Headline: How SAP Supports Hybrid Integration Scenarios for the Intelligent Enterprise
Customers are accelerating their move to the cloud to keep pace with changing circumstances — be it to reduce their carbon footprint, increase their productivity, or react more flexibly to the needs of their customers.
Over years and decades, companies have implemented streamlined business processes in their value chains using the features of on-premise SAP systems to adapt the standard functionality to their needs. However, within the growing heterogeneous landscapes of SAP and non-SAP systems, these customizations became more complex and expensive to maintain. Additionally, most of the customers use hybrid landscapes with a mix of cloud and on-premise systems to run their businesses.
With the move to SAP S/4HANA, customers have the chance to standardize their business processes. This has two benefits: Customers can avoid modifications in their SAP S/4HANA systems to the absolute minimum, and they can implement process extensions or integrations to other SAP, partner, or third-party systems using SAP Cloud Platform Extension Suite and SAP Cloud Platform Integration Suite. This is true for both SAP S/4HANA Cloud and SAP S/4HANA on premise.
What Are the Advantages of Using SAP Cloud Platform Integration Suite?
As an integral part of SAP’s Business Technology Platform, SAP Cloud Platform Integration Suite allows simplifying integration for both SAP as well as third-party scenarios. This versatile, fully managed, multi-cloud suite was recently rated by Gartner as a Leader in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform-as-a-Service.
