Frequently Asked SAP BusinessObjects BI Driver Questions

Learn more about SAP BusinessObjects BI drivers & connectors for data and analytics integration


The SAP BusinessObjects BI driver acts like a bridge that facilitates communication between various applications and SAP BusinessObjects BI, allowing the application to read data as if it were a relational database. The SAP BusinessObjects BI driver abstracts the complexities of SAP BusinessObjects BI APIs, authentication methods, and data types, making it simple for any application to connect to SAP BusinessObjects BI data in real-time via standard SQL queries.

Working with a SAP BusinessObjects BI Driver is different than connecting with SAP BusinessObjects BI through other means. SAP BusinessObjects BI API integrations require technical experience from a software developer or IT resources. Additionally, due to the constant evolution of APIs and services, once you build your integration you have to constantly maintain SAP BusinessObjects BI integration code moving forward.

By comparison, our SAP BusinessObjects BI Drivers offer codeless access to live SAP BusinessObjects BI data for both technical and non-technical users alike. Any user can install our drivers and begin working with live SAP BusinessObjects BI data from any client application. Because our drivers conform to standard data interfaces like ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET etc. they offer a consistent, maintenance-free interface to SAP BusinessObjects BI data. We manage all of the complexities of SAP BusinessObjects BI integration within each driver and deploy updated drivers as systems evolve so your applications continue to run seamlessly.

Many organizations draw attention to their library of connectors. After all, data connectivity is a core capability needed for applications to maximize their business value. However, it is essential to understand exactly what you are getting when evaluating connectivity. Some vendors are happy to offer connectors that implement basic proof-of-concept level connectivity. These connectors may highlight the possibilities of working with SAP BusinessObjects BI, but often only provide a fraction of capability. Finding real value from these connectors usually requires additional IT or development resources.

Unlike these POC-quality connectors, every CData SAP BusinessObjects BI driver offers full-featured SAP BusinessObjects BI data connectivity. The CData SAP BusinessObjects BI drivers support extensive SAP BusinessObjects BI integration, providing access to all of the SAP BusinessObjects BI data and meta-data needed by enterprise integration or analytics projects. Each driver contains a powerful embedded SQL engine that offers applications easy and high-performance access to all SAP BusinessObjects BI data. In addition, our drivers offer robust authentication and security capabilities, allowing users to connect securely across a wide range of enterprise configurations. Compare drivers and connectors to read more about some of the benefits of CData's driver connectivity.

With our drivers and connectors, every data source is essentially SQL-based. The CData SAP BusinessObjects BI driver contains a full SQL-92 compliant engine that translates standard SQL queries into SAP BusinessObjects BI API calls dynamically. Queries are parsed and optimized for each data source, pushing down as much of the request to SAP BusinessObjects BI as possible. Any logic that can not be pushed to SAP BusinessObjects BI is handled transparently client-side by the driver/connector engine. Ultimately, this means that SAP BusinessObjects BI looks and acts exactly like a database to any client application or tool. Users can integrate live SAP BusinessObjects BI connectivity with ANY software solution that can talk to a standard database.

The SAP BusinessObjects BI drivers and connectors offer comprehensive access to SAP BusinessObjects BI data. Our SAP BusinessObjects BI driver exposes static and dynamic data and metadata, providing universal access to SAP BusinessObjects BI data for any enterprise analytics or data mangement use. To explore the SAP BusinessObjects BI driver data model, please review the edition-specific SAP BusinessObjects BI driver documentation.

Using the CData SAP BusinessObjects BI drivers and connectors, SAP BusinessObjects BI can be easily integrated with almost any application. Any software or technology that can integrate with a database or connect with standards-based drivers like ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET, etc., can use our drivers for live SAP BusinessObjects BI data connectivity. Explore some of the more popular SAP BusinessObjects BI data integrations online.
