Replicate SAP data to Azure Synapse without coding
Continual SAP data replication to Azure Synapse with BryteFlow
Moving SAP data to Azure Synapse? Have you decided on which SAP replication tool to use? There are many automated data replication tools available to ETL your SAP data to Azure Synapse, so how do you choose? What you need to focus on is real-time data ingestion that is cost effective, easy to use and fast. That’s exactly what BryteFlow specialises in -automated data integration that provides ready-to-use data in real-time, without ANY coding.
Codeless, automated, real-time SAP to Azure Synapse replication
If you are using Azure Synapse as your data warehouse, BryteFlow helps you to ingest SAP data to Azure Synapse in almost real-time and refresh it continually, using Change Data Capture to sync with changes at source. BryteFlow has an intuitive drag and drop interface and built-in automation so there’s no coding required. Just a few clicks to connect and you can begin to access prepared data in Azure Synapse for analytics. Merge data from any database, any file or API with your SAP data and transform it to a format that can be consumed on Azure Synapse. BryteFlow provides automated data reconciliation to check data completeness and you will get alerts and notifications if data is missing or incomplete.

Real-time, codeless, automated SAP data replication to Azure Synapse Analytics
This data replication tool replicates really large volumes of SAP data to your Azure Synapse database fast
BryteFlow uses parallel multi-thread loading, smart partitioning and compression of data to ingest terabytes of data for SAP replication to Azure Synapse. BryteFlow XL Ingest has been specially created for the initial full ingest of large volume data at super-fast speeds. After this BryteFlow Ingest takes over for continual data replication.
SAP replication to Azure Synapse is completely automated
Most SAP data tools will set up connectors and pipelines to stream your SAP data to Azure Synapse but there is usually coding involved at some point for e.g. to merge data for basic SAP CDC. With BryteFlow you never face any of those annoyances. SAP data replication, data merges, SCD Type2 history, data transformation and data reconciliation are all automated and self-service with a point and click interface that ordinary business users can use with ease.
Our data integration software uses efficient log-based SAP CDC to replicate changes, not time-consuming ETL
Very often software depends on a full refresh to update destination data with changes at source. This is time consuming and affects source systems negatively, impacting productivity and performance. BryteFlow uses log-based Change Data Capture which is zero impact and uses database transaction logs to query SAP data at source and copies only the changes into the Azure Synapse database. The data in the Azure Synapse data warehouse is updated in real-time or at a frequency of your choice. Log based SAP CDC is absolutely the fastest, most efficient way to replicate your SAP data to Azure Synapse.
Cut down time spent by Database Administrators in managing the replication
You need to work out how much time your DBAs will need to spend on the solution, in managing backups, managing dependencies until the changes have been processed, in configuring full backups and then work out the true Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of the solution. The replication user in most of these replication scenarios needs to have the highest sysadmin privileges.
With BryteFlow, it is “set and forget”. There is no involvement from the DBAs required on a continual basis, hence the TCO is much lower. Further, you do not need sysadmin privileges for the replication user.
Automated data reconciliation in the Azure Synapse Analytics data warehouse
With BryteFlow, data in the Azure Synapse warehouse is validated against data in the SAP replication database continually or you can choose a frequency for this to happen. It performs point-in-time data completeness checks for complete datasets including type-2. It compares row counts and columns checksum in the SAP replication database and Azure Synapse data at a very granular level.Very few Azure data integration software provide this feature.
Data from SAP to Azure Synapse is monitored for data completeness from start to finish
BryteFlow provides end-to-end monitoring of data. Reliability is our strong focus as the success of the analytics projects depends on this reliability. Unlike other software which set up connectors and pipelines to SAP source applications and stream your data without checking the data accuracy or completeness, BryteFlow makes it a point to track your data. For e.g. if you are replicating SAP data to Azure Synapse at 2pm on Thursday, Nov. 2019, all the changes that happened till that point will be replicated to the Azure Synapse database, latest change last so the data will be replicated with all inserts, deletes and changes present at source at that point in time.
The option to archive data while preserving SCD Type 2 history
BryteFlow provides time-stamped data and the versioning feature allows you to retrieve data from any point on the timeline. This versioning feature is a ‘must have’ for historical and predictive trend analysis.
Your data maintains Referential Integrity
With BryteFlow you can maintain the referential integrity of your data when replicating SAP data to AWS Azure Synapse. What does this mean? Simply put, it means when there are changes in the SAP source and when those changes are replicated to the destination (Azure Synapse) you can put your finger exactly on the date, the time and the values that changed at the columnar level.
Support for flexible connections to SAP
BryteFlow supports flexible connections to SAP including: Database logs, ECC, HANA, S/4HANA and SAP Data Services. It also supports Pool and Cluster tables. Import any kind of data from SAP into Azure Synapse with BryteFlow. It will automatically create the tables on Azure Synapse so you don’t need to bother with any manual coding.
BryteFlow creates a data lake on Azure Synapse so the data model is as is in source – no modification needed
BryteFlow converts various SAP domain values to standard and consistent data types on the destination. For instance, dates are stored as separate domain values in SAP and sometimes dates and times are separated. BryteFlow provides a GUI to convert these automatically to a date data type on the destination, or to combine date and time into timestamp fields on the destination. This is maintained through the initial sync and the incremental sync by BryteFlow.
Merge SAP data with data from other sources
With BryteFlow you can merge any kind of data from multiple sources (any database, any file, any API) with your data from SAP for Analytics or Machine Learning.
Data replication is 6x faster than Oracle GoldenGate’s
BryteFlow replication of data is 6x faster than GoldenGate’s. This is based on actual experience with a client and not an idle boast. Try out BryteFlow for yourself and see exactly how fast it works to migrate your SAP data to Azure Synapse.
Data gets automatic catch-up from network dropout
If there is a power outage or network failure will you need to start the SAP data replication to Azure Synapse process over again? Yes, with most software but not with BryteFlow. You can simply pick up where you left off – automatically.
