Automate and extend processes online with an SAP integration platform
Unify your landscape of diverse IT architectures seamlessly with the SAP Business Connector component. With open and non-proprietary business-to-business (B2B) integration standards, you can secure bidirectional, real-time, and asynchronous communication, electronic data interchange (EDI), and data synchronization between your IT systems and SAP solutions.
Because reusing existing IT infrastructure and expertise lowers the cost of deployment. Our component provides an integration platform to increase efficiency across the business and the customer experience by allowing tight enterprise application integration (EAI) between your third parties’ and customers’ infrastructures.
With SAP Business Connector, you can:
Provide business partners with B2B integration tools, BAPI programming interface, and intermediate document formats (IDoc) through online, secure XML-based services with minimal disruption and ramp-up time
Integrate trading partners to automate data exchange and extend the reach of your SAP software infrastructure to third parties, customers, banks, and government agencies
Support real-time data integration to allow bidirectional data transfer between online resources and SAP applications
Connect your in-house legacy system or third-party application with an in-house SAP software system
Implement and roll out EAI and EDI integration initiatives within days, not months
