Benefits of using Talend Studio to extract data from SAP
When you have high volumes of information from the SAP system, extracting relevant information can be very challenging. Direct connection to SAP servers may cause connection reset or out of memory exceptions. To address this issue and to make it easier for you to offload data massively, Talend Studio provides you the ability to store data on a disk in the SAP server before transfering the said data to a Talend server.
