SAP Integration Speeds up Digital Transformation
Organizations that embed their systems on SAP accelerate projects to evolve their businesses in the Digital Business ecosystem.
Business evolution through systems integration
Full digital transformation brings numerous benefits for reaching new clients and markets. In the digital world, developing technology hubs enables a company to optimize all its processes and operations.
Digital tools contribute to developing new solutions that make it possible to deploy renewed strategies and business models. As our world evolves, greater challenges arise for expanding the client base and reaching markets.
To help companies in their development, there are different best practice packages for the SAP system, which can be used as true platforms for an organization’s growth.
“SAP Integration Suite solutions can be implemented in consumer goods, agriculture, financial, and banking industries, in addition to retail companies”, comments Eliane Serrano, Head of SAP Management and Delivery Platform at Meta.
SAP integration with other systems
SAP is a global leader in developing world-class technology solutions.
For example, SAP ERP remains an essential tool for managing numerous business processes in medium and large organizations, regardless of industry or segment.
In addition, SAP systems provide end-to-end solutions for real-time scenarios and markets. The German company constantly updates its technologies to keep close pace with Digital Transformation in business.
To help increase corporate productivity, it introduces solutions that serve as an efficient business integration platform.
In summary, by relying on SAP, an important ally is gained for building internal technological solutions, following the organization’s privacy policies. This way, it is also possible to link strategic, governance and operational aspects that together make up an organization’s environment.
By integrating third-party solutions, the comprehensive SAP connector positively impacts the information technology business sphere, as it enables the creation of new partnerships to serve a broad spectrum of clients and consumers.
Integrating SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA in the Cloud
Leading businesses in their industries have been ostensibly adhering to cloud computing. The Cloud concept is materialized in organizations’ reality as operations gain more space in the virtual environment.
By investing in IT and infrastructure, companies seek to simplify the complexity of their business processes. In these cases, when developing solutions that are compatible with SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA, it is possible to leverage customizations and extensions produced by those companies throughout their history.
We are talking about a tool integration that fits assertively regarding specific enterprises’ operations.
“Merging” third-party applications with SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA also brings other benefits, such as:
- Ease and Simplicity: A single gateway provides all the utilities required for rapidly performing integration, redirecting IT team efforts and cutting the expense of adapter-based one-off integrations.
- Speed: speed is the most relevant factor in online environments. Automated processes, such as SAP-integrated RPA processes in the cloud, eliminate slow manual deployment and testing, streamlining solution integration.
- Technological self-service: the intuitive configuration and user-friendly framework contained in the SAP management platform enable configuration, extension, and testing according to the project’s progress pace.
“With SAP tools, there is real-time monitoring of the entire production chain of a specific crop within agribusiness, for example. Thus, origination and traceability are available for access at any time. This technological approach is essential for companies that are adapting their practices to the ESG agenda”, says Meta’s Eliane Serrano.
Other benefits include SAP’s functionalities that aim to offer a consistent (and simple) approach to any type of integration of technological solutions produced by businesses.
Smart organizations through integrated processes
SAP’s approach to integration goes beyond technical issues in deploying new applications: it is a 360º view of data, technologies, and processes, always focused on generating value for the business. Innovating, therefore, becomes daily life in organizations.
With SAP Integration Suite, the entire business process gains scaling power, from managing leads, to work order requests and delivery, to optimizing user experience in their “consumer journey”.
SAP’s integration and management platform provide the business agility that companies crave for themselves, as data is no longer “retained in silos” and gains value across the business chain.
Integrating technological resources represents a market trend. In 2020, the Oxford Economics Study conducted studies whose results indicated that:
- 25% of businesses intend to become fully integrated as soon as possible;
- 88% of integration leaders indicated a strong increase in their operations’ transparency indexes;
- 94% of integration leaders recognized increased profit margins in their operations.
In this context, data technology becomes even more relevant in the competitive Digital Business market.
How to integrate SAP and Excel
SAP’s versatility enables large amounts of data, with extensions such as. XML or. CSV to be quickly integrated into the German company’s management platforms.
The SAP Integration Suite opens doors to accelerate the output of complex processes, such as managing and maintaining complex databases. In other words, transferring data through files becomes more agile and simplified.
For each object migration, for example, the SAP cockpit provides native Microsoft Excel XML files, which contain the necessary fields to complement the SAP S/4HANA target framework (if accessibility to a cloud-based platform is required).
This “exchange” between the solutions ultimately optimizes time resources and assertiveness in managing corporate information.
How to integrate SAP with Power BI
Business decision-making can gain more dynamism through SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence and SAP HANA integrated with Power BI. Here are some of the benefits organizations can achieve:
- Online reports shared according to organizational positions.
- “Extensibility” through API integration.
- Integrated digital security.
- Standardized data extraction, available through SAP solutions.
- Ability to update data in real time.
- Integrated application layer (XS engine).
