SAP Data Intelligence Deployment Options

What is the purpose of SAP data intelligence deployment options? How does this data intelligence deploy? These are some of the questions we will discuss.

 What Are SAP Data Intelligence Deployment Options?

SAP data intelligence deployment options are used to transport data from one place to another. It is used by SAP for data transfers. 

The following are the SAP data intelligence deployment options:

Data Transport Service (DTS):

DTS is software used for transporting data from one place to another. It is used for moving data from one place to another via different protocols. 

DTS is also used for synchronizing data from one system to another. There are different types of DTS like DTSS (SAP transport service), DTSO (SAP Online Transport Service), and DTSM (SAP Manufacturing Transport Service).

Enterprise Replication Server (ERS):

ERS is software used for transporting data in real-time mode. It helps in transferring information from one system to another and it supports all the transaction types, including batch transactions. 

The Enterprise Replication Server can be installed on AIX, HP-UX, Linux / UNIX, Microsoft Windows, and Solaris operating systems.

Advantages of SAP Data Intelligence Deployment Options

What are the advantages of this? The following are the advantages of SAP Data Intelligence Deployment Options:

  • It is used as an alternative solution to transfer large volumes of data from one system to another.
  • Supports all the different types of transactions, including batch processing and real-time transaction.
  • It can be easily integrated with other third-party applications like SAP R/3, SAP ERP, and so on.
  • It supports all the different types of operating systems like Windows 2000/2003/XP, Linux, Solaris, AIX and HP-UX, etc.

Disadvantages of SAP Data Intelligence Deployment

What are the disadvantages of these options? The following are the disadvantages of SAP Data Intelligence Deployment:

There is no direct link between different systems using this tool. Hence it acts more like a mediator between two systems.

This means that it cannot be used as an alternate solution for integration between two systems. Instead, it can be used as a mediator between two different systems where there is no integration required between two systems.

But the only transfer of data or information between two different systems is needed. For example, if two systems need to exchange information daily.

Then Enterprise Replication Server can be used as a mediator between both the systems. Instead of integrating these two systems because there is no integration between these two systems.

Then it won’t make any difference if you use an enterprise replication server between these two systems. Enterprise replication server supports only batch processing and real-time transaction. 

It does not support ad-hoc processing at all. Hence this tool can be used as a mediator between two systems where there is no need of integrating the two systems.

This is because Enterprise Replication Server does not support ad-hoc processing at all. So it can be used as a mediator between two different systems, where there is no need of integrating the two systems.
