Press Release

HVR, a Fivetran company and leading provider of real-time cloud data replication technology, today announced it has expanded its advanced SAP data extraction capabilities for SAP ERP and S/4HANA, enabling organisations to seamlessly leverage their SAP data for broader, real-time analytics. 

Ninety-four percent of the world’s 500 largest companies are SAP customers, and many of them rely on SAP ERP, deploying SAP ECC or S/4HANA to support critical business processes. As organisations continue to understand the value of analysing data in a timely manner to increase revenue, minimise risk, and lower costs, they must consolidate data from multiple sources, including SAP, into cloud-based analytical systems, data warehouses, and data lakes. But, accessing this valuable data outside of the SAP application is complex, costly, and resource-intensive.

HVR is a cost-effective solution that simplifies the data extraction process by capturing SAP data continuously and in real time. It equips organisations with the flexibility to seamlessly integrate SAP data into cloud-based platforms for deeper business insights and real-time analytical reporting. 

With this expansion, customers will benefit from the following features: 

1. SAP Unpack: Makes SAP ECC’s cluster, pool, and long text tables transparent without any additional footprint on the SAP source, accelerating table replication.

2. SAP AppConnect: Enables customers to use HVR’s log-based change data capture without direct access to the application database to comply with SAP licensing or company policy. 

3. SAP Table Explore: Helps customers easily select relevant source tables for replication based on the selection of functional SAP modules like Finance, Sales & Distribution, or Plant Maintenance.

Additional key benefits include the SAP dictionary integration, HVR’s unique log-based change data capture (CDC) technology for SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA, and HVR’s distributed architecture, among others.

“With over 17,000 subscribers to SAP’s S/4HANA, HVR is delighted to further its partnership with SAP to make real-time data accessible for optimum business decision-making,” said Edwin Commandeur, managing consultant and SAP expert at HVR. “Customers can now work through challenging data models and licensing restrictions to access their data seamlessly and securely. This expansion significantly simplifies replicating SAP data, without slowing down SAP’s transaction processing.”

The HVR platform is a reliable, secure, and scalable way to quickly and efficiently integrate large data volumes in complex environments, enabling real-time data updates, access, and analysis. HVR facilitates the adoption of the three major cloud platforms – AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud – with Snowflake as a prominent choice on these cloud platforms. Data is replicated from the most widely-used data platforms, including SAP, and validated to ensure the data delivered is accurate and made available for real-time consumption by key stakeholders.
