What is iPaaS?

Learn how SAP Integration Suite, an integration platform as a service, can help you become future ready to connect and automate your business.

Connect and Automate Your Business Processes

Integration, the foundation of an intelligent enterprise, is becoming the number one strategic priority for organisations. Only by connecting customer, product, employee, and brand experiences with business operations, continuously and in real time, can organisations exploit the full potential of their system landscape and make the right decision at the right time.

Prioritize Your Integration Strategy to Enable Readiness for the Future

Now more than ever, integration is the key to solving fundamental business problems. When adopted strategically, integration can bridge silos across applications, data, and processes, helping facilitate enterprise agility and business model flexibility. It can provide a foundation for applying intelligence, enabling digital interactions, and creating the connected digital experiences that employees want, business partners need, and customers expect.

 

Whether it’s connecting and automating business processes, meeting e-government and regulatory compliance, powering e-commerce, delivering customer insight, connecting business-to-business (B2B) partners, or creating a future-ready IT landscape, mastering exploding demand for integration is not easy.

 

Given the complexity of modern IT networks, traditional integration middleware technologies no longer measure up to today’s integration challenges, making it time to adopt a modern approach.

Make Integration the Backbone of Your Intelligent Enterprise

Businesses now derive significant value from holistically connecting data, technology, and business processes – not just within the enterprise but beyond it. Add to this the rapid adoption of microservices and new technologies, which need to be paired with existing applications, systems, and business processes to realise their full financial impact. This means the role integration plays in the success of any enterprise is only going to grow.

 

Companies are seeking to execute complete visibility of their business, customers, developers, supply chain, and more. Only by seamlessly integrating many parts of the business can a real-time 360-degree view be established and leveraged by management.

 

Whether your focus is on lead-to-cash, source-to-pay, hire-to-retire, or other core operations, SAP Integration Suite enables you to smoothly integrate business processes across SAP and third-party applications, data hubs, trading partners, and more. It also allows you to accelerate connectivity with third-party cloud applications using thousands of prebuilt integration content, feature-rich connectors, API catalogs, and asynchronous application events. In addition, it enables you to modernize your integration capabilities across applications, B2B processes, data, events, and process integration.
