What’s the difference between a custom-made pizza and mastering the SAP Integration Suite?

Surprisingly little— both allow you the freedom to choose exactly what you want, tailoring it to your specific taste or needs.

Just as with a pizza, where you can select from a variety of toppings, crusts, and sauces to create your perfect combination, the SAP Integration Suite offers a range of features and functionalities that can be mixed and matched to suit your enterprise’s unique integration requirements. 

But, as with pizza, there’s a caveat: overload it with too many toppings, and you risk losing the essence of what makes it great. Similarly, with the SAP Integration Suite, while the array of features is vast and versatile, knowing which ones to use and how to combine them effectively is key to crafting that perfect ‘recipe’ for your sustainable growth strategy.

So, let’s roll up our sleeves and delve into the capabilities of the SAP Integration Suite. We’ll explore how its diverse functionalities can be strategically selected and integrated to support future-proof and market-ready enterprise solutions that align with your business’s unique needs and goals.

SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP): The Foundation for Integration

SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP): The Foundation for Integration

Before we zoom into the SAP integration suite, it’s important to pause and shed light on the SAP BTP. It’s a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that offers the bedrock of the SAP Integration Suite & is structured around five BTP pillars.

  • Integration
  • App Dev
  • Automation
  • Data Analytics
  • AI

SAP BTPWith SAP BTP, you can dabble with its “testing services,” including the SAP Integration Suite.

SAP has designed this integration suite to be a resilient, all-encompassing, enterprise-level Integration Platform. 

It comes as no surprise that the SAP Integration Suite is a recognized leader in Gartner’s IPaaS Magic Quadrant.

The Suite itself is a collection of diverse capabilities designed to operate both independently and collaboratively, fulfilling a range of integration needs both now and in the future.

The Integration Assessment

Organizations, especially large enterprises, always aim to streamline their integration efforts through mergers, acquisitions, and architecture changes. SAP’s ISA-M offers a straightforward approach for efficient integration. This established methodology facilitates efficient integration and comprehensive project management. 

The SAP Integration Suite also includes the Integration Assessment feature. You can easily leverage the SAP Integration Assessment capability within the Integration Suite to define & implement best practices that align with your organizational roadmap.

Simplify Integration Patterns with the SAP Cloud Integration

SAP Integration SuiteSAP Cloud Integration, formerly known as Cloud Platform Integration (CPI), is a key service in the Integration Suite and BTP. Whether dealing with internal processes or external partnerships, this tool helps you set up process integrations through an easy-to-use graphical interface and pre-set integration steps. The service offers:

  • Orchestration: Managing integration processes.
  • Connectivity: Linking with any system- SAP/ non-SAP/ on-premises/cloud-based.
  • Data Transformation: Changing message formats and mapping data.

Your team can easily connect different business systems, even if they’re not a part of the SAP ecosystem. You can build connections or use pre-made solutions from the API Business Hub. This flexibility helps cut costs and speeds up setting up these connections, making your business operations more efficient and cost-effective.

Streamline Modern Interfaces with the SAP API Management

Forward-looking businesses are relying on modern interfaces like REST APIs to build integrations or applications. The expansion of REST APIs necessitates the use of a central governance-building piece. The SAP API Management within the SAP Integration Suite provides this capability. It offers:

  • Security: Keeping your data safe.
  • Mediation: Ensuring smooth communication between systems.
  • Traffic Management: Protecting from overloads.
  • Analytics: Tracking how well your APIs are doing.
  • Documentation: Making it easy to understand and use your APIs.

SAP API Management also includes a SAP Business Hub offering:

  • Documentation: API information.
  • Testing Tools: For trying out APIs.
  • Code Snippets: To aid development.
  • Subscription Options: For easy API access.

This makes API interactions simpler for developers and integration experts.

Migrate Confidently with the  SAP BTP Migration Assessment

On average, over 12,000 customers use SAP Process Orchestration worldwide. Businesses must have a detailed roadmap to support their cloud migration from Process Integration to Process Orchestration (SAP PI_PO). That involves moving towards modern, unified, cloud-oriented integration tools. SAP Migration Assessment makes this easier. 

You can easily switch between SAP Process Integration (SAP PI) and SAP Cloud Integration with the SAP Integration Suite. 

 SAP Migration Assessment tools help you gauge the technical effort needed to move from on-prem to SAP BTP Cloud. It also analyzes your current middleware landscape and assesses the feasibility of migrating different integration scenarios to a unified platform.
