The SAP Integrated Business Planning (SAP IBP) for Supply Chain Data Integration application provides a mechanism for importing and exporting data between on-premise systems in the customer environment and SAP IBP applications in the SAP Cloud environment.
The following figures are showing the main integration scenarios with their tools and the available options for importing and exporting data.

Data Integration Process
There are two phases in the data integration process:
The system reads the contents of the CSV file and loads them into a staging table, which is an intermediate storage space. Rejections can occur at this point if, for example, the system cannot parse a file.
The data is moved from the intermediate staging table to the application tables. Sometimes, records are rejected in this phase. When this occurs, the rejection appears as a rejection code. The system retains data load reports according to the global parameter setting.
When you set up your SAP IBP system, you must create and activate time profiles, master data types, and planning areas before loading data.
Once you have set up your system, you can import the following types of data in the sequence shown, using the Data Integration application:
