Both of the promised post-RTM packages of connectors for use with SQL Server 2008 Enterprise and Developer are now available for download, since last Friday's release of the October Feature Pack that contains the SAP BI connector. Each set consists of a connection manager, source, and destination, and is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. In both cases, Microsoft took advantage of the existing expertise of third-party companies to develop these high-performance connectivity components.
For SAP BI 7, Microsoft licensed components from the Xtract IS suite by Theobald Software of Germany and adapted them more to the look and feel of the built-in components. Download from: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=228de03f-3b5a-428a-923f-58a033d316e1&DisplayLang=en
