Bryte has been our ETL ‘partner’ in the full sense of the term.
“Origin embarked on a journey to create a cloudbased Data and Analytics environment. Bryte has been with us from the beginning as we turn this vision into a reality. There have been some unique challenges in our environment, such as the nature of our SAP deployment, the volumes of data involved, and the exact manner in which we wanted our data handled.
Throughout, Bryte has been more than a software vendor – it has been our ETL ‘partner’ in the full sense of the term. They have been part of the strategic road map conversation, provided advice on our Amazon S3/Redshift Data lake architecture, have made material contributions to our knowledge of AWS products and have generally been a valued advisor on our journey.
Their software and business model appear to have significant flexibility, and as new requirements become apparent they are quick to evolve and incorporate new features into their core platform. In short, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone embarking on a journey similar to ours.”
BryteFlow for SAP FAQs
Why is replicating data from a SAP database so difficult?
SAP intrinsically is very complex ERP software. The process of SAP data replication can prove difficult as SAP systems are made up of a staggering amount of tables in proprietary data formats that make accessing data outside of SAP very challenging. That’s why you need an efficient SAP data replication tool to successfully extract and prepare your SAP data for analytics, and future proof your data for Machine Learning.
What is SAP CDC?
When data within the SAP source changes, the same changes need to get reflected onto the replicated data on the destination (in this case your Amazon S3 data lake). BryteFlow Ingest our data replication tool uses log-based Change Data Capture, a technology that updates the data continually with ONLY the files that have changed. The other files are undisturbed so data updates never impact or slow down the source system.
Why use CDC technology rather than ELT or ETL to replicate SAP data?
ETL stands for Extract Transform Load where data is pulled out and transformed into defined formats on the source and then loaded into the data warehouse while ELT stands for Extract Load Transform where the data is pulled out and transformed into the required format in the data warehouse like Amazon Redshift. ETL can impose considerable load on the source, slowing down operations while ELT uses the compute power of the data warehouse which is expensive. Most importantly both approaches can miss deletes and lead to inconsistent, unreliable data. With BryteFlow’s Change Data Capture or CDC technology, only changes in data are updated on the destination. BryteFlow Ingest is a data replication tool that uses log-based CDC to Amazon S3, Redshift and Snowflake that captures only the deltas. The CDC is a continual process and can happen in real-time or at the frequency specified by you. Further with BryteFlow Blend, the SAP data is prepared real-time as it is replicated, leading to efficient SAP Data Integration
My SAP data has proved notoriously hard to extract, how do I know BryteFlow can take care of it?
BryteFlow can handle data replication from any API, flat files or legacy databases like SAP, Oracle, MySQL, SQL Server and more. We have often cut down data access time for clients like Vocus by 75%. So rest assured your data is in good hands.
