SAP's Supply Chain Event Management (SAP EM) allows companies to improve supply chain efficiency and promote standardization across SAP systems. Learn more about the functionality SAP EM offers and how it can be integrated with the SAP Business Information Warehouse (SAP BW) using extractors and function modules that eliminate the need for manual intervention. Integrating SAP EM with BW allows you to more easily provide end users with enhanced reporting capabilities.
Key Concept
By configuring BW profiles to access SAP EM tables, they can be used to integrate the two systems without the need for manual data mapping. These profiles are subdivided into groups that automatically couple extraction-ready SAP EM tables with SAP BW extractor fields. In addition to mapping BW to header information, event handlers, and other event-related records, the profiles include a group that support custom ABAP code to access data beyond the extraction tables in SAP EM.
Recently, my company helped one of our clients integrate SAP's Supply Chain Event Management (SAP EM) with SAP BW. SAP EM is a component of SAP SCM 4.0 that offers a broad range of functions for tracking, notification, and alert creation.
