In some specialized environments, the addition of processes into an integrated workflow is almost impossible. Either the process is not accessible outside of the specialized environment or is accessible only via an API that is not accessible via standard scripting tools.
We have been working at providing this type of integration to the Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence community through specialized tasks that integrate directly with the SAP BusinessObjects infrastructure and Microsoft SQLServer SSIS. These tasks provide the ability to control the execution of ETL jobs and allow the refresh of documents on the SAP BusinessObjects platform as well as the execution of ETL tasks via the SSIS service from Microsoft.
