How it works

S/4 HANA & SAP ECC Integration

enosix takes the complexity out of SAP 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.

“When I started at Stanley Black & Decker and saw that we had SAP, I thought this would be a huge bottleneck. Now I wish that more of my systems were on SAP – enosix turned a pain into an opportunity for me.”

– Stephen Driggs, Head of Global CRM, Stanley Black & Decker

SAP ERP integrations, simpler than you ever imagined

The patent-pending enosix platform (certified for ECC and S/4HANA) lets you deliver powerful, real-time, bidirectional integrations between your SAP ERP system and your front-end systems of engagement 70-90% faster and cheaper than competing approaches.

Don’t rebuild your SAP business logic – reuse it

The core of our highly-scalable technology sits inside your SAP system – enabling it to leverage all your existing SAP processes, custom fields, business logic, and security without the time-consuming and risky need to attempt to reproduce those processes repeatedly in middleware or front-end applications.

Simple but powerful API for everyone

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.  These APIs can be consumed by any front-end via REST API or through our SDK for Salesforce integrations.

Pre-built apps for Salesforce

For the most common Salesforce use cases, we also have a suite of front-end applications that allow you to get started in days to weeks – not the 9-18 months typical of other integration approaches. These include components for pulling virtually any data out of SAP; creating quotes, orders, and other sales documents (including with SAP Variant Configuration); and simple but powerful integrations to Salesforce CPQ and B2B Commerce.

The technology behind the product

SAP-certified add-on

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 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 integrations). 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.

Streamline the switch to S/4HANA

Because the enosix framework runs in both ECC and S/4HANA, and our platform uses the same interface for your front-end applications in both cases, moving is easy. When you’re ready to upgrade from ECC to S/4HANA, your applications that have been integrated via enosix can be easily upgraded without the need to rework them as part of the move. And that means you can use the years before a move to start doing your SAP ECC integration work while you have time, rather than all at once during the crunch of trying to transition.
