When you run a file mode session to read data from SAP through ABAP, you can configure the FileCompressEnable custom property to enable compressed data transfer. When you compress data, you can increase the session performance and decrease the disk storage that the staging file needs.
The Source_For_BCI relational target in the BCI listener mapping that Informatica ships contains a new column called DataSourceName. You can use this field to partition the data that the Source_For_BCI relational target receives from SAP.
Informatica ships an activation mapping along with the
file. You can use the activation mapping to activate multiple DataSources in SAP simultaneously.
When you use numeric delta pointers to extract business content data, you can extract the changed data alone without doing a full transfer of the entire data.
