Modern, hybrid IT landscapes rely on resistant and decoupled software architectures. Different systems and applications need to communicate with each other to pass along relevant information. To better support this common architecture pattern, SAP is broadening eventing capabilities on SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) and for SAP S/4HANA.
An additional service plan for an SAP Event Mesh capability is planned to allow IT departments to create an “event mesh” for event distribution across system borders. It is designed to support a new level of extensions using information across the entire enterprise. The service can support integration of a variety of business application systems running in customer data centers or even in customer accounts on large-scale cloud infrastructure providers.
SAP also plans to release an event enablement add-on to the SAP NetWeaver technology platform for S/4HANA customers. This add-on, initially introduced in 2020 for previous SAP ERP releases, can now expand the application’s scope and support SAP S/4HANA moving forward. It is designed to enable SAP customers to more easily define their own events required to implement event-driven architecture for multiple generations of SAP ERP applications with the same technology.
We are proud that ASAPIO technology is now available from SAP and enables customers for event-driven architecture. Code-less and real-time integration is strategy. The Add-on enables thousands of business events across all applications for event messaging and mass data transfer. SAP Customers will benefit from shorter time-to-market for any connectivity requirement, lowest system impact, reduced operational costs and true real-time connectivity.

In combination, these two new additions to SAP BTP allow customers to span an enterprise-wide event mesh including SAP BTP, SAP S/4HANA, and SAP ERP while also incorporating applications on third-party technology. This can help reduce the complexity of creating and integrating new applications in IT landscapes and increase the resilience of these integrated landscapes.
