SAP Data Services Review: "Faster deployment times with higher data accuracy"

Data Services is used mainly within IT to migrate data from our legacy system into SAP ERP. DS is used for selection, enrichment, validation and transfer of data.
  • Integration with SAP ERP/ECC works really well.
  • A lot of flexibility in data creation, with different types of communication capabilities like BAPIs, IDocs, and Batch input.
  • Reliable and consistent results and easily enforceable data templates.
  • Initial setup of rules requires more technical expertise than master data management teams are typically used to.
DS is extremely well suited for legacy data migration, enrichment, and validation. The large data volumes can easily be handled by the system and this reduces the deployment time, especially for SAP ERP. The error reports accurately provide problematic data and it is very easy to create organization-specific data validation rules.

It is used to address various types of business problems such as loading vendor details, cost information, customer data, material descriptions, etc.
  • Extracting data from various types of data sources
  • Transforming data using joins, functions, look ups, etc.
  • Loading data into different kinds of targets
  • Debugging is not very easy. When one wants to see the flow of data from one Query to another, the process is not very smooth and efficient.
  • A lot of functions do not behave the way they should. I have faced problems with the count() function.
  • I have faced problems while loading Excel files. The same set of options will work in one case but not in the other.
It is well suited when you want to extract data from a source supported by data services, to perform various transforms on that data (such as joins, look ups, applying functions, performing delta merge, etc.,) and also to further load the transformed data into the target. Data Services allows you to schedule the jobs as per your business requirement. Therefore, you can manage the loading of data into the target as per your needs.

I have faced issues in performing one time updates for historical data using Data Services. Map operation does not behave the way it should and therefore I would not recommend it for those scenarios.

SAP Data Services is used as an integration tool within the group BI solution. It is mainly used to load sources that do not support realtime replication.
  • Loading files from landing area into the database.
  • Integrating various sources with SAP HANA.
  • Multi-developer environments.
  • Loading of XML sources.
  • Type two dimensions could be handled more elegantly.
  • Importing HANA calcultation views into the datastore is not intuitive.
  • Scheduler is very basic.
Data services is quite easy to learn for someone with previous ETL tool experience. You are able to publish web service jobs in data services which work quite well, however note that this consumes a large amount of memory. Template tables are a very nice feature which automatically creates target tables based on the input data. This makes rapid development of new source loads very efficient.
