Kettle & SAP : ProERPconn

Dear Kettle fans,

We have more good news from our friends at Proratio, a Pentaho partner of the first hour: apparently they finished porting the ProSAPConn SAP adapter to version 3.x of Kettle.  It’s now re-branded under the name ProERPconn.

For me it’s interesting to see this software grow and improve over time since the connector was the reason why Kettle got a plugin architecture in the first place. Back in 2003-2004 I added the capability to load plugins after contacts with Proratio in version 2.0 of Kettle.  That same plugin system survived a number of years (up until version 2.5) and it’s great to see that we now have the possibility to address SAP data using a 3.x version plugin as well.

Congratulations to the Proratio team!

Until next time,

  1. Hi,

    we want to extract information from SAP with Pentaho. Do you have any guide on how to do it? I think we need to install a complement called “proerpconn”. Where do we need to install it? In SAP Servers or in Pentaho application? Do we need to do any configuration in SAP part?
