History of SAP Data Services-How SAP Data Service Evolved
In previous article Introduction to SAP Data Services, we explained what SAP Data Service is.
SAP Data Service product has gone through many phases and sometimes referred with some different names like “SAP BusinessObjects Data Service” or just some other name. In this article, we will give a brief detail on how SAP Data Service was evolved over time.
Evolution of SAP Data Service and SAP BusinessObjects Data Service:
SAP Data Service (SDS) was not directly developed by SAP. It went through multiple evolution and acquisitions.
Acta Technology Inc. was provider of first real time data integration platform. The two software products provided by Acta were an ETL tool, named as Data Integration (DI) tool also known as ‘Actaworks’ and a Data Management or Data Quality (DQ) tool.
BusinessObjects, a French company acquired Acta Technology Inc. in the year 2002.
BusinessObjects rebranded the two products of Acta as BusinessObjects Data Integration (BODI) tool and BusinessObjects Data Quality (BODQ) tool.
In the year 2007, SAP, legend in ERP solutions, acquired BusinessObjects and renamed the products as SAP BODI and SAP BODQ.
Later in the year 2008 SAP integrated both software products into a single end to end software product and named it as SAP BusinessObjects Data Services (BODS) which provides both data integration and data management solutions. In the earlier versions of SAP BODS text data processing solution is also included with it.
When SAP released Data Services 4.2, they removed Business Objects and changed the name to ‘SAP Data Services (SDS)’.
