the BOE BI portal).
