Overview
Bottom rule

InfoSphere Information Server Pack for SAP Applications V7.0 is designed to deliver enhanced automation, improved usability, and robust performance while helping you integrate SAP applications.

Key enhancements include:

  • Rapid modeling for SAP applications: Helps you automate the discovery of SAP data objects and extract relevant metadata. It is designed to set up data structures for business objects that require migration. It also helps you create corresponding jobs for extracting and loading the data.
  • Rapid extract, transform, and load (ETL) job generation for SAP applications: Helps you automate SAP configuration and validation table extraction for use in initial SAP projects such as SAP-to-SAP migration and integration of SAP data with a data warehouse or master data management (MDM) solution.
  • Enhanced support for intermediate document (IDoc) metadata: Offers data lineage for your SAP integration data flows. It also helps you design your ETL and data quality jobs while SAP is offline.
  • Robust performance for IDoc imports: Enables the use of parallelism while importing IDocs.
  • Improved real-time support for SAP applications: Delivers enhanced real-time support for SAP applications, including new web services for IDocs.

Charge metrics definitions

Server

Server is the unit of measure by which this program is licensed. A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user or client devices. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for each server regardless of the number of processor cores or partitions in the server on which the program runs or each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.
