S/4 HANA & SAP ECC Integration
enosix takes the complexity out of SAP ECC integration, to let you get up and running 70-90% faster than competing approaches, while still providing secure, scalable, reliable connections between your front-end systems of engagement and your SAP ERP core.
The technology behind the product
We’re the only integration platform that runs INSIDE SAP… All API calls, database queries, etc. are made inside SAP and all of the logic that combines the results is in SAP, too. This means we only need to pass out to the front-end system the data that it needs and not all the intermediate results. This greatly reduces the number of needed API calls, bandwidth, and run-time.
No IDOCs or JCo connector
Really. That will sound like magic to those experienced with SAP ECC integrations, but we built our own, patent-pending communication framework specifically to work around the issues of the older technologies (which were created long before anyone thought about doing real-time SAP ECC & SAP S/4HANA integration). This framework lets us be much more efficient in how we call for and return data from SAP. The results our platform returns are deeply nested XML or JSON, which allows a single call to get back all of the information you could want about your customers, orders, etc., further improving performance and resource utilization.
Build time, performance and reusability others can’t match
The overall result of our approach is significantly reduced load on your SAP system compared to traditional approaches of calling standard SAP BAPIs and piecing together the results in middleware or on the front-end. It also means far greater code reusability across different front-end systems (nearly 100% vs. typically 40% for ETL/iPaaS solutions or 0% for solutions that live in the front-end).
In addition to our core framework, we provide a humanized interface that simplifies your development work. We’ve created a library of ABAP Rapid Integration Objects (RIOs) that perform common transformations using all the right BAPIs and exits to apply the business logic you already have, meaning your implementation times will be 70-90% shorter than custom projects.
Easy to use API
If you want to expand beyond our suite of front-end components, you can access the RIOs via an Apex SDK in Salesforce or a REST API for everywhere else. These RIOs live in the SAP application layer and mimic the transactions you already use in SAP. This lets you retrieve or create objects, like a customer detail or sales order, with a single API call, rather than having to piece them together from dozens of queries and BAPIs using competitive connectors. Our library contains over 40 standard RIOs, and we’ve developed dozens more for customers with special use cases. And no need to learn German abbreviations, since our RIOs all use friendly, English names.
