  8. Hello.

    I figured out your product and i’m interested to have more information about it.

    My use case is the following: I have a Tableau Server installation with about 1,500 users. My ERP is SAP, but but for dashboards I need to use MS Excel and other type of databases like MSSQL where the data is loaded from SAP. I’m finding a product that could connect (Live and Extract) to SAP BO Universes from tableau Server. Note: The SAP BO Universes that I want to connect to tableau already have user secutity definied. so I need that, when a user connects to a published tableau dashboard, this dashboard show only the relevant information for the signed user. ¿Could your product meet this functionalllity?
