Integrate all kinds of SAP- and BW data in PowerPivot. Xtract PPV gives you access to SAP tables, Queries, BAPIs and RFC as well as BW Cubes and ABAP Reports.

Xtract PPV is a middleware component to extract data from SAP systems and load it into PowerPivot. It has two components: Xtract Server and Xtract Designer.

The Xtract Server is responsible for the extraction. PowerPivot communicates with the Xtract Server, und this in turn with SAP. You use the Xtract Designer to design and manage of the extractions. The Designer directly communicates also with SAP, not to transport data, but just to query metadata during the design process.

Xtract PowerPivot is a set of eight extraction types which make it possible to cover the entire range of demands placed on SAP data extraction:
 

  • Xtract Table accesses Tables and Views.
  • Xtract Query accesses Queries.
  • Xtract BAPI accesses BAPIs and RFC function modules.
  • Xtract BW Cube extracts data from SAP BW InfoCubes and QueryCubes (also known as BEX Queries).
  • Xtract Hierarchy extracts Hierarchies from an SAP BW / BI system.
  • Xtract Open Hub Service extracts InfoSpokes and OHS destinations.
  • Xtract DeltaQ extracts Data Sources (OLTP).
  • Xtract Report executes ABAP Reports.

You can start the Xtract Server either as a console program or as a Windows service. If you develop extractions on your local PC, it is easier to start the console program. In an environment in which multiple users access the same repository, you should run Xtract Server as a Windows Service on a central server.

Xtract PPV is licensed per extraction server.  For each production license a test license is also included. It does not matter how many users view the data and how many developpers are involved or how many different SAP systems Xtract PPV accesses.
