A Strategy for Collecting and Transporting BW Requests

The author presents an alternative method for collecting and transporting requests using SAP's BW Transport Connection. The complex models often used for BW implementations require a collection/transport strategy, like the one in this article, for BW requests.


SAP created the Correction and Transport Organizer (CTO) to move configuration settings, programs, and data across different systems. BW, however, uses a modified version of the CTO called the BW Transport Connection. With standard CTO, collecting and transporting requests is a relatively simple process. This is not necessarily the case with the BW Transport Connection, particularly for complex data models. You need a transport strategy with BW, so I'm presenting a process using the BW Transport Connection that has worked well at many of my clients. This process applies to all versions of BW.
