SAP Business Connector

The SAP Business Connector allows the integration of different applications and technologies with SAP systems via open and non-proprietary standards. It uses the Internet as communication platform and allows you to highly automate your business processes. Thus, the SAP Business Connector seamlessly integrates different IT architectures with SAP systems.

All SAP functionality accessible via BAPIs and IDocs can be made available to business partners over the Internet as secure XML-based services. This XML service layer makes SAP functionality available to other applications either within the organization or other partners over the Internet. The other applications do not need any understanding of SAP BAPIs or internal data structures.

The SAP Business Connector allows bi-directional communication to and from SAP systems. This way, a single SAP function call can instantly invoke application services published by SAP Business Connector, making the information of the Web available from any SAP system. You can deploy SAP Business Connector to simply but effectively achieve business-to-business integration between trading partners, thereby extending the reach of your SAP infrastructure to customers, partners and suppliers.

Examples for applications may include real-time integration between supplier inventories and your SAP system, multi-vendor product, price and availability information and your purchasing application, or fulfillment and order tracking applications and your shippers' internal systems.

Deployment of SAP Business Connector happens in a matter of days rather than months. By reusing existing infrastructure and know-how, the cost of deployment is low. SAP Business Connector allows you to increase efficiency across the supply chain and customer loyalty by tightly integrating your business infrastructure with theirs.
