I have user manual how to connect Informatica and SAP. There are some examples, like.
1. an ABAP program - generated by Informaticas tool, deployed to SAP, runs on SAP, result is dumped into some file, and then imported to informatica over NFS or FTP
2. by running a BAPI or RFC
3. ALE, receiving or sending IDOCs directly from/to SAP.
And that all is OK, but I'm curious how to connect Informatica with XI/PI? Is there some blog or user-manual, is there some specific adapter?
from most of the information around it seems informatica can create file that can be used by PI or vice versa. So basically it will be via files that informatica - PI exchange of information can happen. The BAPI/RFC, IDoc etc can be used to interface between SAP (ECC,R3) and PI
>how to connect Informatica and SAP
Data integration using the ABAP program
IDoc integration using ALE
Data integration using RFC/BAPI functions
Data migration integration
Business content integration
If you wann to use PI in between SAP & Informatica as Prateek & Shaba mentioned you can use File to connect Informatica & PI.
